Originally from Maryland, I am happy to call New Fairfield my home. I have one son living here in CT and one still residing in MD. I was employed for nearly 20 years in various positions at Green Chimneys School in Brewster, NY. While there, I divided my years between being a Speech and Language Tutor, to High School Science Teacher Assistant to Teacher Assistant in a classroom for children with Autism. I even got heavily involved in shark conservation, creating a group called the Shark Finatics! We were honored as Oceana’s Junior Ocean Heroes, as we made friends around the world.
Recently retired from the classroom, I continue to work at the Green Chimney’s Country Store at Boni Bel. This is a vocational site for students of the school who might not be college bound but are in need of employable skills. I help train the students in retail skills, such as: customer service, register, inventory, receiving shipments, etc. It’s a wonderful little store giving students the opportunity to gain retail experience.
Patricia opened the doors to Acupuncture Works at its present location in 2014. When the position came open for front desk help in 2015, I made the move. I have very much enjoyed meeting many wonderful people of this town as well as many others who travel to our clinic for treatment. The wonderfully calm atmosphere at Acupuncture Works makes my position as Office Manager seem like a gift!
