Vesna Sertić Joins Santis Health to Help Clients Navigate Alberta’s Evolving Health Care Landscape


Calgary, AB – December 13, 2023 — Santis Health continues to expand its Western Canada Practice with the addition of Vesna Sertić as a Senior Consultant. Vesna’s addition comes at an important period of change and restructuring within the Alberta health system. Equipped with an impressive Conservative network across the country and insights into Alberta’s provincial government, Vesna will leverage this expertise to support clients in understanding what’s next for health in the province.

“Alberta is a unique jurisdiction for our clients, offering both potential growth and uncertainty due to recent structural changes to the health system,” said Patrick Nelson, Managing Partner at Santis Health. “Vesna’s extensive background in the Alberta Government, and in the Premier’s Office, positions her to help health care organizations across Canada navigate relationship-building and engagement in the province.”

Prior to joining Santis, Vesna served in the Office of the Honourable Danielle Smith, Premier of Alberta, working as the Manager of Stakeholder Relations and then continuing to lead her tour team as Manager of Tour and Scheduling. Before working in the Premier’s Office, Vesna held various roles in the office of the Honourable Tanya Fir, MLA and Minister of Arts, Culture and Status of Women.

Vesna also has experience in political campaign management and stakeholder relations, most recently in senior roles on the Alberta Provincial election in the spring of 2023 and a provincial leadership campaign in the fall of 2022. Vesna is active with federal Conservative Party of Canada (CPC), most recently working on MP Shuv Majumdar’s general by-election in Calgary, as well as CPC nominations in British Columbia.

“Vesna’s experience and connections in Alberta will continue to elevate Santis’ Western Canada practice,” said Steve Vander Wal, Vice President, Western Canada. “Since opening the Vancouver office last fall, our team, footprint and client base has grown exponentially, and Vesna’s expertise will be a welcome addition to the entire team.”
