As a past National Champion with the University of Regina Women’s Basketball team, Jana is committed to giving back to the community and has a strong focus on mentoring and empowering young women. “I am always looking for opportunities to give back to a community that has given me so much. I believe that if we empower our youth through strong female role models, it will lead to more diversity in the workplace and women in management.”

“I am very proud to receive a Lexpert Rising Stars Award for 2020 and to join the company of the past recipients within MLT Aikins,” Jana said. “I look forward to many more years of working with employers throughout Saskatchewan.”
