We are excited to introduce you to Lenaia Pendergast. Lenaia joined the ASK Wellness Society team in November 2022!
WHAT LED YOU TO BE INTERESTED IN WORKING FOR ASK WELLNESS SOCIETY? I was previously working for lawyers, and I have always wanted to get into a society that helps others. I have personal experience and I am very compassionate.
WHAT MAKES YOU MOST PROUD ABOUT YOUR ROLE WITHIN ASK? I feel that I have a purpose. The team I work directly with is amazing. The feeling I get with working for ASK Wellness Society is positive change.
WHAT HAS SURPRISED YOU THE MOST ABOUT WORKING FOR ASK? The amount of services and programs that are within the Society. It is amazing how much it has grown in only the 3 months I have worked here.
WHAT DO YOU LIKE TO DO IN YOUR SPARE TIME? I absolutely love movies. I am always on the hunt for hidden gems. Snowboarding is a second hobby of mine. I try to get out as much as I can with friends for hikes and outdoor activities.
WHAT IS ONE THING YOU JUST CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT? My cats! I love them to death.
CAN YOU TELL US A FUN FACT OR SOMETHING FEW PEOPLE KNOW ABOUT YOU? I am a certified Veterinary Assistant. I love animals. Unfortunately, my love for them is too strong, so I cannot do that as a full time job. I used to volunteer at Raps cat sanctuary in Richmond, BC to cuddle, feed and cleanup after over 600 cats who are there to live out the rest of their lives.
Thank you for all your hard work and support to our department, Lenaia! You have been a wonderful addition to the team!
