The Office of Total Rewards presents The Retiree Spotlight! Staying connected to our University of Rochester retirees is important to us. To show how much we appreciate them and their years of dedication to the University, we’ve given our retirees the opportunity to tell us who they are, how long they’ve been with the University of Rochester and what they are up to now. We thank you for your hard work and years of dedication!
Beverly Faro. Beverly retired in 2011 after dedicating almost thirty-eight years to the University of Rochester. She spent almost all of her years in Pediatrics as an NP in Pediatric Endocrinology, working in the Children’s Diabetes Center. When she retired from the University, she went to the Monroe County Department of Public Health and had the special privilege of coordinating the Nurse-Family Partnership Program, started by Dr. Harriet Kitzman from the URSON who was Beverly’s first boss in Pediatrics, for five and a half years. Now that she is a full-time retiree, she enjoys her time keeping active by running and swimming, reading, sewing, and spending time with her seven grandchildren. Beverly is also an active volunteer for Churchville Elementary School, the Rochester Interfaith Hospitality Network that serves homeless families, an Immigration legal clinic, and teaches Sunday school to children. She misses her wonderful work colleagues at the University of Rochester, although she continues to be included in their gatherings. She deeply misses the children & families affected with diabetes, whose lives she shared for many years. She felt honored to be a part of being able to transport health and hope through teamwork within her entire career.
