Kaleena Ipema


Program Assistant, Communications

Kaleena joined Health Quality BC in March 2023 and is currently a Program Assistant on the Communications & Public Relations team.

Kaleena graduated from the University of British Columbia with a dual degree in Honours English and a Master of Management in 2022. With a lifelong passion for storytelling, her studies have led her to pursue a career in Communications & Public Relations. Whether she’s creating content for newsletters, posting for social media, or proof-reading a press release, Kaleena enjoys any and all things editing! As an extrovert, she loves being around people and is especially grateful for the opportunity to collaborate on Council projects at the Vancouver office. Kaleena has prior experience working in health communications from the UBC School of Nursing, where she worked as a Communications Assistant managing social media, alumni engagement, and events during the School’s centenary year. She is very excited to join HQBC and work on initiatives to help improve patient care for British Columbians.

When she’s not working, you’ll find Kaleena reading a novel, working on her novel, or out for a walk in the beautiful parks around Vancouver.
