Frederick (married 5/11/91)
This is the same guy that Maia dated
throughout high school!
Joshua - TWINS! (born 2/11/94) (Note, the twins are fraternal, and,
according to Maia, they look nothing alike. I'm told that Brian loves sports, particularly Ice Hockey.)
Degree in Nursing from Alvernia College
hobbies include coaching Soccer for her son’s 8-and-under soccer team
(as of 2001).
She is also quite a cake baker. In fact, she once baked a Tinky-Winky
Medical Center - Pediatric RN (She used to work with Stephanie Shaeff
until Stephanie moved to Nantucket.)
The Fredericks have two Golden Retrievers, one
named "Champ" and the other named "Lucky."
Apparently Lucky was "lucky" to have been purchased by someone
at a pet store for $800 and then was later adopted by Maia. Lucky once
killed a rooster and a duck. Hehehe. The pictures above are
all of "Champ", the one on the left is of "Champ"
when he was just a puppy.

in Jamaica and gave birth to twins on February 11th, 1994.
|Chris Mal Notes:
|Maia was quite a golfer back in high
She was also class Vice-President in 10th grade. She
obviously was smart enough to get out before we graduated. They never
tell you that your greatest obligation as class officer is reunion
planning for the rest of your life!
Maia, Christine and I
used to call Mrs. Star "Mama Vegetable," and I used to call
Maia "Super Pickle" and I think used to even be "Super
Broccoli" or something.
One of the many fond memories I have of the Senior Class trip was
driving Maia and Christine around like a madman on a Golf Cart.
Maia's brother Eric was working at The Crab Barn
as of May 2001.
Page 133 of the senior yearbook, "Ed's Stamps (every Friday and Saturday
at Zern's Market)" has an ad which says "Congratulations to Maia Carvalho
and the Class of '86." The ad is right over the top of a picture of
Julie Hyman and Chrissie Cunnius looking rather forlorn.
In 2005, Maia received the Professional
Development Recognition Award for 2005. "The award recognizes
acute care bedside RNs for consistent advocacy of the nursing profession
through positive role modeling and leadership participation within their
department, the hospital, and the local community."
This letter to the editor appeared in the
Reading Eagle, 5/10/06...
have been a nurse for more than 16 years and I am once again
upset to see a front page article about nurse recruitment
(“Prognosis good for nurses,” Reading Eagle, March 5).
Little or nothing is done or said about
nurse retention. Yes, new graduates do get recruited for jobs
but they stay only one or two years to get their bonuses and
then they leave.
Meanwhile, nurses with a commitment to
their employer and their patients, and who have worked for an
employer for many years, receive little or no incentive to stay.
If anyone truly cares about the nursing shortage, then more must
be done to keep nurses at the bedside caring for patients.
Give nurses retention bonuses, let nurses
have more input concerning patient care and improve the
Employers can recruit as many new graduates
as they want, but if the nurses don’t stay, employers will have
spent a lot of money on orientation and still not have enough
