Superhero: Tess Timoney

Tess Timoney inducted into the Love Superhero Hall of Gratitude in April 2019. Tess is a nurse midwife at Bronx Lebanon Hosptial’s perinatal HIV program. We have collaborated together on research projects and enjoy connecting with each for support when challenging cases or conversations arise. Tess has an incredible ability to make massive systems change by implementing small steps in clinical screening or documentation.  In observing her efforts in recent years, she has accomplished what some would think a grant or recommendation would be required to get done. Not Tess. She sees a way that is better for women and their families and then works with her colleagues to see how to step-by-step these changes can be operationalized.  Totally inspired, Tess!

About the Love Superhero Hall of Gratitude

“The plain fact is that the world does not need more successful people, but it does desperately need more peacemakers, healers, restorers, storytellers, and lovers of every kind. It needs people who live well in their places. It needs people of moral courage willing to join the fight to make the world habitable and humane.” David Orr

I deeply admire those who “live well in their places.” The ordinary and the unsung who offer to the world the very best parts of themselves without expectation.

This is a beautiful expression of love in her calm, persistent, generous manner – offering a ripple of change (a metamorphosis) to the world.

Inductees to the Love Superhero Hall of Gratitude are caped in recognition of their contributions to a love-filled world.
