As a part-time caregiver of her parents - one of whom suffers from dementia - Susan sees first hand the impact of loneliness and isolation on older adults. She believes that maintaining friendships and remaining socially involved are vital to the physical and mental well-being of all, especially as we get into our older adult years.
After many years working as a financial analyst in the insurance industry, Susan now enjoys working part-time in the Connecticut Children’s Medical Center gift shop, a nonprofit organization. Susan has been involved in several other nonprofit organizations, including serving for many years as Chair of the Outreach Committee of the “Friends of CCMC”. In addition, she has served for 12 years as a board member of the Union Street Tavern Trot, a nonprofit that raises funds for Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation.
Susan earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration/Accounting from the University of St. Joseph.

Sylvia is excited to be the Assistant Program Manager for our Tea @ 3 Community. Sylvia is an actuary with a successful career in the health insurance industry. In her most recent role as Executive Director of Medical Economics at a major insurance company, she led a team responsible for analyzing medical cost trends.
Sylvia is interested in the social determinants of health which combine her background in healthcare analytics with her concern for people. The Tea @ 3 Community's mission to address loneliness through tea and friendship is a perfect blend of her passions and a joyful way to impact people’s lives.
Sylvia earned a Bachelor’s degree in Mathematics from the University of Richmond and is a Fellow in the Society of Actuaries. She is currently pursuing a Graduate Certificate in Nonprofit Management at the University of Connecticut. And as a recent graduate of UConn’s Encore!CT program (bridging corporate professionals to the nonprofit sector), Sylvia is using her business and leadership experience and her analytical skills to help local nonprofits achieve their missions via board service and project consulting work.
Sylvia’s favorite tea is Earl Grey Crème, which she enjoys while reading, after yoga, or – even better – while chatting with a friend.
Siri is a student at Amherst College, class of ’24, studying Neuroscience and Economics. She joined the For All Ages team in 2021 as the organization’s first university Campus Connector. Siri believes For All Ages’ mission of reducing loneliness through intergenerational connections is a very important one. Especially in the pandemic, isolation was a real and debilitating issue for many, and the programs For All Ages has help combat this.
As For All Ages' university Campus Connector Coordinator, Siri is looking forward to helping expand the Campus Connector role to other campuses, further reaching the younger generation and fostering intergenerational connectivity through the Tea @ 3 program.
