With Thrive since 2022
Hana Felix was elected to the Board in December 2021. Originally from the Czech Republic, Hana emigrated to Canada after finishing law school and now calls Victoria home. Their interest in the Board stems from their background in volunteering with vulnerable children and adults as well as their own experiences with developmental and mental wellness within their family. They are passionate about new developments in trauma-informed services and schooling. Outside of their volunteer work Hana is a Victoria-based lawyer with Island Law Office* where they specialize in Wills and Estates as well as general Civil Litigation. Hana hopes to bring a personal perspective as well as legal expertise to the Board.

We are committed to acknowledging our relationship with these unceded lands and communities, at staff and Board meetings, and during our hosted events. We encourage the evolving learning and awareness of our staff, Board, and the Thrive community, discovering and striving for meaning and personal connection within each acknowledgement.Statement of Reconciliation
