Patty Sullivan

Patty Sullivan graduated from the MAS program at the age of 50, and found the program created terrific opportunities for someone transitioning into the field of aging. The expertise of faculty, networking opportunities, and access to the many centers within the Gerontology Institute gave provide a rich understanding of the field. As a staff member at the MA Councils on Aging, she is frequently surprised and delighted to find people across the aging services network who have graduated from the program and have had the same experiences.

Scott Rich Scott Rich says, "After 25 years as a financial services executive, I decided to make a career change helping older adults lead lives worth living.  I can't think of a more meaningful cause to make a positive difference in this world."
