More Information

With two graduate business degrees, two startup companies, and several nursing certifications, White has the experience and qualifications for leadership.

No stranger to multitasking, she co-founded a hydration business, ReFresh Me IV, while serving Nichols College as director of undergraduate adult education, partnerships, and competency-based education. While attending grad school, White was the nurse manager at Windham Hospital in Connecticut, managing a staff of more than 50 people and overseeing the daily operations of a 12-bed intensive care unit and a 23-bed medical-surgical and pediatric unit. During her time, the hospital saw increased satisfaction among patients and a jump in efficiency, with overtime dropping 25%.

White still finds time to volunteer with the Dudley-Charlton Regional School District, where she has served on the Mason Road and Dudley Elementary School councils for the past five years, as well as coaching the cheerleading squad. White finds time to volunteer as nurse for the Charlton Baptist Church bible school and fills in as school nurse, when needed, for Dudley-Charlton Public Schools. During the COVID pandemic, White could be found in full personal protective equipment, ensuring people were tested and immunized. White does not fear obstacles and sees life as a journey, a quality she hopes to pass on to her children.

Would you prefer to live on the equator or in Antarctica? Easy, Antarctica, it’s one of the seven continents, and I need to hit all seven by 50. I will say I might move shortly after moving there; I like the heat!

If you gave a keynote at a college graduation, what advice would you give? Find your cheerleader. To be successful, everyone needs a cheerleader. It may not be a parent or teacher; it could be a friend or even a stranger who you met and end up interacting with regularly.
