Cheryl Charron(MAIS, BA Adv) has worked with adults with disabilities since 1999 in various settings. In 2004, she started working at the FASD Centre at the Regina Community Clinic and has taken to heart the need to develop programming and support for adults impacted by pre-natal alcohol exposure. Her master’s degree was in Integrated Studies in which she pursued adult education, narrative medicine, and writing. Happily she was invited to attend Columbia University Medical Centre as part of her studies and presented at “Narrative Matters Conference” in Toronto. Her BA was a double major, many years ago in Art History and English, in Saskatoon.
Since 2007 she has sat on the Board of Directors of the Regina Community Clinic and enjoys learning more about co-operatives and health services management.
She’s a career gypsy spending the last three decades working in urban and rural settings, in schools, in justice and private financial institutions. Raised in a French-Canadian family she grew up in Ontario, Quebec, and Saskatchewan and sometimes misses the “French connection” that she experienced in Quebec. In her personal life she is a devout reader and lifelong learning with many projects underway, and cares for her family.
Craig Reid (BTh, MALM) comes to the clinic with a variety of transferable skills and a growing desire to walk alongside the men and women in Regina who live with Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder. Drawing on experiences in teaching, program coordinating, and coaching, while incorporating skills gained in conflict management, strategic planning and communication, Craig’s greatest hope is that his daily efforts at the centre will make a positive difference in the lives of the clients. Ever the student, Craig desires to grow as a professional coach while deepening his understanding of this often ‘invisible’ disability.
