Led by Carolyn Fowler and Jenny Tesler, this dynamic team of two will guide and support families across the Rett Syndrome community while working to do more for everyone impacted by Rett Syndrome. They will focus on the vital education, information and resources our families need to actively live life with Rett while sharing important updates across the community.
Carolyn joins us from the east coast, based in the Washington, D.C. area. She and her husband Stephen have three beautiful children, Evelyn (who has Rett Syndrome), son Ellis and newest addition, son Merrit. Carolyn’s daughter Evelyn (evelynsvoice.com) was diagnosed with Rett a little over a year ago, and she shares, “I’ve been in the field of childcare for 15 years as a support for children of all abilities and their families. I want our Rett Syndrome families to know they are not alone. We are here at GP2C, ready to help, support and fight together just as they were for Stephen and I.”
Jenny hails from the west coast, based in Los Angeles, CA, with her husband A.J. and their two children. Jenny is a writer, blogger and active advocate for her daughter Magnolia living with Rett Syndrome. Jenny spent 10 years in special events and marketing prior to her work today. There’s no doubt you’ll find her somewhere in the Rett Syndrome community sharing their family’s life adventures with Rett at magnoliashope.com. Jenny shares, “The Girl Power 2 Cure community has been a life line to our family and others living with Rett. Their focus on education, communication and living life with Rett is truly inspiring. I am ecstatic to join such a powerful team dedicated to doing so much for all of us on this journey.”
Carolyn and Jenny will work together supporting the broader Rett Syndrome community. In this role, they will actively share relevant, impactful ideas, stories and more to help families live quality lives while introducing new and innovative information and resources families need to Rise Above Rett.
Roger Brooks, COO shares,
“At GP2C and across our brands, we want to ensure every family and professional has the up-to-date information they need to make great decisions about caring for and educating children with Rett Syndrome. So much about our Rett community has changed. We want families to experience quality lives with their kids, exploring innovative health solutions and bringing awareness to communities about all our children CAN do. Our kids are smart. Our families are resourceful, and we want to reflect these attributes with a team focused on encouraging and inspiring them to reach beyond their dreams both for today and for tomorrow.”
Please join us in welcoming these two wonderful additions to the GP2C family! We look forward to the impact they will make supporting families and advocating on behalf of everyone affected by Rett Syndrome.
