Meet Your Regional Vice President of Operations
How did you get into senior living?
Growing up I was very close to my grandparents. I would often volunteer to stay with them at their home when they needed help during an illness. I would also volunteer at the Assisted Living community they eventually moved into. After becoming a RN, I continued helping them and became drawn to the care of seniors. I started my career in Long Term Care and never looked back.
Who truly inspires you?
My father inspired me throughout my entire life until he lost his battle with lung cancer. The love he had for his parents, children and grandchildren were remarkable. Even from the moment I began working as a paper carrier, he pushed me to be the best I could be. His peaceful acceptance of approaching death from cancer, knowing he was headed to live eternally, was especially inspirational.
A thing people be surprised to know about you?
I love to go fishing every chance I get! In fact, I was the person to catch the largest fish on my honeymoon fishing excursion!
Beatles or Elvis?
How did you wind up at Inspired Living?
A friend introduced me to some key players at the organization. As I heard their story, I knew I had to be a part of it. How exciting to join a company during such a time when I can have an impact on its future all while doing what I love!
What do you want your legacy to be?
One of my greatest pleasures is working with my teams to coach and develop them towards their career and personal aspirations. I hope that the lives I touch will look back and see the passion I had for their successes.
