Jeff Boston, Psy D., R.N.
Founder of Boston Health Care Systems, Inc. and Haven Chemical Dependency, Inc. Haitian children are born into a world a hundred times harsher than the one I was born into. Therefore, much is required of me to give and to work to make that better.
Michele Boston, J.D., M.S.W.
Founder and Executive Director
Former CEO Boston Health Care Systems, Inc. Haiti is hard. I did not choose Haiti. It chose me. This being so, when I think of the miracles that happen at Klinik Timoun Nou Yo each and every day, I am reminded that whoever has chosen… It be the right choice for me.
Board of Directors
Cheri Rolnick, PhD, MPH
Former Associate Director of Research for the Health-Partners Institute for Education and Research. Having worked on health-related issues for women and children throughout my career, the interests of NTFP were a wonderful match with my background. Also my daughter-in-law’s family is from Haiti, which is giving me a link to her roots. It is a privilege to serve on the Board.
Co-owner and President of Woodlake Medical Management, Inc., former teacher. I have combined my love for travel with a passion to make a difference, particularly in finding ways to enable children in developing countries to improve their lives through health and nutrition. Klinik Timoun Nou Yo provides access to excellent health care and nutrition clinics for children in the southern region of Haiti. I feel blessed to be a part of this amazing organization.
Johan Eriksson, CFP
Financial Advisor and Associate Vice President, Morgan Stanley. I have known the Boston family for a number of years and have been very impressed with the work they have done in Haiti. I am very excited to now be on the board of No Time for Poverty to further help with their cause.
Peter J. Kordell
Having lived and built a business in Haiti many years ago and having served on Mount Sinai Hospital’s board of governors for 10 years, I hope I was able to contribute some insights into developing and building our pediatric hospital in Port Salut Haiti. To see the fantastic impact and results Klinik Timoun Nou Yo has had on this remote Haitian community is very gratifying. I am proud to be a part of this noble journey.
Having worked for Michele and Jeff in the past and also volunteering in multiple capacities for No Time For Poverty, I have been moved and motivated to try and do more. No Time For Poverty is the perfect way for me to join my love of service and children. I’m excited to join the No Time For Poverty board and to continue to serve the people of Haiti.
Owner, producer, and director of Studio Caswell, a commercial photography business. Prior to and since joining the board I have worked on various projects for NTFP and am very supportive of the NTFP mission. I am extremely impressed with how the clinic is making a big difference in so many children’s lives.
I have been a free lance video producer/director for twenty years. I have been to Haiti three times with No Time For Poverty and filmed the last two NTFP gala videos. I am very familiar with Klinik Timoun Nou Yo, its operations, and its mission. I look forward to providing assistance to NTFP for many years to come.

My career path has taken me from the classroom as a student teacher, to a small technology company, to corporate America and into non-profit leadership. These days you’ll find me studying at the University of Southern California Price School of Public Policy, working with students and faculty located all around the world. Having worked and volunteered with a number of child-centered organizations and being interested in international work, being on the board of No Time For Poverty seems a perfect fit!
