BOARD OF DIRECTORS
Tracy Humphreys, Founder and Chair
Tracy is a mom to three children with disabilities and she herself has ADHD and other invisible disabilities. She has been an active volunteer in BC schools for over 20 years, as a board member on her local PACs, the District PAC in Victoria (VCPAC), and as a BCCPAC representative for VCPAC. She also served as Board Vice President of Elizabeth Buckley School for 3 years. She is currently a consultant CEO for beauty companies, a partner in CareQuadrant, and winner of the 2019 Victoria Community Leadership Award in Lifelong Learning for her work with BCEdAccess as a full time volunteer advocate for families of children with disabilities in British Columbia schools since 2014.
Nicole Kaler, Treasurer
Nicole has three school aged children in the Surrey School District. After her eldest child’s Autism diagnosis, Nicole dedicated herself to becoming a career parent committed to the caregiving and advocacy required to support her daughter. Nicole is currently focused on the volunteerism and community activism that can leverage the experience and knowledge that she has acquired in the process of securing her daughter’s right to an education. Her efforts have included advocacy at the school level, various political levels, and ultimately within the Human Rights Tribunal process.
Nicole works with BCEdAccess to use her experiences to empower parents and challenge our education system so that all children have an equitable opportunity and a safe and healthy experience in BC public schools.
Chantelle Morvay-Adams, Secretary
Chantelle is a passionate advocate for Inclusion. Her journey started over 11 years ago with the birth of her first son. A life full of detours, this new one in her life catapulted her into the role of advocate.
She believes creating connections in our local communities can help strengthen understanding of our diverse identities that will ultimately help those historically marginalized to flourish and to reach their full potential.
This led her to take up the role of DPAC C0-Chair for the Mission School District, . She also started an Inclusion Subcommittee at her children’s school to foster a mindset of Inclusion within the school community. She also won honourable mention for her CIVL 101.7 radio show, All In, delving into what Inclusion means to individuals and society as a whole.
The Board of Directors of the BCEdAccess Society works with a dedicated group of active volunteers comprising our Advisory Board, who moderate the Facebook group and help plan and execute group actions. Individually and collectively, members of our discussion group take up action which we support and promote.
