Director of Health & Wellness, LPN


What aspect of your role in senior care do you find most fulfilling?

I love getting to know the residents and their families and supporting them in the best and worst of times. I enjoy looking at residents' pictures and finding out the story behind them.

What do you love about our community here?

Having worked in other communities in the past, I love the fun, family atmosphere at Golden Pond. Residents are active in life, making Golden Pond a fun and often interesting place to work.

How does your background or a particular skill benefit our team?

I became a nurse while enlisted in the Army. This allowed me to learn different techniques and work with other medical professionals from around the world in high-pressure situations.

What do you enjoy outside work that contributes to your wellbeing or happiness?

I enjoy being outdoors, hiking 14ers, and playing Paintball. My family is the driving force in my life that keeps me going every day.

With glowing reviews and 20 years of experience, Golden Pond is the perfect place for your loved one to call home. Take the first step – contact us today!
