The Willkommen Committee recently welcomed B the Light’s new Executive Director Laura Doyen. 

Laura is the first official full time employee of B the Light.  She has experience as a legal assistant but wanted to find a job with heart.  She had volunteered through B the Light previously and even co-chaired the B the Light Gala last year.  When the board decided to hire a full-time director, she knew it was the right position for her. 

B the Light is an organization that helps breast cancer survivors in the New Ulm and Mankato area through a variety of different programs.  With 30 women in the New Ulm area diagnosed each year, they have a large population to serve and they want to get the word out about the many ways they help. 

If you’d like to learn more, visit their website www.bthelightinfo.org or call them at 507-276-4122.  They are located at 15 S Minnesota Street in New Ulm.  Congratulations and welcome to Laura Doyen!
