As a long time resident of Corte Madera, I am interested in giving back to my community. I taught nursing at the COM from 1980 through 2005. And now, I get to volunteer my efforts to address the growing needs of the older members of the community. Currently I am active on the Health and Nutrition Committee which serves to evaluate the congregate meal sites as well as provide presentations on various topics important to the welfare of the older population. Also I serve with the Age-Friendly Corte Madera group to assess our town and develop innovative projects to better serve our senior citizens.
