About Maureen

I am a people person and spent 5 years as a volunteer on our local ambulance. I very much enjoyed helping the patient and their families during these stressful times. I especially enjoy speaking with the older patients they have so much to share and give back to the community through their life experience. I have two personal achievements that I am proud of: the first raising three boys that have become fine upstanding men and the second I started attending online college in March of 2014 and of course I am continuing with my studies.
