Christine Cuddy joined the Senior Center staff in 2015. She is well known throughout the building for her loud laugh.
Originally from Bay Area, Christine began working in the Title and Escrow field shortly after graduation and spent 25 years as an Escrow Officer of residential, commercial, refinance and exchange real estate transactions. She formed, staffed and headed the Refinance Division for a large title and escrow company in the North Bay. Christine moved to Elk Grove with her sons to make some life changes. Prior to the Senior Center, Christine worked with a local CPA managing seven offices around the state, developing marketing strategies, and more.
As a volunteer, in 1999, Christine began working with the (now) Avon Breast Cancer 3 Day events as Division Leader, Crew Manager and Crew Captain in 15 walk events along the West Coast. Her duties were to recruit, train, prepare and oversee up to 500 volunteer crew members before events and managed each road team during the events.
When Christine isn’t at the Senior Center, she hangs around at home, designs and maintains the Center’s websites, and spends as much time as she can with her two sons Mike, 30 and Joe, 28 and her dad Joe.
“I am very excited to be a part of the Senior Center of Elk Grove. I love the seniors, their enthusiasm and zest for life. It’s an honor and a joy to spend time around our members.” - Christine
Renee Hodgkin joined the Senior Center as a volunteer at the Center’s Front Desk more than 8 years ago and went on to become a true “Girl Friday” doing whatever was needed whenever called upon. Her volunteerism led her to be the weekly “shopper” for the Le Café and the Salad Bar. Renee has also been the Chef for the Annual Butterfly Tea for 3 years, helping purchase, donate and preparing the lovely meal enjoyed by all of the 100 people in attendance.
Before Renee moved to Sacramento she enjoyed working for a company in Los Angeles where she “shopped” the clerks in major Department Stores in and around Los Angeles for honesty and courtesy.
After college in Sacramento, Renee and her husband co-managed a major restaurant for several years. She left the restaurant to work for a Mortgage Company in the Insurance Department assembling and validating insurance documentation for refinance and new home purchases.
After her two children began school Renee volunteered at each school until the year after they graduated from High School. She then began Managing a Pottery Studio in Elk Grove where she helped children and adults enjoy the art of “creating” works of art that they could either give as gifts or enjoy themselves.
Renee spends what leisure time she has with her two beautiful granddaughters, grandson and her family. She loves to create and has for many years created and donated some beautiful works of art to the annual Holiday Gift Faire.
Renee believes in helping people and gives freely of her time to anyone in need.
