Meet the Staff

Thom Worcester Area Early Intervention is in the business of helping children and their families achieve their goals. We recognize that our success depends on the skills and experience of the people who work for us. Thom Worcester Area employs nearly 50 full and part-time staff members: therapists, teachers, nurses and social workers, many of whom have provided early intervention services in the Worcester area for over 15 years. The staff members of Thom Worcester Area are proud of their tradition of providing high quality EI services to the community.

Meet some of our dedicated staff:

Jeannine is a registered nurse with a bachelors degree in nursing.  She has been on staff at our Worcester program for 6 years.  Jeannine's experiences prior to her time in early intervention include a total of ten years at the UMass Memorial Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) and the NICU at Schneider's Children's Hospital in Long Island.  Jeannine's NICU experiences have prepared her well to support parents of premature or otherwise medically involved babies. Jeannine is generous with her knowledge and dedicated in her efforts to guide parents through their child's first years of life which are crucial to development.  Jeannine is also the proud mother of triplets and has shared her experiences raising multiples with many families in the program.

Barbara is a registered dietitian with nearly 20 years of experience working with children and families in settings that include a Head Start program, the Women, Infants and Children (WIC) program, and a pediatric practice.  Barbara works with parents of children having food allergies, children with food intolerances, children who are picky eaters, as well as providing nutritional education and support such as meal preparation and planning.  Barbara is a mother of four teenagers and spent 3 years as a home child care provider when her children were younger.
