Treaty 8 Polytechnic


Judy Kim-Meneen                                                                        President/Chief Executive Officer

Identifying myself as a Korean woman, a wife and partner to a Cree husband, and a mother to 3 Treaty children has shaped my unique perspectives and aspirations. I like to challenge myself to go above and beyond whatever opportunities arise and take pride in my persistence, diligence, and empathy. Life has taught me to seek out opportunities whether or not they are risky decisions and my resourceful working style have benefited me in whatever project I start.

My biggest strength is my lived experiences and making lemonade from the lemons in my life. My family is Driftpile Cree Nation and North Saskatchewan and life achievement are my 3 children who are finding their own paths in life. My greatest satisfaction comes from helping people with their visions and supporting them to achieve their goals and my background in finance and administration is a huge asset.
