Sandra Kaun, BSW
Sandra received her Bachelor of Social Work in 1998 from the University of Regina. After graduating, she did Community Outreach work as a Registered Social Worker for about 10 years. Parenting then became more of a priority for her so she spent most of the next 11 years working part-time with the Catholic School division as a substitute Educational Assistant and also worked 3 years at the Family Literacy Network as support staff then as the Family Literacy Coordinator. This allowed her to put her family first.
Sandra has decided to make a career change into financial services. She brings with her a passion for learning, strong interpersonal skills, years of experience in the human services, and a knack for financial skills.
Sandra’s volunteer work in the last few years has focused on supporting our democratic system by volunteering for local political candidates.
When not working Sandra enjoys traveling and spending time with her husband, Mario, her grandchildren, family and friends. Her priorities include family, eating healthily, walking in the trees and challenging herself by taking French classes, learning to play the Ukulele, painting and doing word and picture puzzles.
