HR spotlight: Amanda Werny

Amanda started with ASLS in Grande Prairie in September 2018. She came to us from the Grande Prairie Public School District where she was an Educational Assistant.

Although Amanda started part-time in our Food Program as the coordinator, that changed to full-time in January when she accepted the Administrative & Food Program Coordinator role. She has recently been named Residential Administrative Coordinator, where she will assist Team Leads with Person Centered Plans across the organization. Our staff will also see her around offices and residences assisting with on-boarding, orientations, health & safety and ensuring we also provide the highest level of support.

So yes, she is very busy!
