Trilby Henderson

Past President

After nearly a decade of work as an editor and communications professional with Farm Credit Canada, Trilby Henderson now works in risk management for the organization. Trilby holds a BA in Journalism from the University of Regina. Before joining FCC, she spent several years providing communications expertise to a broad span of organizations in both the public and private sector, both as an in-house communications specialist and freelance writer and editor.

Trilby is passionate about communications. When she’s not geeking out on how to create engaging content, digging into communications strategy and measurement, or championing the principles of plain language, you’ll find her at the hockey rink cheering on one of her three kids, or camped out at the lake during the summer.

Lyne Robichaud

Vice-President, Professional Development

Lyne has been working in public affairs for over 12 years. Her work is anchored in communications, but she also has extensive experience in media, government, and public relations. She currently manages the corporate communications team at Farm Credit Canada.

While Lyne has spent the last decade creating, managing, and activating national public relations campaigns, she is also highly skilled at strategic communications. She started her career as a national press secretary on Parliament Hill for the Office of the Official Opposition in Ottawa, and later developed a passion for agriculture and agri-food.

Lyne has a Bachelor’s degree in Journalism/Communications from l’Université de Moncton and a Master’s Degree in Political Studies from the University of Ottawa. She is also a past board member of the Canadian Public Relations Society – Ottawa/Gatineau chapter.

During her time off, you will likely find her with a book in one hand and a coffee in the other, or on a road trip with her two young boys and her husband.

Candace Kyrzyk

Vice-President, Professional Development

When it comes to communications and professional development, Candace is very well versed. She’s held a myriad of communications positions throughout her career, including work in graphic design, bookkeeping, and social media management. She’s currently the Director Client Service at Brown Communications Group, where she manages campaigns for clients in both private and public sectors.

A life-long learner, Candace recently completed a certificate in Indigenous Canada from the University of Alberta. She’s also completed her IAP2 Foundations in Public Participation course, which fuels her passion for energized and engaging communications.

Don’t be surprised to find Candace at your local Starbucks or sushi spot. Outside the office, this dog mom of two loves camping, road tripping, conquering new Peloton app workouts, and cheering on sports teams from her hometown of Winnipeg.

Lisa Triantafyllou

Vice-President, Membership & Communications

Lisa Triantafyllou is passionate about her new Communications Consultant role at the Saskatchewan Cancer Agency (SCA). She is excited to join their talented and dedicated team of professionals, who work hard every day to improve the quality of cancer care for people in her home province.

Before joining the SCA, Lisa worked at eHealth Saskatchewan for seven years, primarily, as their Senior Communications Consultant. She was an integral part of many meaningful and impactful projects for the health system, including MySaskHealthRecord, birth bundling, health card renewal, annual reports, and their website redesign.

Before taking a leap into Corporate Communications, Lisa was as a Mobile Journalist for Sun News Network. As the national network's only correspondent in Saskatchewan, she loved telling stories from a prairie perspective. Lisa was responsible for the reporting, research, videography, interviewing, writing and editing of each story.

Lisa is a proud member of the International Association of Business Communicators (IABC) and new board member of Membership and Communications for the Regina IABC Chapter. She is passionate about all things communications, including reading, writing, editing, planning and strategy, marketing, analytics, photography, videography and social media.

Outside of work, you will likely find Lisa and her husband, Jamie, at a park or doing something adventurous with her two wild and adorable little boys, Xander and Cruz.

A good TV show paired with popcorn and an oaky Chardonnay in the proper wine glass are Paula's true pleasures in life.
