We are thrilled to introduce our new Executive Director, Sandra McKellar!

Sandra has called Newfoundland and Labrador her home since 2012. She most recently held the position of Executive Director at the Gander Women’s Centre where she acted as a change agent helping the organization focus and address matters such as organizational effectiveness, program development, and service delivery.

Sandra’s keen interest in working with others and commitment to her community is highlighted by her 30 years of experience in the non-profit sector. Her professional experience includes that of crisis worker at a transitional house, psycho-educational consultant with a rural/urban Board of Education, and family therapist. Additionally, she is a certified Mental Health First Aid and Applied Suicide Intervention Skills trainer presenter. Sandra’s volunteer experience is extensive and includes leadership positions at local and provincial levels.

Sandra’s extensive education and training include an undergraduate degree in Sociology/Anthropology at the University of Guelph, a graduate diploma in Child Assessment and Counselling at the University of Toronto, and a Master’s of Science in Criminal Justice from Bowling Green State University.

As a spouse and a mother of multi-generation children, Sandra brings a unique perspective to the many facets of balancing motherhood and a fulfilling career. She sees the threads of opportunity that wind through an organization and with the help of staff, board members and the community at large, brings them together into a unified, meaningful service.

We are truly grateful to work with someone as skilled and thoughtful as Sandra and we look forward to further announcements and progress as we work under her leadership. Welcome, Sandra!
