Sandra Clarkson

Executive Director

Sandra Clarkson joined the DI in January 2017 as associate executive director, bringing with her more than 25 years of experience working with vulnerable populations. In addition to serving on a number of non-profit boards, Sandra provided strategic planning, assessment and other management consulting services to non-profits through her own MSH Strategies Inc.

Sandra understands the critical role the DI plays in the spectrum of care for single homeless adults in Calgary, and brings a wealth of experience as an advocate for operational excellence; as an accomplished project manager who empowers high-performance teams; and as a strong community collaborator with a vision to create opportunities that result in long-term systemic improvements for citizens in need.
