Meet the Directors

Amanda Bratch BOARD DIRECTOR | 2019 to present

I was born in England and moved to Surrey when I was 7 years old. I met my husband, Parm through mutual friends soon after graduating from the University of BC, where I attained both my undergraduate as well as Master’s degrees. I was proud to help patients as a Clinical Dietitian and Diabetes Educator at Surrey Memorial hospital and have continued my career throughout Western Canada - always covering the Fraser Health Authority. Our twins, who were born at Surrey Memorial Hospital, are forging their own paths locally after recently graduating from university.

AMANDA BRATCH Canmore and Lake Louise Trip (2020)

I love hiking and enjoyed a 3-day trip in the Canmore and Lake Louise area in September 2020.

Wanting to give back to the community that has given me so much, I was delighted to be selected to join the Options’ Board of Directors in 2019. Current Board Chair and longtime friend, Kamaljit Lehal was instrumental in my initial introduction and has been an exceptional mentor during these early board years. The entire board has been very welcoming and supportive.

I serve on the Governance Committee and focus on embodying the values

of Options’ staff members who work endlessly for vulnerable members of our community; supporting them in a safe, consistent and secure manner.
