Melissa Cairns

Project Coordinator

Melissa first joined Plan Institute as a co-op student in 2017 and is currently enjoying the opportunity to be our Projects Coordinator. She graduated from Simon Fraser University in June 2019 with her Bachelor of Arts Degree in Criminology and Psychology. Over the past few years, Melissa realized that she wanted to work in prevention and education initiatives that support disadvantaged and at risk people and communities, and Plan Institute became the perfect fit. Melissa also owns an all-natural cleaning business with her wife, Regan, and is grateful for the many ways in which she can help others.
