My name is Amanda McKay. I was a single mother of 2 boys before the Adult Learning Centre and I worked numerous odd jobs and struggled to keep afloat. I knew without proper education I would not have opportunities to better my life for my children. I decided to follow my sister’s footsteps and go back to school.
When I graduated from Ignite in 2004 I was hired on at the Regina Public Library and stayed with the organization until I started my career at Saskatchewan Government Insurance in 2008. I have had numerous positions within SGI, as there are so many different opportunities to choose from. I made the choice to move around the corporation to understand all I can about insurance. I have worked in Underwriting, Finance, SGI CANADA, Claims and I am currently working in the AutoFund Division. Today I am stable, enjoying life and working with a great corporation for the past 10 years.
I married an amazing man; I have my youngest son at home and he is graduating from high school this year. We live on an acreage outside of the city, love to travel, see other cultures and adventure in new regions and of course camping & fishing! Without the help from Ignite I wouldn't be where I am today. I am grateful to them for believing in me and what I could accomplish in my life.
