An Additional New Committee Member!

We are very pleased to announce that Sister Constance Veit, lsp has also been appointed to our advisory committee!!! Sister Constance is a student in our Master of Health Administration program. She brings a great deal of experience in healthcare to the committee, but she also brings the student perspective!

Sister Constance Veit discovered her love for the elderly as a high school volunteer with the Little Sisters of the Poor in Latham, NY. After graduating from Boston University’s Sargent College of Allied Health Professions with a B.S. in occupational therapy in 1984, she entered the community and made her profession as a Little Sister in 1987. For the past twenty years she has served in various capacities in the homes for the aged administered by her Congregation throughout the United States and in Paris, France. From 1994–2001 she served as editor of her community’s magazine, Serenity. She then served on the Provincial Council of the Chicago province, which covers homes from Kentucky to California, from 2001–2005. After that she returned to the direct care of the elderly, supervising a 36-bed nursing unit, the activities program and a flourishing youth volunteer program at Our Lady of Hope Residence in Latham, NY. She is currently enrolled in the Masters in Health Care Administration program at St Joseph’s College and in November 2008 returned to her position in the Little Sisters’ Publications Office in Baltimore, MD.

The Little Sisters of the Poor are an international Congregation of women religious serving the needy elderly in 32 countries around the world. The Congregation administers 30 homes in the United States.

Joint us in welcoming Sister Constance!! We are very pleased to have her working with us to ensure our programs are of the highest quality!
