Joan brings an interesting range of talents and experiences to the position of administrator.

Most recently, she completed the Christian Science Nursing IV class at Tenacre. Over the years, she has served in different capacities as a Christian Science nurse and this most recent course work consolidates her experiences.

Underscoring her devotion to Christian Science and its healing mission, Joan served as the Christian Science Committee on Publication for New York State between 1999 and 2005.

An honors graduate of Yale University, she is a correspondent for “The Christian Science Monitor” and has worked previously as a journalist for other publications as well as the communications coordinator for Pace Law School in New York.

Ester started her Christian Science Nurses’ Training at Fern Lodge and then received advance training at Glenmont. She has been Journal-listed since 2013.

High Ridge House, says Ester, “is a new step of progress in spiritual growth for my Christian Science nursing ministry. It’s an opportunity to grow more and inspire others.”

In additional to her love for Christian Science nursing, Ester loves to cook, something that’s benefiting all of us at High Ridge House.
