Employer: Mystic Valley Elder Services, Malden
Job: Case worker
I work with the elderly in Reading, North Reading, and Malden, and never fail to be amazed by the depth of their personal history, creativity, wisdom, and friendship. I’m there to make sure they receive whatever they need, whether it’s a home-delivered meal or a visit to the doctor. I think seniors should be able to live independently in their own homes and communities as long as theycan. It enhances their dignityand well-being.
Fun fact: I’ve been boxing for about a year — I love it. I don’t know if I could actually spar with anyone, but I do like hitting the heavy bag — it’s a good stress release.
