Welcome, Sue Einstein, Hopewell Township’s new Public Health Nurse!
Sue grew up in Bergen County with five siblings and lots of pets. She graduated from the Academy of the Holy Angels in Demarest, and Alfred University in upstate NY, where she earned her nursing degree. After graduation, Sue worked at Columbia Presbyterian Hospital in New York City for 7 years before getting married and moving to CT. She and her husband raised three children and a yellow lab, and Sue continued her nursing career by working as a visiting nurse and a school nurse.
Sue has been working with the Township for 3 months. When she first arrived she was busy immediately at clinics, administering COVID-19 vaccines and helping with contact tracing. Now that things have calmed down with the pandemic, she says she is now “learning about the many ‘hats’ a public health nurse wears, such as school immunization audits, reporting communicable diseases, and how to prevent the spread of certain diseases such as Lyme disease and Hepatitis.” She is looking forward to educational programs, flu clinics, and other health events in the summer and fall.
Sue is delighted to be working at Hopewell Township. She says she joined the team because she “wanted to help mitigate the pandemic by getting shots into arms.” She is enjoying getting to know the Township community, and looks forward to expanding her role in the Health Department.
Dawn Marling, Hopewell Township’s Health Officer, says “With enthusiasm and her warm personality, Sue’s concern for our homebound and vulnerable residents is evident. We are fortunate to have her on our team!”
Sue is a long time resident of Lawrenceville, where she lives with her husband and son. When not at work she enjoys many and varied leisure activities such as bike riding, Pilates, traveling and reading historical fiction. She says she loves Hawaii and can’t wait to get to Alaska!
