Meet Our Team
David Daughton, Exective Director
I am a firm believer in the power of information to transform lives in positive ways and I relish the opportunity to work with a community-led Board toward fostering a Just Society. I have extensive experience in community-based economic development for the co-operative sector and I worked for many years with a consulting business, "Healthy Community Partners", focusing on the connection between personal and planetary health issues. J’ai participé aux Alliances de recherche universités-communautés pour mieux comprendre la sécurité alimentaire et l’économie sociale. I was the Recipient of the Quebec-Labrador Foundation’s “Caring for the Earth Award” in 2000 and of the Canadian Worker Co-operative Federation’s “Worker Co-op Merit Award” in 2009. I love Art, Nature, Lifelong Learning, and living with my family, on the riverbank, in Mermaid.
Kelly Robinson, Program Coordinator
My passion and background are in social justice issues, including sexual violence, family violence, youth empowerment, and the advocacy and support of persons with intellectual disabilities. I have a Masters degree in Theory, Culture & Politics, and a B.Sc., Hons. in Psychology. I am currently serving on the Board of Directors of the PEI Rape & Sexual Assault Centre and as a Council member of the PEI Advisory Council on the Status of Women.
I live in Stratford, but have recently lived in Peterborough, Fredericton, and I was born in Corner Brook. My "children" are two exceptional cats, Rigel and Silas, and a bossy little budgie named Po.
Noreen MacInnis, Office Assistant
I have lived in Charlottetown, PE all my life. My son, Mark, is attending UPEI. I've been with Community Legal Information Association for 10 years.
I was born in Iran in 1987 and finished my high school in Tehran. I then moved to Armenia in 2003 to study at Yerevan University in Information Systems (IS). I came back to Iran in 2007 and transferred my credits to Tehran University to study Business Management. I moved to Malaysia to finish my studies at Kuala Lumpur University in Business Enterpreneurship Development. I started at CLIA in 2012 and I am still here.
I live in Charlottetown with my parents and sister.
I am very happy to work at this organization. We have a great and wonderful team here to help improve access to justice on PEI. I hope my work helps the Island community.
I love cars, learning, playing bass guitar sometimes, travelling, cooking and baking bread.
I was born in Nova Scotia many decades ago & came to PEI in 1970. I graduated from UPEI in Psychology (1973) and have taken lots of other training in various areas since then. I started at CLIA on a project in 1994 and I am still here.
I live in the Bonshaw hills on St. Catherine's Road with my husband of 30+ years, several four-legged family members and whatever assortment of the 3 offspring (all grown up) in residence at the time.
My love for, and commitment to, CLIA has never wavered in the past 16 years and I am very proud and happy to work with this organization. I think we have a wonderful team that can help to improve access to justice for our whole Island community.
I am thrilled to be working with such dedicated co-workers here at Community Legal Information Association. After a career in retail and banking I returned to school in 2007, after a ten year break (BA 97), to do my social worker degree at the University of Victoria. When I was a social work intern at the Justice Resource Service (then Office of the Attorney General) I had an opportunity to work with CLIA on some projects and I always admired their commitment to their clients and their community. So after a contract at the PEIANC finished, I was so glad to be able to come back and work in the justice field with such a community- oriented non-profit.
In my work as program assistant I help out on the Legal Information Line, the Lawyer Referral Service, and I facilitate our new course offering, “Best Interests of the Children in Custody and Access”. During my time at CLIA I hope that I can help bring about positive change in our Island Community.
I live in Suffolk with my 12 year old son, my dog and my extended family. Baldhor, “the Mighty” seen with me is my dog at my second home in Dallas that I share with my husband.
