The Mayor grew up in Canisteo, graduated from Canisteo High School, and received a Nursing degree in 1984 where she worked for St. James Hospital before joining the Federal Bureau of Prisons in 1994.  While working in a correctional field, she worked various positions of responsibility, moving to eight different States and positions before becoming the Bureau’s first nurse to become Warden. Mayor Recktenwald was Warden and CEO at three different correctional facilities with numerous levels of security until her retirement in 2016.  The Mayor’s father owned and operated Marty’s Repair Service in Canisteo while she was growing up, and she always knew she would move back home to Canisteo someday.
