Biocitizen is delighted to announce that Sarah Rossmassler is a newly seated board member. Sarah has long supported our Field Environmental Philosophy school and enjoyed having her son, Branch, share some of things he has learned about our biome as they hike and paddle together. Knowing she brings a great love of nature and concern for the health of our communities as we face the challenges global warming present us with, we are looking forward to having her help direct our planning, community outreach and fundraising activities.
Here, in her own words, Sarah describes her background:
I live in Hatfield, MA with my husband Tom and three children. I work as a palliative care nurse practitioner in an academic medical center with patients and their families who have life-limiting diagnoses, and teach other providers about patient-centered approaches to helping people cope with serious illness. To counterbalance the time I spend indoors and within institutional walls, I spend free time with two donkeys, two lively dogs, an obstreperous cat and my family on a small farm on the bank of the glorious Connecticut River. I was introduced to Biocitizen through my son, Branch, who embodies the values and wonder of the Biocitizen philosophy.
