Hey, I’m Colin. I grew up here and recently returned after several years in Asia, Montreal, and digital nomading around Latin America and Europe. I’m currently Head of Growth and UX at a Silicon Valley coliving startup, and FUSION Saint John is an excellent outlet for me to be able to engage with and contribute to the community now that I work remotely.
Hi! I’m Jane Bardsley. I am the Chair of FUSION Saint John. I have been on the board for two years and love Saint John! I work in the field of communications and I have a passion for the betterment of my community. In my spare time, I love to connect with my family and friends, network, form meaningful partnerships, think strategically, and of course, read a good book.
I am a lawyer with Cox & Palmer and I currently live in uptown Saint John. I grew up in Rothesay and then moved away for school. Moving back to Saint John after several years away has been an eye-opening experience. The City of Saint John is more vibrant than ever. Being a part of FUSION has helped me connect (and re-connect) with some of the great people in this city.
I earned my law degree at the University of New Brunswick in Fredericton. Prior to law school, I obtained a Bachelor of Science in Psychology at the University of Bridgeport in Connecticut. While attending the University of Bridgeport, I spent four years competing as an NCAA gymnast.
I graduated from UNB Saint John in 2015 with a Science degree. This is my second year as a director with Fusion and I’m excited to continue to with the momentum we’ve created. I joined Fusion because I wanted to continue being involved with my community and our the targeted age demographic. I love Saint John! Message us to get involved!!
I wanted to join FUSION Saint John to help make a difference and promote the Saint John area as a great place to live, work and play. I am finishing up my final year at UNB, majoring in Marketing and minor in E-commerce. My goal is to provide marketing that delivers results!
My biggest motivation to join Fusion was to be a part of a group of young professionals who make our city so special and unique, and to also utilize my experience in event planning to help grow our community.
I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts (BA) from the University of New Brunswick, Saint John, with a major in French and a minor in Linguistics. Language and communication have always been my forté, and something I thoroughly enjoy.
I look forward to using my skills within this wonderful organization!
