Our People

PMB’s two Principals, Jennifer and Janeen, have 50 combined years of experience working in health and human services, nationally and internationally. They are commended for their exceptional skills and effective ways of working with people. PMB brings in associates and subject matter experts when needed to form the best teams to meet project objectives.

Jennifer Keilty-Friesen

Jennifer is well recognized by clients for delving into projects with unbridled enthusiasm, being sharp as a tack, and peppering conversations with her clever wit. Regardless of whether the clients come from health or human services, government or private industry, Jennifer is able to quickly attune to the culture of the people she works with, assess and assist them to clearly articulate a path forward. Prior to consulting, Jennifer held leadership and management positions in several community service organizations, including a legal centre for people with disabilities in Sydney, Australia where she also completed her Masters degree in Public Health. A keen learner and analytical thinker, Jennifer has her Manager of Quality and Organizational Excellence Certification and has extensive training in creative problem solving and design thinking. Together, she and Janeen are sought after presenters who speak on the topics of innovation – how to plan for it, implement it and evaluate it, quality management, outcomes measurement, leadership, and learning organizations.

Janeen Halliwell

Clients describe Janeen as being highly focused, engaging, bright, and fun! With three start-up businesses under her belt, Janeen walks the talk when it comes to leadership and speaks from experience – both successes and failures – the best foundations for learning. Her work has intentionally evolved from a focus on quality to advancing new thinking and driving innovation in health and human services. Over the past 30 years Janeen has worked in Canada (Ontario, BC and Alberta), USA, Australia, Mexico, the United Kingdom, and Tanzania, and she has taught for two universities. In 2012, she founded ‘We Move Forward,’ a 4-day International Women’s Day Conference held on Isla Mujeres, Mexico. Janeen received a certificate of recognition from UN WOMEN for empowering women through this ongoing project. Janeen strongly believes that you’ll never feel more alive than when you feel a little scared, and strongly encourages individuals and organizations to explore and take risks. Janeen has a MA in Leadership and is a FourSight Certified Facilitator.

Carly Barrett

PMB is fortunate to have Carly Barrett as our Project Administrator. Carly has a biology background and is a recent graduate from Algonquin College’s Technical Writing program. She’s one of those rare people who enjoys putting together reference lists and bibliographies – and does it well! With her keen eye for detail, sharp research skills, and a thirst for knowledge, Carly is our go-to to keep projects ticking along. People who meet Carly are quickly won over by her warm demeanour and welcoming personality. After getting to know her, you will be further impressed with her triple threat – great brains, great personality and a slightly sick sense of humour. Did we mention that she can do a mean GANTT chart? Carly believes that being a happy person is not only the right thing to do, it’s the easy thing.

Rocky (aka "Rockstar")

Rocky is PMB's mascot. He weighs in at 100 pounds and is the only member of PMB whose weight will be going public. Although he’s a drop out from the College of Dog Obedience, he is a lifelong learner who gets along well with anyone he meets and brings a good attitude to the workplace. His primary role is getting the rest of PMB away from their computers and out for their daily bout of fresh air. A note to our clients, when on conference calls, it's not a horse that you’re hearing in the background, it’s Rocky.
