Braintree and Winchendon, MA (June 8, 2018) – Peabody Properties is pleased to announce that Lori Verda, a Resident Service Coordinator/Case Manager with its Group Adult Foster Care sector, has completed her master’s program to earn a Master of Science in Healthcare Administration.
Verda, who holds a Bachelor of Arts in Communication Science and Disorders from the College of Our Lady of the Elms in Chicopee, earned her Master of Science in Healthcare Administration (MHA) from Southern New Hampshire University. She received the Outstanding Student Award for holding the highest GPA in the program – a 4.0.
Verda joined Peabody Properties, Inc. in May of 2014 as a member of the Peabody Resident Services, Inc. (PRSI) Home Care Program, one that is designed to serve residents of affordable housing with the goal of providing support services that help them remain in their own homes.
She lives in Winchendon with her husband and their two daughters and enjoys spending as much free time as possible with her family and Newfoundland Luna and Husky puppy Maple. The family is partial to hiking, camping “and pretty much anything we can do together!” Verda also appreciates time with her sisters, who work for PRSI, as well.
“Lori was able to complete her master’s program with a 4.0 GPA, no less, while continuing to be an excellent case manager and the mother of two small children,” said Aria Zayas, PRSI Home Care Program Compliance Manager. “The entire Peabody Properties community is proud of Lori’s latest achievement!”
