Hi Everyone!
My name is Lisa Brown and I’ve been the Executive Director for about a year at the Pregnancy Centre. I was the Assistant Director for 2 years previous to that. I have a Counselling Diploma and about 20 years experience working with families in need. I’ve been married for 17 years and I have 2 teenagers that I love spending time with, as well with their friends! In my spare time I love to sing, play guitar and walk the trails here in the valley! I work at the Pregnancy Care Centre because I believe no one should be alone with their grief and I’ve experienced how powerful a caring community can be in your life!
Come in and say Hi!

My name is Jemima Tabernero, and I am the Assistant Director. I’ve been working at the CVPCC for just over a year, and look forward to what every year brings. I’m fairly new to the Valley! Residing on the island for about two years. I grew up in Winnipeg, Manitoba and graduated from the U of M with a Bachelor of Arts; Major in Psychology. Counselling is a strong passion of mine, as I’ve always been interested in the emotional, behavioral and psychological process of those encountering trauma, grief and most importantly, healing. I enjoy having that space with people, where vulnerable discussion and reflection can happen. To be a part of someone’s growth in any way is a great fulfillment.
