Our Leadership

The Pregnancy Care Centre provides a space for loving, unconditional acceptance. Everyone at the Pregnancy Care Centre is dedicated to helping women and families who experience unexpected pregnancies. As a team, we lead with compassion and acceptance, not judgment.

Meet some of the passionate, caring individuals who make our organization what it is:

Samantha – Client Services Director

Samantha is passionate about serving her community. She goes the extra mile for her clients and her team members. She is as busy as her job is demanding but she does it all with a smile. Sam experienced unexpected pregnancy in her own life. She was a teen mother. Today, as a Certified Doula, she brings a lot of expertise to the centre.

Karen – Abortion Recovery Centre Director

Karen is the Director of the Abortion Recovery Centre. She graduated in 2003 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Sociology from Concordia University of Edmonton. In 2012, Karen received her Death & Grief Certification from the Centre for Loss and Life Transition in Colorado. Karen is passionate about seeing women become emotionally strong so they can live a life of joy, meaning and purpose.

Kim – Barrhead Centre Director

Kim has a big heart for women who need extra help or encouragement. More than 10 years ago Kim’s dream was that the town of Barrhead would have a safe place for those experiencing an unintended pregnancy to turn to. As a result of this dream, Kim played an important role in opening the Barrhead Pregnancy Care Centre. As a woman who has experienced an unexpected pregnancy herself, Kim wanted to help others in a similar situation. Kim is so thrilled to now be in a place where she can use her expertise and experiences to help others.

Alison – Director of Community Education

Alison is dedicated to bringing healthy messages to teens. She is very passionate and creative and has a unique way with the students, which allows them to be themselves and be comfortable talking about sex and relationships with an adult. As a registered nurse with years of experience, Alison speaks health into the lives of students with accuracy and expertise.

Nicole – Centre Coordinator, Edmonton

Nicole was a teen mom herself and has a lot of passion for her work. She is the warm, friendly voice and face that greets visitors and clients when they first arrive at the centre. Nicole is always happy to hear from clients and starts building relationships as soon as they walk through the door. Her cheerfulness is calming and she makes everyone feel loved and supported.

Janet – Client Services Coordinator, Barrhead

Janet’s love for helping others stems from watching her parents pour into everyone around them. Janet was especially impacted when her parents provided shelter and support to a teen during an unexpected pregnancy. This has led Janet to seek a life where she can be encouraging and supportive. She has a deep compassion and love for women and families who are affected by unintended pregnancies.

Wendi – Executive Administrative Assistant

Wendi is a strong, dynamic woman. She has a structure oriented personality that shines through in her administrative skills. Wendi’s passion for the Pregnancy Care Centre’s work is evident and she brings tremendous wisdom to the centre.

Jerry – Accountant

Jerry is a good sport, to work in a centre full of women (he has much practice, as his children are all girls). Jerry is always cheerful, hardworking and keeps our finances in great order. His knowledge in many areas is a huge asset.

Tanya – Marketing Coordinator

Tanya is deeply creative and loves to make things beautiful around her. Experiencing her own unexpected pregnancy was pivotal in helping her grow in empathy towards other women in similar circumstances. A bridge builder, she is also passionate about communication because “our words can either serve to build connections or divide us.”
