STUDENT STORIES

Focusing on Gerontology

ANA ISABEL SAENZ

AnaAna grew up in a small town in Costa Rica with no electricity, and limited food, safe water, sanitation, and clothing.  After emigrating to the U.S., she studied English and volunteered at the Windsor St. Health Center.  A short time later, she was hired and has worked in a variety of positions with the Cambridge Health Alliance for 35 years.  During that time she battled cancer and served as primary caregiver to her mother throughout her last years. 

These challenges have given her the motivation to further her education and career.  With scholarship assistance from the Friends of the CLC, Ms. Saenz will be entering Bunker Hill Community College to study social services with a concentration in gerontology.
