Ranch Ehrlo Society welcomed new president/CEO Andrea Brittin to its leadership team.
Andrea assumed responsibilities as the agency’s president/CEO effective August 18, 2014.
Andrea looks forward to providing leadership to an organization that is having a positive impact on children and families in Saskatchewan and beyond.
“Coming to the Ranch is exciting because it is an opportunity to continue to work in an area that has been a great passion of mine for the last 23 years, and that’s child welfare,” she said from her office at the Hudson Administration Building. “Working at the Ranch is an opportunity to take on something very different and to see things from a new perspective.”
Andrea began her career as a frontline child protection/adoption worker for the Ministry of Social Services. She took on various roles within the Ministry, most recently acting as the Assistant Deputy Minister of Child and Family Services.
“When you take on a role like this it’s important to take your former hat off and put your new hat on. That is what I’ve done,” she explained. “I’m here solely for the Ranch— for the organization, for the people who work for this organization and ultimately for the children and families that we serve.”
Andrea is excited about the many opportunities and endeavours on the horizon, but is most enthusiastic about the opportunity for continuous improvement.
“What I’m excited about is joining such a strong team and reputable organization. I look forward to doing what I can to ensure Ranch Ehrlo stays strong and viable into the future and that each and every child, youth and family served by the Ranch will reach their full potential,” she added.
“It feels good to be part of something that is so meaningful and has such an impact on the community.”Read More
