Chemung, Schuyler, Steuben, and Seneca
Welcome to the Southern Tier Office of Parent to Parent of NYS
Nestled between portions of Finger Lakes and the boundary of Pennsylvania, this region is mainly rural with some small urban areas. There is a lot of farming, tourism, wineries and some notable industry in this area. History is also a big aspect of this region with the birthplace of the Women’s Suffragist movement and Memorial Day, Civil War Battle sites, home to the Watkins Glen Grand Prix, the burial site of Mark Twain and the origins of Corning and Steuben glass to name a few things.
Sharon Marrella is the Regional Coordinator in the Southern Tier for Parent to Parent of NYS, a position she has held since September 2005. She became the Regional Program Manager for the Western NY Region (Western, Finger Lakes, North Central and Southern Tier) as of December 2014. Sharon believes she has a good working understanding of this organization since she worked her way through different facets and positions from her initial request to be matched with another parent to where she is today.
