What our staff say

Andrea Taylor

Recruitment Advisor

I came to work at WBF because I believe in the work that has been done for the past 25 years in this organization. I stay at WBF because the culture is one of inclusion, acceptance, and kindness.

I always feel like my work matters to the people in the organization and to the people we serve in our communities.

There are many opportunities for personal and professional learning and being able to grow both formally and informally within the organization is supported wholeheartedly. This is hands down the best place I’ve ever worked.

Ceanne Lee

Program Facilitator Lead

I have worked with WBF for 3 years as a program facilitator lead, and I have loved every minute of it. I began my career as a facilitator, and I am grateful that WBF takes a vested interest in their employees as this has allowed me to grow in my career.

As a program facilitator I have had the opportunity to work alongside hundreds of women and learn something new with each student. One of the things that I appreciate most about WBF is the individualized and student-centered approach that is taken with each person.

We are not a one size fits all organization because no one person is the same. Additionally, as a social worker, this approach is important to me. WBF has supported countless women on their journey towards economic security and it is exhilarating to be a part of that.

Rosanne Verhulst

Indigenous Relations Lead

As an Indigenous woman, I have felt tremendous support since day 1.

WBF acknowledges my Indigenous culture and that aspires me daily to work towards reconciliation.

WBF upholds Indigenous relationships, and my entire team is enthusiastic, genuine and shares the same passion as me in helping women thrive to succeed.

Admissions & Enrolment Advisor

During my time with WBF, I have learned so much about myself, the skilled trades, and my community. Many opportunities for personal growth have allowed me in my short time with WBF to discover more about my habits, my mindset and how I work with others.

The support received from management has been incredible. I have not worked with one manager so far who did not seem genuinely interested in employee growth across the agency.

My role with this expansion has allowed me to expand on my current skill set and make genuine community connections for a cause that is important to myself and many others within my life, and I can say with confidence that the work that WBF is currently doing is creating substantial and visible change across the country.

Meghan McCracken

Career Advisor

Reflecting on my time at WBF, I can truly say it’s been a journey of self-discovery and growth. The supportive atmosphere within my team has been instrumental in this process, and I’ve found the culture of kindness here to be incredibly uplifting.

Working directly with our amazing students is a constant source of excitement and inspiration for me.

Their determination pushes me to step out of my comfort zone every day. I love what I do, especially the moments of laughter shared with both students and colleagues. WBF has not only given me a fulfilling career but has also empowered me to make a real difference in people’s lives.
