Why did you choose a career path in senior healthcare?
I chose healthcare with my whole heart, senior care chose me and changed me forever. Our most valuable and knowledgeable people now need our help and we can continue to learn from them and their past experiences while giving them dignity and respect in their time of need. It is a pleasure to be able to help seniors when needed.
Name your best work moment.
Caring for a patient whose condition declined unexpectedly making them critical. Then working as an advocate for that patient when ambulance crews did not want to transport. The patient’s spouse would then call daily to give me updates regarding that patient. After the patient was stabilized and discharged home the patient and family thanked me for helping to save her. They were so pleased that they sent letters to let my company know what a great job I did. The best part of that for me was knowing that I was able to help the patient.
What do you look most forward to at work?
Interacting with and educating staff regarding providing the best care possible for the patients that we care for.
Name some of your favorite things to do outside of work.
I enjoy spending time with family, friends and my dogs. Being out in the country listening to and enjoying wildlife.
