I first discovered that I had a passion to work with Seniors and Adults when I was 13 years old. I spent a whole summer caring for an Adult with disabilities. That summer opened my eyes to a different understanding of people. I realized my passion that summer, to pursue a career that would allow me to make a difference in people’s lives. And that is why I love my job and going to work every day. I am able to use my strengths and ensure that we provide the best possible care to our residence and give support to the team. It warms my heart to see the sparkle in a residents eyes when something I have said or done makes a difference in their quality of life. Through my job, I have mastered valuable skills including problem solving, verbal and non-verbal communication, as well as patience and compassion.Our company is family owned and operated and very much involved in the day-to-day flow of the homes. My work family is amazing, and I find laughing and working daily toward reaching our goals a fulfilling experience.

I am detail oriented, a creative problem solver and good listener. Some of my strengths include finding resources for those we serve as well as our staff, using creative solutions to solve problems, and being an effective verbal and non-verbal communicator.

I’m a firm believer in my life quote. “People may forget what you said, people will forget what you did, But people will never forget how you made them feel.” -Author Maya Angelou
