Before coming to the Provincial Council for Maternal and Child Health, Roxana was the Vice President of Strategy and Clinical Operations at The Hincks-Dellcrest Centre, a specialized paediatric mental health treatment, research, and education centre in Toronto. In this role, she led significant clinical service transformation, culminating in a voluntary integration with The Hospital for Sick Children to support the delivery of integrated, interdisciplinary, and high quality treatment for children and families with complex mental health needs, across the continuum of care from acute, hospital based services to complex continuing care in the community.
Prior to her position with Hincks-Dellcrest, Roxana worked with the Princess Margaret Cancer Centre in the University Health Network as the Director of Strategic Planning and Implementation, where she developed a strategic plan for the organization, provided operational leadership for initiatives aimed at implementing the strategic plan, and co-led the Princess Margaret Cancer Centre Quality Committee. Under the auspices of Cancer Care Ontario (CCO), the Princess Margaret is the Regional Cancer Program for Toronto Central South, and Roxana undertook a concurrent secondment to support this portfolio during her time at the hospital, where she was responsible for directing program planning and leading CCO-supported initiatives, as well as monitoring and reporting on progress against CCO deliverables and the Ontario Cancer Plan.
Roxana trained as a medical geneticist with a focus on developmental biology and oncology, and has a Masters of Health Science from the Institute of Health Policy, Management, and Evaluation at the University of Toronto.
