Our Team

The Saskatchewan in motion movement is supported by strategic partner organizations and a team of staff to help inspire action, provide tools and resources and keep us all connected. Saskatchewan in motion is supported by the Community Initiatives Fund as part of a commitment to a sustainable future for Saskatchewan people.

Marnie Forsberg

Manager – Saskatchewan in motion

Marnie Forsberg joined the in motion team on day one and has been tireless in her efforts ever since! Hailing from Eston, Saskatchewan, she embodies a small-town friendly spirit and "get ‘er-done" approach.

In 2018 Marnie was recognized by colleagues as a “Sit Disturber” - a woman making a difference in the lives of children and youth in our province. Marnie is truly our Magician of Mobilization because of her ability to transform a few volunteers to a powerful force for change. In addition to knowing every inch of Saskatchewan highways, Marnie's contributions reach beyond our borders through her contributions to the Canadian Association for the Advancement of Women and Sport & Physical Activity board of directors, and her leadership on numerous volunteer committees.

Jill McDougall

Office Administrator

Jill McDougall is our own Action Hero! She keeps the in motion office humming. She’s the friendly and helpful voice to our phone calls, e-mails, web requests and needs of the in motion movement. Although her daily to do list is endless and varied, she’ll make you think that she has all the time in the world just for YOU!...

In addition to providing all the "behind the scenes" activities that keep the staff, volunteers and members moving ahead, she provides wisdom and guidance to the in motion strategic and operations plans. Jill has performed her super powers in many organizations including 15 years as assistant to the General Manager of the Saskatchewan Roughriders Football Club.

Julia Frigault

Community Action Specialist

Julia Frigault is the newest member of the in motion team. As a recruit from the University of Ottawa, just finishing up her degree and Master of Arts degree in Human Kinetics, Julia came to Saskatchewan looking for adventure and a chance to work with our amazing communities.

Julia brings with her a passion for community mobilization with a special place in her heart for northern and First Nation communities.

We can’t wait to see where Julia’s wisdom, passion and energy takes us next!

Kim Herperger

Communication Strategist

Kim Herperger is the principal of Strategic Spark Communications – a company she built on her reputation for high quality writing, editing and strategic communication planning.
Saskatchewan in motion is one of Kim’s favorite clients – we must be because she has been guiding, supporting and leading our communications activities for more than 12 years.
Her super powers are her simple, clear and fun writing style and her ability to navigate the emerging world of social media with style and innovation. Under Kim’s direction, in motion is recognized as leading edge in using social media to its full potential.

Kim is a social media junkie, Scrabble fanatic and physical activity advocate who can’t let a day pass without spending at least a half hour reading.

Brenden Branscombe

Community Development Specialist

Brenden Branscombe joined the in motion team in October 2019, but his first interaction with our organization took place about five years prior. Brenden volunteered with an in motion Community Action Team in his hometown of Nipawin. Eventually he would take off for the big city of Regina, where he would hold several positions in the tourism and community economic development sectors.

Today, Brenden is passionate about the connection between positive mental health and getting our bodies moving. He hopes to make a difference in the lives of children and youth who are growing up in a world where physical and mental resiliency are important skills to have and utilize.

The in motion team is thankful to have Brenden leading the charge for the Saskatchewan Blue Cross Go Out & Play Community Challenge. He is also working as a key player in various working groups and committees throughout our organization and across the province.
