Cindi Green


Cindi was born and raised in western MA, but currently resides in Uxbridge, MA with her husband and
cat. She has been blessed with 3 kids, 4 grandkids, 5 grand dogs and 3 grand cats. Cindi graduated from
Green Mountain College with a Fine Arts degree and over the years has worked in advertising, accounting, customer service and as an administrative assistant. In 2018, her and her husband retired and moved here to be closer to the grandkids.
Cindi loves to be busy with gardening, reading, traveling, and of course spending time with the grandkids. Camping has also been a big part of retirement; always searching for a new adventure! 
Aside from volunteering, she also fosters pups in need. Finding Pawfect Life Rescue and beginning her
volunteer work with them in 2022, has made for the best retirement!
