Why did you choose a career path in senior healthcare?
I chose my career in healthcare because I want to help people. I greatly enjoy developing and working with a team of caregivers that want to help people as well. It is very rewarding to work with a good team.

Name your best work moment.
Watching a resident discharge home when rehab was not expected. I saw a man very distraught in the parking lot of the facility I worked. I went outside to help him; he could not bring himself to come into the facility. He had to place his son, whom had been in a very bad auto accident. One year after placement, his son was discharged home. He was walking...and waving good bye to us. The father again wept, only tears of joy. The staff at the facility had a long lasting bond with the resident and the family.

What do you look most forward to at work?
I look forward to the changes we make in the lives of our Residents and family members. I enjoy the day with the staff, as they become your family away from home.

Name some of your favorite things to do outside of work.
We have a family farm and I am often busy with work outside of work! I love spending time with my family, we all love to fish. I have a 4 year old granddaughter that I adore.
