Chris Moldovan

Started at Age Well: September 2015

Job Title: Director of Nutrition & Wellness

Department:  Nutrition & Wellness

What do you love about your job at Age Well?

I love that work we do every day supports older Vermonters and enables them to live a vibrant life supporting them in managing their own health.

What do you find challenging?

I find the most challenging thing is also the most interesting thing! Each day is different a filled with lots of intriguing possibilities!

How would you describe your approach to helping clients?

The Nutrition & Wellness Department’s approach to helping clients is one of collaboration. We work to meet them where they are to gain an understanding of their needs and offer supports that they feel comfortable with.

What would you like more people to know about the work you do?

I wish more people understood all that Age Well has to offer. I run into people often that may have heard of Age Well but they do not fully understand the entire host of services and expertise we offer.

Where did you go to college?

I started in New York state and graduated from UVM in Nutrition and Dietetics, completing my internship with UVMMC. I have been active in my profession, serving three terms as president of our state association. I am honored to be a Fellow with the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. I serve currently as Dietitian Consultant to the VT Office of Professional Regulation.

Where did you grow up?

I grew up in Wappingers Falls, NY and moved to VT in 1984 (yikes!) to attend UVM. I have lived in VT longer than I did in New York!

What are you doing when you’re not at work?

You will find me puttering around my houseplants or gardening outside, reading a good book or cooking up something tasty! Unless I am out in nature taking a walk, biking or kayaking.


Jessica Owens

Started at Age Well: June 2021

Job Title: Executive Assistant

Department:  Administration

What do you love about your job at Age Well?

I love coming to work knowing that we are empowering caregivers, supporting those who have limited means to do so themselves, and that we are warriors for our aging Vermont population.

What do you find challenging?

I can’t clone myself and help everyone!

How would you describe your approach to helping clients?

I would describe my style as hands on. I love getting to know the person and be on their level.

What would you like more people to know about the work you do?

I cater to the specific needs and game plan drawn up by the CEO, Board of Directors and The Department Directors. I’m a hub for communications, allowing the leadership team to do their best work and run the show. I’m the wizard behind the curtain!

Where did you go to college?

I graduated from Essex High School. I attended both Community College of VT & UVM Adult Continuing Education majoring in Family Consumer Science, English and Business Administration.

Where did you grow up?

Essex Junction, VT

What are you doing when you’re not at work?

I’m a female mechanic/rally car driver who is an avid cosplayer and loves attending comic conventions. I’m also an aspiring DJ, video gamer/nerd, baker extraordinaire and love adventures with my corgi-Kaylee.

What do you love about your job at Age Well?

I love getting to provide support to our volunteers. They’re such a caring and compassionate group of people. I feel deeply honored by all they do!

What do you find challenging?

I wish everyone knew about Age Well. I think that there are still so many older Vermonter’s who are in need of our services. I feel blessed to be able to help spread the word in our community.

How would you describe your approach to helping clients?

My approach is to treat our clients the way I want my parent to be treated. With kindness, empathy and compassion, always!

What would you like more people to know about the work you do?

My job is to support our volunteers. We are very careful when we match a client and volunteer. We want it to develop into a strong bond and be enjoyable. Most of our volunteers tell me that the client becomes like family.

Jericho, VT

What are you doing when you’re not at work?

When I’m not at work, I’m spending time with my husband and daughter!
