Jasmine Cumberland is a human resources business leader who’s had experience across industries including professional services (law and accounting), retail, entertainment, and technology at organizations ranging in size from start-up to Fortune 50. She is currently a Vice President and member of the executive team at a Fintech start-up in Toronto, in addition to running her own business focussed on leadership coaching and consulting.
Community engagement is incredibly important to Jasmine, who previously served as a member of the SFU Alumni Association Board of Directors for over six years, including over two years as President. Jasmine was also a founding Board Member and former Chair of the JDC West Board of Directors, which supports Western Canada’s largest undergraduate business case competition serving over 800 students annually.
As a former skating instructor of over 15 years, Jasmine was inspired by seeing her students develop and master their own skating skills. This experience drives her passion for supporting increased access to participation in sport for Canadians with a disability. Having had her own Olympic moment as a volunteer with the Vancouver 2010 Olympics, she hopes that through additional support to Para sport in Canada, young Para athletes will be able to take pride in seeing talented Paralympians excelling and performing at the highest levels, leading to their own Paralympic moment!
Jasmine holds a Global Professional Master of Laws degree from the University of Toronto and an Honours Bachelor of Business Administration degree from Simon Fraser University, in addition to designations in coaching and human resources.
