Jennifer Waldner

I start my day in the morning taking and returning calls from clients right away. I offer intake and assessments, referrals to community agencies, legal information and Family Justice Counselling appointments. Our team once took 80+ calls in one day, so I can attest to the fact that we are a valuable service for BC.
