Mary Andrada-Henley

Social Service Coordinator, ABHOW
Redlands, CA

What drew you to the field of aging or gerontology?
The appreciation of aging with dignity. I have learned so much from the seniors I work with on a daily basis. Their strong and enduring spirits are to be admired.

What is your specialty or area of interest?
Listening and empowering the female seniors I work with. Many state that they are unheard by family, by the government, and/or social service agencies that are supposed to enhance their living conditions but oftentimes fail to do so. Being a feminist, these are the two of the areas where I can best assist my residents.

How do ASA's resources and education help you with your work?
The updating of services and the educational webinars are great. I have learned so much from the webinars. The yearly conferences teach me so much. They have been such enhancements to my education.
