This year, we welcome Donna Thomson back as a Director of the Board for one further year. Thomson, who was Board Member from 2014 – 2019, ensures the corporate memory of KBHN’s Board work in Cycle II is not lost and continues as KBHN moves into Cycle III.

Thomson was nominated by fellow Board members to take on the position of Board Vice-Chair. In this role, she will work alongside Kuik in leading the Board into Cycle III and ensuring KBHN realizes its vision.

Thomson brings with her a wealth of experience.  She is a consultant and speaker on issues relating to family caregiving, disability and ageing, and the co-designer and co-instructor of the Family Engagement in Research Certificate Program – a KBHN funded program housed at CanChild in partnership with McMaster University.

Thomson is also an established writer having co-authored “The Unexpected Journey of Caring: The Transformation from Loved One to Caregiver.” She is also the author of “The Four Walls of My Freedom: Lessons I’ve Learned from a Life of Caregiving,” which is a passionate account of raising a son with cerebral palsy. These experiences, coupled with her wealth of knowledge, make Thomson an invaluable asset to the KBHN Board.

“I’m excited to continue this work as the KBHN Board Vice-Chair,” Thomson said. “Especially at the beginning of this new cycle where implementation readiness will be at the forefront of our initiatives.”

Please join us in welcoming Donna Thomson to her new role as Board Vice-Chair.
