Angie Copley | Vice President of Clinical Services
Why did you choose a career path in senior healthcare?
I started in this field when I was 16 years old, as a nursing assistant in the nursing home. At the time I did not think it would led me to my career path but it did. 22 years later this is my passion and can’t imagine doing anything else.
Name your best work moment.
In 22 years there have been so many but my favorite was when I was going to Amsterdam to see my sister, a resident overheard me talking about it and asked me to come to his room later. When I went to his room, he showed me books of his hometown near Amsterdam and asked me if I’d visit his town and take some pictures while I was there. Specifically, he wanted me take a picture of the oldest bridge in the world. I told him I would. My sister and I drove to his town and we couldn’t find the bridge so I called the resident. I described to him what was around me and he told me to look to the left and there was the bridge, you could no longer drive on it due to the age. I took a bunch of pictures of his town and took them back in a book for him.
What do you look most forward to at work?
Making a difference and feeling like I’ve accomplished something big.
Name some of your favorite things to do outside of work.
Spend time with my husband, kids, family and friends. My kids are highly involved in sports so most of this “family time” is me being their Uber Driver or screaming from the sidelines.
