A New Chapter

I have some news that I am very excited to share!

*Drum-roll please!*

I am now the Executive Director of the Cerebral Palsy Association of Newfoundland and Labrador!

I am so completely humbled and honored to have been chosen to serve such an important role within the Association.

I am up for the challenge and will do everything in my power to advocate for the people in our province living with cerebral palsy. I want to make a difference in the lives of these individuals and their families, and I will do so by ensuring that the mission of the CPANL is fulfilled.

I value all that the CP Association does to raise awareness and funds, and we are going to be stepping it up a notch to increase our presence within the community.

We will be launching a new website very soon, and we have several events planned for the coming months. Stay tuned for updates on all of that!

As much as I am excited about the potential that exists within this new role, I am equally excited to work with so many other families to create the culture that we dream of - one that celebrates differences.  My heart is twisting in so many beautiful ways just thinking about all that we can do, all that we can accomplish, if we work together.

In a couple of weeks, I will be attending the CP in Motion Conference and Workshop at the IWK Health Centre in Halifax, NS.  I am looking forward to two full days of information sharing and connecting with others who care for individuals with CP, whether they be family members or health care professionals.

I am interested on a personal level to learn about recent advances in enhancing the quality of life for children with cerebral palsy and developmental disabilities. I am also excited to connect with other professionals and organizations to see what information I can bring back to our province.

I am so proud to be able to represent the CP Association of Newfoundland and Labrador and to advance their mission to create a life without limits for people with cerebral palsy!

Finally, no blog post is complete without a photo, so here is one of my favorites of my sweet boy. Brennen, this is all for you. All of my strength, determination, love and light comes from you, and for that I thank you. xo
