Volunteer Coordinator

“I enjoy the challenge of matching a patient to the right volunteer in his or her community – somebody who can engage those patients in their life stories, help them reminisce about their achievements, and share in similar skills and interests. Whether it is their ability to speak Russian or Spanish, serving in the military, or playing with therapy dogs, our patients and volunteers form special bonds.”

  • Shaun, Volunteer Coordinator
