FEMINIST FRIDAY – PEGGY KULMIE

TODAY I WOULD LIKE TO INTRODUCE YOU TO A WOMAN WHO I HAVE HAD THE HONOR TO KNOW PERSONALLY AND PROFESSIONALLY FOR 14 YEARS PEGGY KULMIE.

Peggy is a CNA at a health care center in Southern New Jersey.  I was first introduced to Peggy when my son, Andrew, became a resident at that health care center.

Andrew arrived there in a coma, on oxygen and on a feeding tube.  God assigned to Andrew his own personal angel who goes by the name of Peggy.  Peggy has tirelessly taken care of Andrew and never tired of moving him toward some form of communication and recovery.  Because of her faith in God and in Andrew, today Andrew communicates on a very limited basis with Peggy, sits up in a chair every day, no longer has a tracheostomy, and eats by mouth.

Peggy has worked as a CNA at this health care center for over 25 years.  If you ever have visited health care centers in general and dementia floors in particular you can appreciate what a huge commitment to caregiving this is.  I have watched Peggy countless times treat the residents with the upmost respect and greatest kindness in the face of their confusion and sometimes nastiness caused by their dementia.

In addition fulfilling her career in such a remarkably positive manner, Peggy raised two beautiful daughters as a single parent.  She has tirelessly taken care of her extended family – aunts, uncles, nieces and nephews, whenever they have called upon her for assistance.  She is an active member of her church and spends time every week and every summer in service to the mission of the church.
