Rosalind Harris is the administrative manager at RVNA. This means that she brings order, process, pragmatism — and often a healthy dose of humor and fun — to the organization, building and the team. Ros has worked at RVNA for nearly 10 years … but did she ever aspire to be a nurse herself? Read on and find out.
Where did you grow up and where do you reside now? I grew up in Greenwich, lived in Ridgefield for 20 years, and now live in Danbury.
What brought you to RVNA? I learned of the opportunity at RVNA and it sounded like a great organization to be involved with. It still is.
What is your role at RVNA? I’m the administrative manager and oversee contracts, office management, and assist Theresa. (That’s Theresa Santoro, President and CEO, incidentally.)
How long have you worked at RVNA? The time has flown by, but I will have been at RVNA 10 years this summer.
What is your favorite part of your job? I love working with our staff and helping to make the office run as smoothly as possible.
Did you ever consider being a nurse? Oh no. I have the greatest admiration for all of our clinicians, but I don’t think I could inject an orange!
What do you love to do when you’re not working? I’m am outdoor person so I love to hike, ski, garden and kayak. I’m in a fun book group too and love going to my second home in Maine.
What is your hidden talent? I don’t think I have any. (Editor’s note: Not true) I was a figure skater when I was young, so I can still get around pretty well on my skates.
What would you do if you won the lottery? Set up a charitable foundation and help RVNA and other worthy causes. I’d probably travel too.
Do you have a favorite RVNA moment or story? I do have a funny story, but I don’t want to share it on the world wide web. Remind me to tell it to you some time!
