Director of Caregiver Support Services Moves On

Dear MOFAS Families,

It’s time for me to say goodbye. I recently decided to resign from my position as director of caregiver support services at MOFAS to become a full-time parent to my two young sons.

It was both easy and hard to make this decision. It’s the right thing for my family at this time, yet it’s been wonderful to work with all of you and the outstanding staff at MOFAS, not to mention have an opportunity to move the dial on how well systems respond to the needs of people with an FASD and their families.

MOFAS is still deciding on the exact next steps for the caregiver support services team. Meanwhile, you can rest assured that the amazing Roxanne King and Zora Darcourt will remain here to provide support and resources to parents and caregivers of people with an FASD throughout Minnesota. You can reach them at or Sara Messelt, our executive director, can also field any questions at

Thanks for sharing the road with me for a while as you’ve forged ahead on your journeys. Until we meet again, take care of yourselves…and each other!
