About Dr. Marilynn R. Glasser

Dr. Glasser retired in 2005 from an administrative position with a municipal recreation and parks department in New York State. As a professional recreator, she dedicated nearly 30 years of service to the public sector. In addition, she has taught both undergraduate and graduate recreation, parks and leisure service courses, as an adjunct instructor/assistant professor, for over 25 years. She has been involved with professional recreation associations at the regional, state and national levels, including serving both appointed and elected positions. She has also been a speaker at association sponsored conferences at all three levels.

She resides in Patterson, NY but frequently travels the east coast, from Cape Cod to Florida, in a small motor home with her spouse and her pets, a chocolate lab, a retired racing greyhound and two cats, calico sisters. She is a golfer, she skis occasionally, likes horseback-riding, is a nature lover and enjoys outdoor events such as concerts, art shows, flea markets and classic car shows. Marilynn is a collector of items from the 1950's and is the proud owner of the quintessential classic car, a turquoise and white 1957 Chevy convertible! She is an art deco enthusiast and a member of the Historic Preservation Advisory Committee of Westchester County, NY.

Marilynn looked forward to retirement for many reasons - not the least of which was to start a recreation consulting firm whereby she could focus on assisting others in areas she considers her favorites - those areas she has continuously enjoyed throughout her career and those in which she feels she is particularly proficient. Thus she established Parks and Pastimes, Inc. with passion, enthusiasm and determination. Though Parks and Pastimes, Inc. is indeed a business, it will be her pleasure to assist others by "helping enhance quality of life"!
