AOMBT Trustees

April 1, 2018 | Filed under Public.

The AOM Benefits Trust is pleased to announce that Krista Fairles was acclaimed as a Trustee following an open nominations process in February. Krista is a recent MEP graduate from Ryerson University with 30 years of experience in finance. Before entering midwifery, Krista trained and worked as a molecular biologist at the Universities of Guelph and Calgary, giving her a strong foundation in analytical thinking that she applies to both midwifery and finance. Krista is completing her New Registrant year at Midwifery Care of North Don River Valley, where there is a strong commitment to sharing time and skills with the  broader community. 

We also wish a fond farewell to our departing Trustee, Otis Kryzanauskas. Otis joined the Trust in 2015, bringing with him a keen interest in learning the full scope of the Trustee role. Otis made valuable contributions to the sustainability of midwifery both as a Trustee and as a member of the Finance & Audit  Committee. Thank you Otis!  You can find information about our current Trustees, learn more about  what they do and what it’s like to be a Trustee, at midwivesbenefits.ca/governance
