FALLBROOK – On Jan. 27, the Fallbrook Pregnancy Resource Center (FPRC) welcomed new executive director Carolyn Koole. Koole recently moved to Temecula from Grand Rapids, Mich. where she held the position of executive director of the Alpha Women’s Center for seven years. She is married to Dr. Richard Koole, the new senior pastor at Fallbrook First Baptist Church, and the couple has five children and six grandchildren.
Shortly after relocating to Temecula, Koole sought a volunteer role at FPRC and, after realizing her talents, FPRC executive director Claire Cheely developed a plan with Koole to best utilize her strengths.
Cheely has now assumed the position of program services director and Koole will partner with her as executive director. Cheely said she “looks forward to sharing the center’s mission to provide help for those in pregnancy related crises and life-affirming care for the unborn with its board, its volunteers, and staff members Terri Hanner, front office coordinator, and Roberta Smith, nurse manager.”
Koole will be formally introduced to the community at the Fallbrook Pregnancy Resource Center’s annual fundraising banquet on Feb. 22 at Zion Lutheran Church. For information on the event, call (760) 728-4105 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
