The Team

Get to know our Leadership Team!

Cara Bradley – Director, Heart Home Network

I have spent my human services career in the non-profit sector preceded by a strong background in business. I have always had a strong commitment to this work, but my passion for it grew exponentially during my time working the homeless sector with a primary focus on addictions and mental health. It was during this time that the importance of addressing the root causes of trauma, and its lifelong impacts, became apparent to me and I transitioned into the domestic violence sector.   

I am dedicated to supporting our agency in creating much needed program offerings that work to address violence as the root of poverty and addiction across the lifespan.  

I am always seeking creative solutions to address client needs and advocated for the successful implementation of an accredited facility dog program to support the important work at the HHN.  

In my free time, I can usually be found by a body of water or in the woods seeking solace in the natural beauty and abundance of our province.

Jasmin Maryniak – Manager, Operations and Client Support 

I have been with Heart Home Network since January 2018 and have taken on many roles during my employment. The energetic and enthusiastic Operations and Client Support team can be seen supporting front desk functions, assisting participants with various tasks, overall unit repairs and building cleanliness, as well as supporting move-ins, move-outs, and other landlord functions.  

Krista Elliott – Manager, Child Development 

I have been with Heart Home Network (HHN) since January 2023. I started as a Case Manager for the Stabilization program and moved into the Manager of Child Development Role in June, 2023. Prior to working at HHN, I have worked as a Social Worker in the non-profit sector for the last 15 years.

My passion for supporting children and families has always been rooted in the immense strength, determination, and power that they have. It is an immense privilege to walk along side moms and their children as they find safety and continue to fight incredible battles to protect themselves and their children.

In my free time, my partner and I spend time adventuring with our dogs and love to explore the mountains and lakes nearby.
