Dr. K. Kellie Leitch O. Ont., MP, MD, MBA, FRCS(C)

Dr. K. Kellie Leitch, M.P. (Simcoe-Grey) founded The Sandbox Project in 2009 as a result of her extensive research conducted for the Government of Canada in her report Reaching for the Top published in 2008. At the time, Dr. Leitch's experience as a pediatric orthopedic surgeon and associate professor of surgery, along with her role as Chair of the Ivey Centre for Health Innovation and Leadership informed this work. 

Dr. Leitch was selected as one of Canada’s Top 40 Under 40 for her work in both medicine and business in 2005. She has published in the clinical and best practice model areas of the health care field. In 2010, Dr. Leitch received the Order of Ontario for her work advocating for children and youth. Since her election to the House of Commons in 2011, she has entrusted the stewardship of the organization to the Board of Directors and President & CEO.
