Board of Directors


Stacey Ginter CMN

I am Stacey Ginter and I am pleased to be serving as your SSNM President again for the 2022-2023 term


SSNM is coming off a milestone year as we celebrated our 50th anniversary as an association. We are very proud to have remained a chapter while other provincial chapters have had to dissolve. We celebrated this milestone last year at the 2022 CSNM Conference which was held in Saskatoon in June. Hopefully many of you had the opportunity to attend this event. Myself and the conference team are proud of the quality education event we were able to offer our membership, either in person or virtually.

I am the Central Ordering Office Supervisor and I work out of Saskatoon City Hospital. I have been working in the Food and Nutrition industry for 34 years and have been a SSNM board member  for 12 of those years. I presently also sit on the CSNM Board of Directors as the Certification Manager. I find  both roles extremely rewarding and I would highly recommend our members to consider becoming a board member of either of these boards.


In my free time I love to spend time at our cabin at Struthers Lake with my husband Greg and our two fur babies Ellie and Cali. I have three grown step daughters and two grandsons who are 8 months and 9 years old.

SSNM Communications Chairperson Laurette St. Jacques

I am very excited to be serving as this year’s Conference Chairperson. I have been serving on the SSNM Board for the past 9 years in various roles.


I have worked at the Saskatoon Health Region for the past 10 years. I have worked at all three acute sites in Saskatoon as well as several long-term sites. Presently I am working at Both Royal University Hospital, Jim Pattisons Children Hospital and City Hospital in a variety of roles but mostly as a Food Service Supervisor.

In my spare time I like to be outdoors and being active with my family and our fur baby. We like to spend our time at the lake year-round. In the winter you will most catch us out on the snowmobile trails or in the backcountry.


I look forward to working with the rest of the SSNM board members this year.

See you all at the SSNM Conference

After completing the Food and Nutrition Management course I supervised at both Saskatoon City Hospital and Royal University Hospital in a variety of different capacities. For the past few years I have enjoyed working in a very meticulous position as the Scheduling Supervisor at Saskatoon City Hospital.  I am currently enjoying a role in Human Resources.


Thank you to all of you who have taken interest in SSNM. I would also like to encourage all of you to continue learning and growing within yourselves and your profession while taking time to enjoy life!

I am currently in the position of secretary/membership on the SSNM board.  My past experience on the SSNM board was in the position of President (3 year term).
