Nanette joined CNIB in 2015. 

Over the past three years she has been a vital part of the CNIB Saskatchewan team, providing guidance and leadership on issues that related to operations and philanthropy.  Of note was the 2016 move to swing space where she over saw the successful retrofit of the new space and the move to our current location.
