Administrator/Treasurer

My journey to senior living started years ago when my mother was diagnosed with dementia. Having no family in the area to help me work through the maze. I had no idea where to start or what to do. This experience drove me to make a career change. I knew that if I could help just even one family avoid the challenges I had been through; it would be worth it. It turns out that senior living is my calling and I have never looked back.

I am so blessed to be a part of the journey of each and every family I work with. My job never feels like work, rather like I am just helping new friends.

My degrees in marketing and management as well as being a certified dementia practitioner.
