Lorne and Krista live just outside of Hamilton, Ontario and have two beautiful daughters, Kylie and Kendyl, and a sweet Golden Doodle named Rosie.
DIRECTOR OF FINANCE, WATOTO CANADA
Sara Havlik was introduced to the world of accounting at an early age by her father. She used to assist him with his volunteer work of preparing income tax filings for under-resourced families in their community. Sara has worked for years within Finance and attained her accounting professional designations of the Canadian Chartered Professional Accountant (CPA) and Certified General Accountant (CGA). Sara’s financial and accounting expertise, as well as her passion to help the most vulnerable, led her to serve at Watoto Canada as the Director of Finance beginning in 2017. She and her husband, James, have two boys, Stephen and Joshua, and volunteer as a family at their local church in various initiatives and community outreaches.
