By day, Heather Carlino is a clinical lecturer at Penn’s pediatric acute care nurse practitioner program. Her other passion is Spring Brook Farm, a West Chester-based nonprofit that provides animal therapy and other activities for kids ages 6-12 with autism, cerebral palsy, Down Syndrome and other special needs. Carlino serves as vice president of Spring Brook Farm’s board of directors, and her nursing know-how powers its Camp Geronimo. “The animal-human bond is amazing and inspiring,” Carlino says. “When you put a bunny in someone’s lap who can’t talk to you and their whole face lights up, you know they’ve made a connection and felt joy.”
