Director of the FRC- Deborah Zipkin
I count myself among the few people who are lucky enough to say they love their jobs. Even after more
than twenty years as director of the Family Resource Center at Charter Oak, I still can’t wait to get to
work every day. I moved here in 1993 after teaching in an early childhood program in New York City and
though I still love to visit NYC whenever possible, West Hartford has been a wonderful place to raise my
daughter, Emily and son, Sam. When I’m not at work, my husband and I escape to the Berkshires, often
bringing our dog, Ginger Rogers, with us. I love reading, writing, running in 5K races and going to the
theater. And I’m thrilled to say that in January I’ll become a grandmother for the first time.
