Director of Health Services

I was born and lived in Bethel, Connecticut until I moved to New Hampshire in 1980. I have two grown children,a son Ben and a daughter Molly. My work experience includes ICU, college health, summer camp ,environmental camp and survival camp , senior mental health, occupational health ,hospice and visiting nurse and brain injury rehabilitation. I believe that working with young people keeps you young at heart . Animal rescue is my life's passion. I enjoy any time spent with my "kids", reading, volunteer work, Sunday drives, suppers with friends and anything chocolate.
What book has made you think the most? On Death and Dying by Elizabeth Kubler Ross
If you could be a superhero, what would you want your superpowers to be? I would have the power to make human beings more like animals in their capacity for unconditional love ,loyalty , intuition and honest responses.
If your life had a theme song, what would it be? Let there be peace on Earth and let it begin with me...........
What teacher has had the most impact on you? How were they special? Carol Brawley, my high school English teacher. She was to the point, approachable and real.
How would your friends describe you in 3 words? Hmmm. Well I can only guess that the words might be independent,humorous and compassionate
You are hosting a dinner party and must invite 3 famous people. Who would you choose and why? My taste in all things is eclectic, so off the top of my head I'd say Fred Rogers (Won't you be my neighbor? ) , Barbara Woodhouse ( a British dog trainer) and Dr. Waynne Dyer ( motivational speaker). I do feel badly leaving out such folks as Walt Disney, Leo Buscaglia, Rosa Parks, and HelenKeller. Anyone altruistic attracts my attention. If there's a lot of food could I invite thirty instead of three?!
If Hollywood made a movie about your life, whom would you like to see play the lead role as you? I think Ellen Degeneres. I really appreciaite her genuine and candid nature.
