Cormier is the chair of the Amputee Disease-Specific Program Committee and the lead therapy trainer for Medicare scoring guidelines. She has been a major voice in improving employee and patient safety through Encompass Health’s STOP Safe Mobility Program. Beyond her work, as she has been appointed chair of the American Stroke Association Committee of Worcester County, where she spearheaded the first annual Stroke Camp, a celebration for all stroke victims and their families. A mother of two, she has volunteered with the Spencer/East Brookfield Little League for six years and for the Spencer Exchange Club since 2019, raising more than $15,000 through its Taste of the Town fundraiser.
