We would like to introduce the newest member to our team here at Volunteer Burnaby, Mackenzie Hoff-Bell. Mackenzie is our Community Engagement Coordinator, who will help plan, develop, manage, and promote activities within Burnaby and New Westminister.

We first met Mackenzie in the Summer of 2017, when she came to work with us as a Special Events Coordinator. With a degree in Communications from Simon Fraser University, Mackenzie has previously worked as a freelance Digital Marketer and business co-owner, where she has developed a passion for finding creative ways to help strengthen the relationship between an organization and their audience.

Mackenzie’s admiration for non-profit work has grown since her time with us in 2017. Since then, she has volunteered with groups focused on women’s rights and harm reduction. She currently works with The Bloom Group at one of their hospice centres. In her spare time, Mackenzie enjoys painting, teaching herself how to play the saxophone, and re-watching the Lord of the Rings trilogy!

Mackenzie’s goal in this role is to further the connection that Volunteer Burnaby has with it’s community and introduce members of the community to volunteerism in a unique and creative way.
