Sue Gigliotti

This month, we meet Sue Gigliotti (she/her), Community Health Worker at the Newmarket, NH center. 

Tell us a little about yourself. Where did you grow up? How did you get here?

I grew up in Portsmouth, NH, before it was a popular tourist town and I graduated from the University of New Hampshire in Durham, NH with a degree in Political Science. Later, my husband and I moved to Hampton, NH, and raised our two boys there. One lives in Boston, MA, and the other will graduate from the University of New Hampshire in May.

After graduation, I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do professionally. I worked at the Key Program in Dover, NH which works with troubled teens. When a position was available at the WIC Program, I knew I had found my calling. I served as their Family Services Coordinator for 23 years. Then I worked for two years as the Homeless Outreach Worker for Southern NH Services. I was looking for a change and found the position at Lamprey Health Care as a Community Health Worker at the Raymond center in 2015. Today I primarily work in the Newmarket center.

What do you like most about working at Lamprey Health Care?

I believe everyone should have access to healthcare, and I like that we turn away no one for lack of insurance. And, my office mates are a lot of fun!

Did you always want to work in healthcare? What would you do if you weren’t doing this?

I stumbled upon working in healthcare. If I hadn’t, I would have gone into counseling. Today, I would answer that I would be retired or semi-retired and try to have a garden in my yard. I have a brown thumb!

What are some of your favorite things to do outside of work?

I really love music and like to go to concerts with friends. I also like to kayak in warm weather.

What advice would you give to others to be healthy?

I have “learned” to love water; hydrate, Hydrate, HYDRATE!
