Board of Directors
Sandi Henderson BACS, CFLE
For over 20 years, Sandi has worked in the human services field with trauma, abuse, suicide victims, and survivors. She has taught college-level programs such as mental health and addictions. As a woman with PMDD, Sandi has been with GAF (then NAPMDD) since it's inception in 2013.
"In this role, I hope to create policies and procedures to ensure the organization is committed to best practices. I am enjoying being a part of our peer support training program for our volunteers and assisting with the training process. My goal is to have a well-run service to provide excellent quality peer support services to women."
With over 13 years of healthcare industry experience, Courtney has a deep passion for treatment protocols that provide support while keeping patients and caregivers well informed and with dignity. As a woman with PMDD, Courtney recently joined GAF in 2017.
"My goal is to help support women in identifying PMDD symptoms as early as possible. However, for those women like myself whose symptoms presented later in life I would like to provide more information and support on viable treatment options that are available sooner in the menopausal transition process. I want women with PMDD as well as those going through peri-menopause to have the necessary tools and resources available to them when selecting their treatment and supporting their recovery."
Kristin Drouin MSW
A licensed social worker, Kristin is passionate about mental health advocacy. Recently named The Luv U Project's uLead Young Professional of the Year, she brings to the board experience as a crisis counselor and as a fundraiser for suicide prevention organizations. Diagnosed at age 21, Kristin is one of the board's newest - and youngest - members.
"My primary goal as a member of the board is to reach girls, teens and young adults with reproductive mood disorders, so that they may know they are not alone. As an individual with lived experience, raising awareness about female suicidal ideation is of equal importance to me."
