Living in Saskatoon, Treaty 6 Territory and the Homeland of the Métis, Sarina has been proud to call Ward 8 home for nearly three decades. Raised by her immigrant parents and grandparents in Greystone Heights, Sarina feels a multi-generational connection to the Ward’s diverse and vibrant community. Ward 8 is made up of the following neighbourhoods: Brevoort Park, Briarwood, Brighton, College Park, East College Park, Greystone Heights and Hillcrest Management Area.
Sarina can be seen volunteering at a number of events and for a variety of causes, enjoys cycling and supporting local businesses. She is a proud University of Saskatchewan graduate and has a far-reaching understanding of different cultures and approaches to problem-solving, gained through extensive world travel. Sarina is a GIS Analyst (i.e. makes maps).
Sarina brings her enthusiasm and fresh ideas about how Ward 8 and this city can remain inclusive, safe and sustainable for people of all generations and abilities.
