FPWR Canada is growing!
On behalf of the Board of Directors, I am pleased to announce, the appointment of Carole J Barron as Executive Director. Our organization, the Foundation for Prader Willi Research Canada (FPWR Canada) has been growing year after year and we are now in a position to take it to the next level.
We are thrilled to be joined by an experienced and driven professional such as Carole Barron. Carole brings over 30 years executive management experience in the charitable sector with organizations such as the Canadian Council on Rehabilitation and Work (national), Canadian Cancer Society (NL) and Easter Seals/March of Dimes (NL). She is also a registered nurse and has a track record of growing charitable organizations and delivering results.
The Board of Directors is also pleased to welcome, Carole Elkhal as our Community Director. Carole Elkhal is a mom of a daughter with PWS and has been the chair of the Montreal Gala and Conference and the first point of contact for new parents of children who have Prader-Willi Syndrome. Carole comes from a background of delivering results and has been a Project Manager with BMO Financial Group for the past 10 years. In her new position, she will coordinate the “One Small Step” walks and facilitate communications with our parents, families and donors while working closely with our Executive Director.
Michelle Cordeiro, co-founder of FPWR Canada, will continue making sure everything runs smoothly as our Operations Director and working closely with our Executive Director and Community Director. Michelle is a mom of a daughter with PWS, is the chair of our Toronto Gala and has been responsible for just about everything behind the scenes at FPWR Canada since the beginning.
As Chairman, FPWR Canada Board of Directors, it will be my pleasure to introduce them personally during our National Conference being held at the Sheraton Gateway Hotel, Toronto International Airport on May 24 & 25, 2014.
Together we have built an amazing community over the past years and I am excited that we now have the right team in place to help us move faster towards eliminating the challenges of PWS for our children.
