Raised in New York City, I moved to the Hudson Valley in January of 2013. Though new to the tradition of Oral History, I have always enjoyed listening to people’s stories. As an Ombudsman and Social Worker, I collaborate with residents of long term care facilities, such as Nursing Homes and Adult Homes, to advocate for their rights and work toward ensuring they receive the highest quality of care. I am grateful to Bill Rosecan and Elias Rive for sharing some of their story with me.

Oral history is an iterative process. In keeping with oral history values of anti-fixity, interviewees will have an opportunity to add, annotate and reflect upon their lives and interviews in perpetuity. Talking back to the archive is a form of “shared authority.”
