Ann Peterson, Executive Director

I was hired as the new Program Director in March, 2016 following an 11 year hiatus from work. During that time, my family moved back to California from New York City and I raised my two boys from youngsters to teenagers. I am happy to be back working!  I have many years experience working with older adults including as a staff psychologist/neuropsychologist at the Jewish Home and Hospital in the Bronx and as an Assistant Clinical Professor at the Mount Sinai Medical Center in Manhattan.  Before my doctoral training in New York,  I worked as an art therapist in San Jose at a sub-acute residental program for older adults.
