Education\ Experience

I have a early childcare degree and Human Services and Sociology. I attended MATC and Edgewood College. I have been in the healthcare field for over 25 years and a lot of that time was spent in Activities and Management. I also was Social Service designee, Resident Services director, Home health and Marketing. I love working with Seniors and it has been my passion since I was a young child. I started volunteering in Nursing homes when I was in grade school and also did pastoral care through my Church and School.

Attracted to career supporting and caring for older adults

I knew at a young age that this was my calling. I was born to serve and take care of others and I haven’t lost that passion at all. In fact I think it has even grown stronger in the last few years. What a honor it’s to be part of so many people’s lives and learning all about them. I have tried different avenue in my career but I always come back to working with the seniors and I am so lucky!

What Makes Brightstar Senior living Unique

The first moment I walked through the doors I felt at home. There was peacefulness and love here. Those feelings and being part of the Brightstar family is so wonderful! Dedicated to making a difference in our residents lives and their families too.

What are you Passionate about in my role

Joy!! I love making time come alive for my residents and being part of their lives in a real honor. Joy comes in some many ways and sometimes it’s the littlest things that can bring complete Joy. There is nothing better than watching your residents have fun and laugh so hard they have tears of Joy! Life is precious and anytime that I can bring Joy to our residents I will do that!

What brand promise do I connect to

I connect to them all but the one that does stand out to me is Joy! When you have Joy there is beauty and connection. Everything that I do I try to do it with Joy. This last year has taught me that life is short and you better enjoy all that you can. I will always try to choose Joy!!
