Webster, New York
During College, I spent a summer as a PT aide. After graduating and finding employment in the computer industry in the early 80’s, I decided to add community work to my life. I became educated/certified and volunteered for 5 years as an EMT. I also pursued my interest for Karate and studied for 4 years obtaining my Brown belt. I unfortunately injured my knee sparring and was not able to take my Black belt test. Then came the years of raising kids and being a primary care giver for many family members. I am the daughter of a doctor and nurse so I have been around medicine most of my life. I most recently cared for a family member who suffered a stroke and I was the main advocate/care giver for 5 years. I share this as I had hoped that my background and where I am in my journey in life would be a good pre-cursor to taking this program and bringing it into the community.
