Meet The Owner
Hi, I'm Carrie Ross.
Over the last thirty years I have had many incredible opportunities to successfully manage, create and lead teams and organizations in the public, private and non-profit sector. Some highlights include winning the Saskatchewan Tourism Business of the Year Award as owner of the Fieldstone Vacation Farm, owner of TourQuest a Saskatchewan receptive tour company promoting “Heartland Canada” to the international travel trade sector, participating in three Saskatchewan Royal Visits through my role as the Executive Director of Government House, leading three organizational change management projects while in executive positions in the Government of Saskatchewan and the honour of being a trustee on the Canadian Museum of Immigration at Pier 21 in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Through my diverse leadership experiences, I have learned that to be a successful leader you have to be an authentic leader.

“My R Connections experience was unlike anything I have experienced to date. As I reflect now, the experience of working with horses was a situation that forces you out of your everyday ways and pushes you to process how you connect. I encourage any leader of any team to consider this opportunity for team development to not only experience something incredibly unique but also learn and grow from what you discover in yourself as the sessions unfold.”
