Constance Sweeney

Grew up: I was born and raised in San Carlos, and moved to Half Moon Bay when I was 16

Joined Mission Hospice: in 2012 as a volunteer, and in 2017 as an employee

Why this work? I was inspired by the loving care my father received in hospice, and felt called to be a volunteer.

Mission Hospice in three words: Compassionate patient-centric care

Passions: Traveling, horses, dancing, music, journaling, the beach, elder care, and my two grandchildren, Diogo and Mathias – they rock my world!

Favorite food: I love food! Italian, Mexican, and Indian food are among my favorites.

Reading: “Way of Mastery” by Shanti Christo Foundation

Desert island album: Hard to name one, but I’d say “Wade in the Water” by Ramsey Lewis or anything by Neil Young

Little known fact: In 2001, I summited Mount Kilimanjaro

Favorite movie: “King of Hearts” with Alan Bates

On my bucket list: Go to the Kentucky Derby; visit Greenland, Antarctica, Scotland; see more of India; and learn to sew.
