Celebrating Our Staff: Wendy McKellar

Every year, SPRA applauds the successes and contributions of our team members who are celebrating major work anniversaries, such as their 5, 10, 15, 20 or 25 years of service. Join us as we applaud the successes of this awesome team member, who offers exceptional leadership skills, perspective and passion for their job. 

Wendy McKellar, Physical Activity and Fitness Consultant

Celebrated 10 years with SPRA in 2020!

Wendy is a passionate recreation professional, whose career, so far, has spanned 35 years. For the past 10 years, we have been fortunate to have Wendy as our Physical Activity and Fitness Consultant. Her experience as a Recreation Director in both Coronach and Outlook have been a positive influence on her work and role with SPRA.

Wendy’s passion for physical activity is apparent! When asked what one of her most memorable moments in working at SPRA has been, she was quick say that it has been experiencing the energy and passion displayed by Fitness Leaders during SaskFit Conferences. Fitness Leaders are committed to be the best they can be to help others be active.

Outside of work, Wendy enjoys spending time with her husband Lyle and their three adult daughters. Camping, spending time on the golf course and gardening are essential pastimes. She is a Board member on the local Community Association and teaches Fitness classes in the community.

What Wendy’s peers said about her:

  • “Stellar McKellar” is the bomb!  A great co-worker and even better person.
  • Three words to describe Wendy: calm, passionate and supportive (if I ever need to bounce an idea off her or get some advice she is always willing to listen and help if she can).
  • Definitely lives a healthy lifestyle that demonstrates her passion.  Always brings a quizzical and reflective approach to her work.
  • She is always willing to help out and teach the rest of us something new. Some days that means she’s unclogging the office toilet, other days she is teaching us how to engage our glutes while walking or letting us know the exact weather and wind conditions.
  • Wendy could easily be a weather anchor – she has an excellent knack for predicting weather!

Congratulations Wendy! We are so thrilled that you are a part of our team and excited to celebrate this milestone with you.
