Fitzpatrick Lentz & Bubba is pleased to announce that Lehigh Valley Children’s Center, Inc. (LVCC) has named Maraleen D. Shields to its Board of Directors. LVCC, a not-for-profit organization, has been providing high quality early education and child care to promote health child development, meet the needs of families, and encourage children to discover the joy of learning since 1970. More than 1,200 children receive early childhood education and child care services each day at LVCC. It is the largest full day, year-round, early education and child care provider in the region, with 25 locations in Lehigh and Northampton Counties.
“I have two children. My son is 7 and my daughter is 1 ½. I returned to work after a 12-week maternity leave with both of my children. I vividly recall the stress of choosing child care and early education program for my children. You desperately want to give your children the best possible start. I am honored to support LVCC’s mission to meet the needs of all children and families in the Lehigh Valley.”
Ms. Shields is a member of FLB’s Healthcare and Litigation & Trial Practice Groups.
