Why did you choose a career path in senior healthcare?
I choose a career path in senior healthcare because I enjoy hearing the life stories of older adults and being able to advocate for residents. I think it is very fascinating to hear how someone grew up and how world events affected their lives directly. One story that has stayed with me is the story of this person living in Germany during World War 2 and every time she hears the tornado sirens; she remembers being a little girl in Germany and getting in the bunkers. Hearing this story makes me appreciate and know why I choose a career in senior healthcare because not many people know someone who experienced this kind of life event. The best part of working in senior healthcare is you never know who you will meet and the life events they lived through. Every day is a new opportunity for me to learn a little bit of history!
Name your best work moment.
My best work moment was attending our annual thanksgiving dinner for residents and family members. During this event, family members and residents got to enjoy the classic thanksgiving dinner food while getting to visit with their loved one.
What do you look most forward to at work?
What I look forward to most at work is my morning rounds I complete each morning. The very first thing I do when I get to work is walk around the facility and say good morning to the residents and hear about their night.
Name some of your favorite things to do outside of work.
My favorite thing to do outside of work is to enjoy the company of my family and be outside including hiking, camping, and stand up paddle boarding.
