Brittany Cuff, Administrative Assistant
Brittany started working at Karlande following her graduation from the Office Administrative Executive Program at the College of the North Atlantic in April 2013. She brought with her many valuable skills that made her an integral part of Karlande. Her creative ability, her wonderful rapport with clients, her friendly nature, and her incredible work ethic have made her an important team member.
Brittany has just welcomed her first child, Scarlett, who arrived on June 21st, 5 weeks early. She is tiny, but she is mighty ☺ Although Brittany will be away from Karlande during her maternity leave, she will remain in contact and will be back at the end of her leave.
Adreanna Brace, Administrative Assistant
Adreanna Brace has joined the Karlande team. Adreanna is a native of Cape Breton, Nova Scotia. She moved to Grand Falls-Windsor 5 years ago. In April, 2015, Adreanna graduated from the Office Administration-Executive Program at the College of the North Atlantic in Grand Falls. She started work at Karlande in May 2016 as a maternity replacement for Brittany.
Adreanna has been a valuable addition to the Karlande staff. She is enthusiastic, hard working, friendly and a real team-player. She is also a quick learner, which has proven to be great, since little Scarlett decided to make her appearance into the world 5 weeks early. J Adreanna is determined to make herself so invaluable that she will remain with the Karlande team when Brittany returns after her maternity leave. She is just that good. ☺
