MLA: Tina Beaudry-Mellor, Regina University

Heavenly Father, thank you
for Tina Beaudry-Mellor and the broad perspective and experience she brings. 
Use it to help her be a strong voice in the legislature and give her wisdom as
she serves on the various committees and advisory boards. Bless her with a
refreshing summer and rich times with family and friends.  Amen.

Tina Beaudry-Mellor was nominated as the candidate for Regina University on March 18th, 2015. She is best known as a long time instructor in the Department of Politics and International Studies at the University of Regina where she has been awarded for outstanding teaching as both a sessional and with the President’s Teaching & Learning Scholars Award for Excellence in her collaboration on teaching civic engagement for post secondary institutions. Many of the MLAs on both sides of the Legislature have been invited to engage with students both in Tina’s classes and at the Legislature as she regularly visits with them for the Speech from the Throne and the Budget. 

Tina has published in everything from peer reviewed journals to op-eds and business magazines, commentating both on political & social issues. She is the former Chair of Equal Voice and served on the National Board as well as a former board member of the Saskatchewan Arts Board, the Community Investments Committee of the United Way and the Regina Transition House. At the University of Regina, she served for a considerable length of time on the Community Research Unit board of the Faculty of Arts. Tina has been the chief political analyst for Global Regina for every federal and provincial election since 2007. She has provided political analysis for radio, television and print media and is a strong social media user.

In addition to her academic work, she is the owner of a small management consulting business called TBM Strategies where she has done considerable policy work, most notably on streamlining processes for clients of both the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee program and on the Saskatchewan Surgical Initiative to reduce surgical wait times. She has also worked with the Continuing Education Centre of the University of Regina to write the Flexible Learning Strategy to build the institution’s online, televised and blended course and program offerings for students. 

Tina is married and has two very active teenage twins, Kayman and Montana – both of whom have represented Team Sask in multiple sports: track & field, swimming and most recently, her son played quarterback for the South Sask Selects at the Texas International Bowl this February.
