I am pleased to introduce Amanda Wong as our new Development Assistant. Amanda began in her role on June 14 and had just one week of training with Christiane before going solo in the front office. She is quickly acclimatizing to the L’Arche community and the many tasks and details of the position. Amanda comes to us as with experience in working with The Foundation Fighting Blindness where she coordinated the successful Comic Vision 2010. Previous to that Amanda was a Business Analyst at Telus and is a graduate of McGill University.
“My first few weeks at L’Arche have been wonderful. I’ve started to work on a couple projects and I’m really looking forward to experiencing this position at its fullest…creating innovative ways of raising funds and spreading the word of the L’Arche Community. Everyone has been extremely welcoming and that has really enhanced my experience. Thank you for the warm welcome and I look forward to a great future here at L’Arche!”
