Ann’s extensive experience as a teacher gives her insight on how to work with high school students. Retirement was not for Ann. When she learned of the RAMP program, she had to be a part it. The RAMP program is for every student. It gives them time, opportunity and growth. It really is something special and I speak to this not only as an employee, but as a mother.
When Jen agreed to move to Upstate New York with her family, she thought that they might move to a place like Saratoga. What she was not expecting was to move from the sandy beaches of New Jersey, to the peaks and valleys of the North Country.

From her picturesque horse farm to her involvement with the Beekmantown PTO, Jen has become ingrained in our community. Pair her community involvement with her many years of staffing experience in the manufacturing industry, and you’ll be pleased to find that Jen has a wealth of valuable advice to offer both RAMP candidates and participants alike.
