Nancy joined the CCE Sullivan team as the Program Coordinator for the Caregiver Resource Center in July 2023 after retiring from a successful career spanning 23 years of service in the public health field, leading Sullivan County through the COVID-19 pandemic as the Public Health Director. She has extensive experience in community health planning, expanding healthcare services through collaboration, coalition building, developing health improvement initiatives, and grant writing. Nancy worked in outpatient primary care as a clinical social worker for ten years early in her career, helping families access health care, home health and mental health services. She led the Sullivan County Rural Health Network for the past decade, and more recently collaborated with CCE Sullivan to expand the mobile farmer’s market to remote areas of the county to improve access to nutritious food for low income families and seniors.
Nancy holds master’s degrees in public health, business administration and social work, and a bachelor’s in psychology. She has her own consulting business and is also an adjunct clinical professor at Binghamton University, where she will be teaching public health courses in the Fall and Spring. Nancy serves on the board for the NYS Rural Health Association and is a lifetime member of the Allan Milk VFW Auxiliary Post #7276. Married to Kirk for 37 years, she is the proud mother of three grown children and six beautiful grandchildren. She lives in Long Eddy on five wooded acres along the Delaware River with her husband and two hilarious and mischievous miniature horses, Silver and Spirit, and their dog Bennie. She loves animals, nature, music, art, poetry and reading, and loves to crochet blankets for her grandchildren.
Nancy is looking forward to helping to strengthen the services that the Caregiver Resource Center offers by connecting with residents, healthcare providers, community organizations, the Office for the Aging, the NYS Department of Health and the Alzheimer’s Association of the Hudson Valley.
