Brian was first introduced to the Pregnancy Resource Center (PRC) ministry through his good friend and Co-Founder Bob Holbrook. Bob came to Brian in early 1999 with a need to help a local PRC in the Dallas area streamline the process of recording, tracking and reporting services provided to clients. After hearing about the life affirming services PRCs provide to men and woman around the globe facing unplanned pregnancies, Brian was eager to help out. Shortly after starting work on the project, it became clear that many centers had the same need as the Dallas center. In the fall of 1999, was formed and the first version CenterPiece was released soon after. Today, through God’s grace, our team continues to grow serving over a thousand PRC offices world wide. Every day Brian feels blessed to work with such a great team and to serve our Lord through by providing such a critical service to life affirming PRCs.

Brian and his wife Paula (yes, Paula Paul) live in Southlake, TX with their two daughters Regan and Peyton. When not working, Brian enjoys spending time with family and friends, being a volleyball Dad, and playing golf.

Ashleigh Guilmette

Account Manager

Ashleigh’s passion for the PRC ministry was sparked as a child through her Grandmother who served as a director at their local Pregnancy center for many years. At the age of 18 she began serving at the same center; first as a consultant, then as a receptionist, and finally as an Administrative Assistant. She first became familiar with CenterPiece in 2005 when moving their center from an outdated manual tracking program to CenterPiece. She found this not only streamlined the process of data entry, but saved subsequent time, allowing her to begin seeing walk-in clients again. Ashleigh is dedicated to the calling Christ has placed upon her heart for this ministry and honored to serve eKYROS centers.

She lives in the Yakima Valley of Washington state and joined the eKYROS team in 2009 after resigning from her center. Ashleigh enjoys spending time with family and friends, reading, traveling, and playing board games.


Dolores Crawford

Account Manager

Dolores believes that God had a plan and calling on her life when she was in the womb of her Birthmother who bravely chose adoption for her as a single teenage mother. Dolores went on to experience being a single teenage mom herself and knows how different things would have been with the support of a pregnancy center for guidance.

When her church held a LIFE event in 2006, Dolores immediately began asking God where she could use her ashes for His glory and He led her to the local Pregnancy Center where she began volunteering. She was soon hired on full time as a client advocate and quickly moved into the role of Medical Services Coordinator. As the clinic grew, Dolores was instrumental in creating, developing and implementing “Support Link” as the centers solution to fostering and maintaining relationships with the clients while educating and supporting them throughout pregnancy and parenting. In supporting clients, Dolores had the highest changed mind rate for adoption at her center. She resigned from her current position to join the team in 2015 and is certain that the calling on her life to support all aspects of the pregnancy centers will be fulfilled in this new role.

Dolores is a native of Abilene Texas, where she resides with her husband, Kevin and youngest of 3 daughters, Lindsey. She has one precious grandson and another on the way in April ’15. In her spare time she enjoys cooking for others, traveling, interior decorating and shopping.
