Several times each semester, President Lahey brings a King’s alum or community member to have lunch in the lodge with current students. Together, they enjoy a delicious meal and casual conversation. This time, King’s Vice Chair of the Board of Governors, Naomi Rosenfeld.

Naomi Rosenfeld has recently pivoted in her career by entering the health care industry, working alongside her father at their family-owned occupational health and safety consulting company based in Mississauga, Ontario.

For the decade previous to that, Naomi was a rising leader in Canada’s non-profit sector, having led a Jewish community organization in Halifax, Nova Scotia for more than 5 years. In this role, Naomi oversaw all aspects of the organization’s operations, including fundraising and financial management, developing new and innovative programming, coordinating board and committee governance, organizing volunteerism and community engagement, as well as implementing all advocacy and government relations strategies.

Naomi holds a BScH from Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario, where she graduated with the gold medal in Psychology and admission into the Tricolour Society – the highest non-academic, non-athletic honour that can be bestowed upon a student. She also holds a Master of Arts and an MBA from Brandeis University in Waltham, Massachusetts. Naomi is currently a student at Harvard Business School in their Program for Leadership Development – an accelerated alternative to an Executive MBA (EMBA) – with the support of a scholarship from Harvard Business School’s Fund for Leadership and Innovation.

As a volunteer, Naomi is currently the Vice Chair of the Board of Governors of the University of King’s College in Halifax, Nova Scotia and a member of the Government of Canada’s Cross-Cultural Roundtable on Security (CCRS), having been appointed to a 3-year term by the Minister of Public Safety, the Minister of Justice and the Attorney General of Canada.

Naomi lives in Toronto, ON, with her husband and 2-year-old daughter.

To reserve your spot at the table with Naomi on March 20, please email Alumni Relations Manager Kimberly Gosse at with your dietary restrictions. The first 10 students to register will be able to attend.
