Certified Placement Referral Specialists
Owner / Certified Placement Referral Specialists
My journey into the Senior industry began in 2010 with my own mom. I flew home to Idaho to help my family care for her after a terminal diagnosis. What started out as helping my mom through the last chapter of her life turned into a passion for helping seniors and their families.
As I cared for my mom during those last weeks, I kept thinking to myself there had to be a better way to spend time with a loved one when the time with them was so short. I wanted to help husbands, wives, sons, and daughters be there for their loved one as a family and not the primary caregiver. I found the answer when I took a position in a senior community.
I have experience in a community setting as the Director of Marketing for Independent Living, Assisted Living, and Memory Care. This gives me a unique and valuable perspective when it comes to placing a loved one in a community setting or in an adult care home.
Having a caring and knowledgeable consultant come alongside you during this transition time to find appropriate living arrangements and resources will relieve some of your stress. “I believe it is an honor to walk this journey with you and your family.”
I am a Certified Placement Referral Specialist which requires me to pass an exam, a background check, continuing education and to uphold the highest ethical standards for the benefit and protection of the health and welfare of older adults. My goal is to serve you, your loved ones, and our community by being a trusted advisor to help navigate you through the many challenges and choices of finding a senior living community or other resources.
My husband Graham and I have three daughters and one granddaughter. Our eldest daughter lives on the Oregon Coast, our middle daughter lives in Texas, and our youngest daughter lives in Arizona. I enjoy spending time with family, friends, and traveling. My favorite so far has been Ireland. I also love to read, scrapbook and take long drives to find out of the way places to take photographs.
I’ve had the honor of serving senior citizens for over 17 years. The first time I walked into an assisted living community I had no idea what they did there, I just knew they had a receptionist position open and I knew how to answer phones! Well the position had already been filled but they said they were hiring for Mas, I had no idea what that was but I decided to give it a shot. I was hired and quickly learned that an MA is a Medication Aid! I was trained to give seniors their medication and on how to be a caregiver. I’ve never worked so hard in my life! But through the steep learning curve I fell in love with serving senior citizens. I still remember the day I was working in the medication room and the Administrator called me and asked if I wanted to interview for the Director of Sales and Marketing position, I couldn’t get to his office quick enough!
I’ve been in a few different roles in the senior living industry. I’ve been part of hospice, skilled nursing, memory care communities, and assisted living communities. Because of my background I have a wide range of knowledge that I utilize to try my best to help others. Becoming a Senior Living Advisor has been me fulfilling what I believe is God’s calling for me. I’ve looked back on my time serving seniors and I can see how God has led me to where I am today. I’ve been truly blessed to be in the role that I am!
