Jaydene is a long-time resident of downtown Hamilton and a mom of one. She identifies as a Michif woman whose father’s family live in central and northern Saskatchewan. She has a penchant for connecting people and moving them to make change in their community. Though she has done this kind of work for universities and non-profits, she takes the greatest pleasure in doing it for free and finding collective power and courage in relationship. Though living in Hamilton has become increasingly difficult in recent years, she still loves the city and the people who live here. It brings her joy to be able to meet someone and help them solve a problem, which makes the Constituency Office a lovely fit. When it’s nice out, you can find her down by the water or walking along the escarpment with a decaf coffee and toddler on her hip.
