Lanark, Leeds and Grenville Addictions and Mental Health (LLGAMH) has recently welcomed two new members to its team. Andrew Brown is LLGAMH’s new Director of Clinical Operations and Myra Baumann is taking on the new role of Director of Finance and Administration.
“Augmenting our senior leadership team to better support our front-line team is one of our key priorities,” explains CEO Patricia Kyle. “We are excited to have Andrew and Myra on board.”
Andrew Brown’s journey to Brockville has had some interesting twists and turns. He grew up in Ottawa and went to Carleton University. Then his career took him to BC for more than 25 years. A decision last year to move back to Ottawa included a side trip to Brockville to visit a friend. Then came the new opportunity with LLGAMH. “When I was told about the role, it felt like kismet again. I was quite taken by Patricia’s vision and the transition point that the Agency is at. I wanted to be part of that.”
When not working, Andrew enjoys gardening, mountain biking, and vintage cars. He plans to go to every classic care show in eastern Ontario this summer.
When Myra Baumann saw the LLGAMH posting for the Director of Finance and Administration position, she says she was intrigued. The new role at LLGAMH is a nice combination of her past work in health care and education and she says she is excited to work in a setting that supports those in need. Myra has spent the last 10 years at the Limestone District School Board where she modernized the financial portfolio. She also held several administrative positions at Kingston General Hospital for 17 years, progressing from Financial Analyst to Director.
To begin, Myra will be responsible for several key areas including facilities, transportation, contracts, information technology, administrative support, and finance. First orders of business include some new hires and the annual budget preparation.
When not working, Myra is most likely to be found outside – walking, hiking, and discovering areas she’s never been to before. She is also an avid reader and is about to become a grandmother!
Welcome to LLGAMH Andrew and Myra!
