It’s funny the journey life takes us on. One minute I’m working hard for a national charity, the next, a world-wide virus wipes out all fundraising plans and I’m out of a job. Permanently. Thank you Covid.
But as they say, when one door closes, another opens and luckily for me, I feel like the door has been flung open and I have been welcomed home.
My name is Renná Bruce Paonne and I am honoured to be joining the team at The Learning Disabilities Association of Wellington County as Executive Director. I bring to the position a background in communications, sales, promotions and event planning as well as charity program coordination.
I am also very familiar with life as a parent of a child who has learning disabilities. Our son was diagnosed at a young age with Autism and in later years with ADHD. The challenges and difficulties that a family faces are familiar territory for my husband and I. We have worked hard to find support, researching information, tools and strategies, navigating the school system, IEPs, IPRC and transitions and just trying to find the best ways to help our son. Ways that work for him. Because through all this, we discovered that everyone learns differently.
I look forward to helping other families on their journey and sharing experiences together. Please feel free to reach out to me at email@example.com or check out our website and services at https://ldawc.ca/ . I look forward to connecting.
