Why did you choose a career path in senior healthcare?

I always say senior care chose me. I went to school for education and spent 3 years as a teacher and then applied for an administrative assistant job at a nursing home on a whim and change career paths quickly delving into the healthcare system through multiple positions in a relatively short time frame. I also grew up around senior care, my grandmother was in a nursing home from the time I was born due to Alzheimer’s Disease, so I was quite comfortable in the nursing homes and medical settings. I enjoy learning and connecting with patients, so this has been the perfect setting for me to settle into.

Name your best work moment.

Hosting our first Strike Out Alzheimer’s bowling event since COVID has been my favorite moment so far! It was so great to bring back and grow an event I had previously attended and enjoyed. I am looking forward to continued growth and success for years to come!

What do you look most forward to at work?

Community education and involvement is my favorite part of my job. I love speaking and educating about the benefits of Home Health and how we can better serve seniors within the comfort of their homes. I have met wonderful people through this job and being able to be a resource for patients and co-workers alike is so rewarding.

Name some of your favorite things to do outside of work.

I love spending time with my family doing just about anything. My husband and I renovated our 1949 Cape Cod a couple of years ago and I enjoy all the little projects we’ve continued. My daughter loves to explore the kitchen, so I like to try and include her in small tasks and watch her excitement over the littlest things.
