    On behalf of the Board of Directors of the Newfoundland and Labrador Organization of Women Entrepreneurs, I would like to congratulate Paula Sheppard on her new position as NLOWE's Executive Director.

     

    Paula has been with the organization since 2004 and has worked closely with the former Executive Director as Assistant Director since 2006. During these years, Paula's contribution has been pivotal, working on initiatives and programming to help women entrepreneurs succeed in the provincial economy.

     

    We look forward to Paula bringing a fresh perspective, yet experienced insight into the needs and challenges of women in business in Newfoundland and Labrador, and we look forward to working with Paula in the her new role.

     

    We wish Paula much luck and offer our best wishes as she guides NLOWE to continued success.

     

    Karen Noftall

    President, Board of Directors
