OPP BTB Board of Directors​

Jacqueline Sbeyti

President, OPPBTB

Jacqueline Sbeyti, our OPPBTB President, is a special-education teacher in Moosonee. She has been part of the O.P.P. family since her husband joined the service in 2015 - something they had both dreamed of for many years. 

 

Growing up in a policing & corrections family, she understands how imperative positive relationships are, as well as peer support, in order for families to thrive. 

She is passionate about creating sustainable change around mental health and well-being within policing families. 

The relationships built within the ‘blue-line family’ are unique because there is an underlying layer of context, and that’s exactly why Jacqueline felt this calling within her to start up our chapter. 

She takes extreme pride in where she comes from and that gives her an incredible ability to not only relate to others, but give them a sense of security. We are proud and thankful to have her heading up OPP Beyong The Blue.

Melissa Heikamp

Vice-President, OPPBTB

Melissa is a high school teacher with the Simcoe County District School Board, and has been part of the policing family since her husband joined the Ontario Provincial Police in 2007.

 

As a mother of two, Melissa is aware of the challenges that police families often face, and is dedicated to helping provide the tools, resources and support needed to help O.P.P. families thrive.

Mandie-Leigh Warriner

Director of Operations, OPPBTB

Mandie-Leigh Warriner, a proud wife and mother of one, is passionate about changing the stigma surrounding mental health.

 

With many family members, past and present, who serve our communities on the front lines, she sees the mass importance of sharing with peers and being a part of a community where we can all feel supported and safe. 

 

Through her dedication to the cause, she hopes to aid in Mental Health education in general, while bringing officers and families together. In sharing our stories of tragedy and triumph, we can find that sense of community and know, with certainty, that we are all in this together.
