GMSS is very excited to welcome two new board members. It has been over five years since we have had the opportunity to bring new members to the board.
Heidi Baker: She is from the Northeast Kingdom and works for the Council on Aging in St. Johnsbury as a case manager. She is a rising star in elder care services, and has worked with GMSS in the past as we have been making inroads in the NEK with our Adult Family Care (AFC) program. She will also be a good representative of that geographic area, where we currently serve over forty clients.
Steve Peterson: He is the Security Coordinator at Tetra Tech ARD out of Burlington. Compassionate and pragmatic, Steve has extensive experience in government, nonprofit, and private sector work, with strengths in business development and finance. That Steve wants to bring his expertise to GMSS is a great reflection on the positive and person-centered direction we are heading. We also have a few clients in the Northwestern part of the state, and it will be useful to have board representation from that area.
