Haynes House of Hope welcomes new executive director

T he Haynes House of Hope recently welcomed its new executive director, Tamme Taran.

Taran has been on staff as temporary replacement for the organization’s director, who was on medical leave since January 2013. She became the permanent executive director in August 2013.

Taran comes to Haynes House with an extensive background in the nursing and supervisory fields. She received her associates in nursing from Castleton State College in 1986. She graduated from Kaplan University with a BSN, summa cum laude, in 2007.

She is currently employed by Granville Central School District as a nurse and at Pleasant Valley Infirmary in Argyle as assistant director of nursing. She is also on the town board of Hampton, where she resides with her husband Joe on the dairy farm where they raised their three sons.

“Tamme has been a tremendous asset to our organization. She has a genuine caring, sympathetic way with people, which has not only been a benefit in caring for our residents, but also in attracting new volunteers. Under Tamme’s leadership, our volunteer base has grown tremendously. We look forward to many years of growth with Tamme at our helm,” said Patty Godnick, president of the Board of Directors.

“I have greatly enjoyed my time at the Haynes House; it is a very rewarding experience. This is health care at its best,” Taran replied.
