“I have always been intrigued by individual paths to a career in senior housing. As an only child raised by a single mother and grandparents in rural West Virginia, I never knew life without older adults. Being with seniors has always been natural and comforting to me. Having the ability to lead teams to provide an environment for residents to live their best lives and have fun every day is a gift I will never take for granted.”
