Jeff MacKay


Jeff has been a patient his whole life and has the scars to prove it. In the process, he learned the importance and necessity of patient advocacy and experienced just how effective patient focused health care can be.

A transplanted bagpiper from the east coast, Jeff takes his triplets to the hike and play in the mountains every chance he gets. Professionally, Jeff enables team-based and patient-inclusive care with technology and privacy compliance support as the Director of Marketing at Brightsquid Secure Communications Corp. Working with providers, administrators, and patients throughout Alberta and beyond has given Jeff a unique understanding of the challenges faced by everyone involved.

The way the Health Coalition of Alberta represents a unified voice for common patient interest across a wide spectrum of experience and need is a cause Jeff believes can inspire improved care for all Albertans in the near-term and for generations to come. Jeff has been a member of the Health Coalition of Alberta since 2018.
