Sue Baldauf has spent her adult life in human services, helping others to make their way through life’s crises through guidance and counseling. It’s serious work for serious people.
Early on, though, Baldauf had to learn how to leave the job at the office. “You can’t take it home,” she said. “It’s hard to know when a light bulb went off. Mentors I had told me the same thing. You’ve got to be able to do the work and not take it personally. “When I train students, or I mentor, I say you’ve got to be able to compartmentalize it.”
As director of Bedford’s Youth and Family Services, and after more than four decades of helping others, Baldauf is retiring. Sort of.
