Describe what you do in a nutshell.
In my position, I am responsible for the professional oversight of the campus and the care of our residents. I am a member of the executive management team and I participate in the policy development and administrative decision-making to ensure that every one of our residents has their needs met and that we are providing them with a high quality of life where each and every day has value.

I absolutely love spending time one-on-one with the residents and hearing the stories of their lives. I like to hear about their careers and families. I love that they want to share their stories with me. It keeps me humble to see the circle of life on a daily basis and to be able to assist each resident through the struggles of aging.
