Beyond her commitment to improving public education, Mildred is an engaged professional in Western Massachusetts. Mildred has served as a Licensed Practical Nurse for the past 23 years. As an LPN, she has held various health care roles which have included management, quality assurance and teaching. She currently works as a Visiting Nurse, case managing and caring for clients in the community. Her role as a Visiting Nurse has been educating clients on disease process and medication management to ensure that they continue to live lives productively in the comfort of their homes. She teaches and encourages clients to become self-advocates of their health and maintenance. She graduated from the LPN to RN Program at Holyoke Community College in May of 2021. From there, Mildred attended American International College and received her Baccalaureate Degree in Nursing in December of 2022. Her focus is on mental health as it is a growing concern in both adults and children.

Mildred is the mother of five children ranging in ages from 17-31. She has learned resiliency, perseverance, and grit as she has worked to support her own children who suffer from mental health illness. She has seen firsthand the years of struggles and barriers placed before them. She has spent countless hours learning about and advocating for the issues that faced her children. Mildred has taken the commitment that she had for her own children’s success and worked hard to help other families that were struggling. When she is confronted with a problem or new issue as a school committee member, she works to ensure that students receive the supports they need in the educational setting. Mildred understands the role of a “Mom” in an IEP meeting and has advocated to ensure that the role of the parent is as important and valuable as that of the professional.
