HAGERSTOWN ? Lindsay Anderson's first experience with a hospice organization was in Florida and involved her grandfather.
"It was a very positive experience," both for her grandfather and for her, Anderson said.
Anderson, 25, brings that strong foundation with her as she prepares to take on the job of volunteer services coordinator at Hospice of Washington County Inc.
A resident of Frederick County, Anderson previously worked at a psychiatric rehabilitation center as supervisor of residential programs.
"I supervised the staff in that job," Anderson said.
While still a student at James Madison University, Anderson worked for two years as a community service coordinator, placing volunteers where needed.
She graduated from James Madison with a bachelor of science degree in psychology.
Anderson will be learning the ropes at Hospice of Washington County from her predecessor, Mary Foor, who is retiring after nearly 16 years.
