There’s a New Kid on the Block

New Kid, Leslie, on the Left; Joyce on the Right


We have a new Executive Director!

During the Second Annual Volunteer Appreciation Brunch in June, Joyce Bellefeuille introduced Leslie Kirle as the new ED of the Power of Flowers. Leslie is replacing Joyce, founder of the POF, who will now assume an advisory role.

During her brief remarks to the group at the Tewksbury Country Club, Leslie said that she is excited to lead the Power of Flowers Project and help continue its mission of improving the quality of life for people in need.

The Andover resident comes to us with over 25 years of experience in developing and managing innovative health care quality, consumer engagement, and public health initiatives. With her Masters degree in Public Health, Leslie was the Senior Director of Clinical Policy and Patient Advocacy for the Massachusetts Hospital Association for many years. More recently, she provided leadership to a local community, one of sixteen funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation in the United States, to improve the quality of health care.

Please join us in welcoming Leslie Kirle to the Power of Flowers and in wishing both Leslie and Joyce Bellefeuille the best in their new roles.
