Dr. Laura Lewis
Dr. Laura is a wife, mother of two boys, a family physician of over twenty years, and now serves as the Executive Director of CAPSS. During the course of her work as a front-line medical doctor she has seen the need for education, support, and practical options for women and men facing unplanned pregnancies.
As part of a team that established a pregnancy care centre in her hometown, she has seen the importance of a local community response to the varied challenges encountered with an unplanned pregnancy. She has also seen the power of compassion, non-judgmental support, and practical help in bringing a message of value and hope to each individual. This experience, along with her combined business and medical degrees, position her to be an effective voice on these important matters.
Dr. Lewis graduated with an Honours Bachelor of Commerce degree from Queen’s University, followed by a medical degree from the University of Western Ontario, and a certificate of family medicine from McMaster University.
