The Inaugural Jenny Nash Therapeutic Fund

In memory of Jenny Nash

Jenny Nash began her career helping youth by working in group homes as a cook, and later became a youth and family therapist, specializing in art and play therapy. For many years, she was employed in the Lower Mainland of BC with organizations such as the Elizabeth Fry Society and St. Leonard’s Youth & Family Society.

Additionally, she contributed her passion and expertise as a consultant, providing clinical supervision to other therapists. Jenny believed in working with the family as a whole and utilized creative tools such as art, sand trays, and puppets to connect with children and encourage them to talk about their feelings. Her career as a family therapist spanned almost 45 years. Along the way, Jenny was an encouraging mentor to many people.

At 77, Jenny retired from a career she loved and relocated to Vancouver Island to be closer to her daughter.

Jenny passed away at the age of 81. She will be remembered for her youthful energy, positive spirit, and contagious laugh.
