She said, “I am passionate about outreach, nutrition and education to support seniors, to keep them healthy and engaged. STC breaks down an important barrier for seniors who wish to keep active, learn and enjoy a healthy meal at our center. I am honored to join the board and look forward to learning as well as contributing to the STC leadership.”
