FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Steadycare Announces Appointment of Yvonne Zani to Board of Directors for Arc of East Middlesex (EMARC)
Wakefield, Massachusetts (June 27, 2011)
Yvonne Zani, Account Executive for SteadyCare, a leader in awake overnight staff monitoring, has joined the Board of Directors for the Arc of East Middlesex, EMARC, located in Reading, Massachusetts. “Joining the board of directors was my way of giving back to the community, specifically to those with developmental disabilities. Having reconnected with a parent of a child who once attended the respite center I supervised for seven years, I remembered how I cherished those years and yearned to return again—though in a different capacity—this led me to EMARC. It’s a way for me to get involved again, in a more hands-on way,” said Yvonne.
Yvonne joined SteadyCare in 2008 as an account executive, after spending fifteen years in the field of developmental disabilities. As a Licensed Mental Health Counselor, Yvonne worked in human services as a direct support staff person, assistant director in a day habilitation program, a program coordinator for several residential programs and later on to oversee the children’s after school and respite facility mentioned above. In addition to the Board, Yvonne donates her time as a Mentor with Big Brothers Big Sisters (www.bbbs.org), manages and participates in a woman’s softball team sponsored by SteadyCare, and has proudly completed two consecutive runs in the Boston Marathon in 2009 and 2010, as part of the Michael E. Carter Lisnow Respite Center team (www.hopkintonrespite.com).
