Ottawa, February 11th, 2015: It is with great sadness that the Parents of Preemies Association founder, Nicole Lyons, has announced her resignation from the organization’s board of directors due to personal reasons. Her involvement in the organization has been a great asset and she will truly be missed.

We are pleased to announce that Julia Shea will be taking the role of Chair of Board Directors. Additionally, Eric Bouliane has been appointed treasurer and will begin operational tasks of the organization’s finances and donations.

We are happy to continue working with existing board members: Amélie Bisson (Director of External Communications), Krista Curtis (Director of Fundraising), Pamela Root (Secretary), Rakhi Radia (Director of Public Outreach), Sara Chenier (Director of Internal Communications and Marketing), and Sheena Leonard (Director of Events).
