As many of you know, Esteban Lasso, former Executive Director of Transforming Faces, made the difficult personal decision to step down from his role and return to Ecuador to care for his mother who is living with Alzheimer’s disease. The search process to find his replacement is well underway and our Board of Directors are confident they will find a strong, suitable candidate to lead the organization.

In the meantime, TF’s longstanding Program Manager, Laura Lewis-Watts, has been appointed as Interim Executive Director.

Rest assured, Laura will do an exceptional job leading TF during this transitional period, as we work to find the best possible fit for the organization.
