Dayna’s supplemental responsibilities during her 10-year tenure at the CWB also involved facilitating government and stakeholder relations during a period of intense public scrutiny and debate.

In addition to Dayna’s extensive professional experience, which includes five years as an associate at Aikins, MacAulay & Thorvaldson LLP in the early 2000s, she is a passionate Winnipegger with a drive to volunteer. Currently the vice-chair of the Winnipeg Football Club’s board of directors and the first woman to represent the Winnipeg Football Club on the CFL Board of Governors. Dayna previously served as a director for Special Olympics Manitoba and led the team that brought the Gold Medal Plates competition to Winnipeg.

Dayna earned a Bachelor of Laws degree from the University of Manitoba. Previously, she completed a Bachelor of Arts degree (honours) from the same institution, majoring in political science.
