OSBHA October Newsletter

You are here

In our October newsletter, we interview Jen Shin, the new Operations Manager at OSBHA!

This month, we're welcoming Jen Shin to OSBHA as our new Operations Manager. We're so thrilled to have her on our team. Jen answered some questions about her passions and what brings her to OSBHA.

What brings you to this work?
My own personal experience with mental health drew me to the social services sector five years ago. I always wished I had more culturally-relevant and trauma-informed support in my youth and I am passionate about missions that push this forward in meaningful ways.

What excites you most about being the Operations Manager at OSBHA?
I really love thinking about processes and how they inherently favor and perpetuate dominant culture. It’s cool to be part of a team that is willing to embark on that work with me!

What are two things you love to do when you're not at work?
I love having howling matches with my dog Yoshi and writing/reflecting on my past/present experiences through personal essays, zines, and fiction.

If you could have any superpower, what would it be, and how would you use it to advance health equity?
I would give everyone the highest level of self-awareness and empathy so we can all understand how we affect one another in more nuanced and profound ways.

Please join us in welcoming Jen to our team! Jen can be reached at jen@osbha.org.
