    Director of Marketing and Communications
    It is an honor to raise awareness and funds for these rare disorders. I enjoy meeting the families, hearing their stories and then being able to share them with others to increase understanding. Working together, we can achieve great things! I consider the NFED my second family and thank them for letting me share their lives and for all that they teach me.

    Its hard to convey the dedication and compassion that the rest of the staff has for its NFED families. They are a close knit, devoted group whose hearts are all in the right place. With their help, I hope to do some good things during my time with the NFED. I look forward to hearing about all of your great fundraising ideas. I may not always get it right but I’ll keep trying.

    Lea Richardson

    Admininstrative Assistant
    I had the most inspiring, enjoyable, first National Family Conference experience. I met so many great, enthusiastic, loving, caring, dedicated, smiling adults & children whom I am honored to call my new friends. Thank you for letting me be part of the NFED family! I am learning from yesterday, live for today, and hope for tomorrow. When life’s problems seem overwhelming, I look around and see what other people are coping with and decide not to be discouraged. For me, it is important to feed my faith and my fears will starve to death! When life gives me a hundred reasons to cry, I show life that I have a thousand reasons to smile. I don’t wait. I make memories today. I celebrate my life. Thank you for letting me join in celebrating your lives and making new memories!

    Administrative Assistant to Programs
    I am privileged to work for the NFED where everyone is a family. As a new member of the staff, I can’t wait to meet families and hear their stories, which will ultimately help me work with the program team for support, research and treatment of ectodermal dysplasias. I look forward to all the things that our individuals and families that are affected by ectodermal dysplasias will be teaching me in the present and future.
