Sarina Gersher

Biography: 

Living in Saskatoon, Treaty 6 Territory and the Homeland of the Métis, Sarina is proud to have called Ward 8 home for nearly three decades. Ward 8 is made up of the following neighbourhoods: Brevoort Park, Briarwood, Brighton, College Park, East College Park, Greystone Heights and Hillcrest Management Area. Raised by her immigrant parents and grandparents in Greystone Heights, Sarina feels a multi-generational connection to the Ward’s diverse and vibrant community.

Sarina enjoys cycling, supports local businesses and gives back to the community by volunteering at many events for a variety of causes. She is a proud University of Saskatchewan graduate and has a far-reaching understanding of different cultures and approaches to problem-solving, gained through extensive world travel. Sarina is a GIS Analyst (i.e. makes maps).

Sarina brings her enthusiasm and innovative fresh ideas as to how Ward 8 and Saskatoon can continue to build upon being an inclusive, safe and sustainable City for people of all generations, backgrounds and abilities.
