With immense gratitude, F.E.A.S.T. announces that our founder, Laura Collins Lyster-Mensh, will be moving into a board emeritus position with the organization. Laura will be taking on an advisory role, graciously giving of her experience and perspective to the Board of Directors, our Executive Director, Judy Krasna, and the F.E.A.S.T. community.
Over the past 15 years, Laura has been a key driver of F.E.A.S.T.’s success in meeting the needs of so many families affected by eating disorders. She has been on the Board of Directors since F.E.A.S.T.’s inception and served as Executive Director two separate times. Laura has directly helped untold families, and thousands of others in the eating disorder sector have benefited from her fierce advocacy around caregiver inclusion, evidence-based treatment planning, and compassionate support of caregivers around the globe.
Laura was instrumental in promoting and supporting F.E.A.S.T.’s ongoing transformation into a more professional organization and we are very pleased she will be offering her support to F.E.A.S.T.’s efforts in the future.
We would also like to announce that F.E.A.S.T. has added key volunteer Frank Brockmann to the Board of Directors. Frank has been foundational to supporting F.E.A.S.T.’s complicated technology backbone, putting in endless hours to make sure families could access the services they so desperately need. Frank brings not only his knowledge of the inner workings of the organization and his business acumen, but also the perspective of a parent of a child with an eating disorder.
Congratulations to both Laura and Frank on their new roles!
The F.E.A.S.T. Board of Directors
