Servant leadership trait: Validating and comforting others in hard times
When I began working with seniors at age 17, I never looked back. From housekeeping and administration to social work, my passion is serving our older adults.
My background, more than 30 years in management, gives me unique insight into the senior living landscape. I joined the Walker team in 2017, and now I manage our Kenzie community. I complete recertification for each resident, address everyday issues that may come up, and oversee our team. Each day, I love knowing my work has a positive impact on the life of another person.
In my free time, I can be found spending time with my family, reading, and going out to eat.
Servant leadership trait: Hearing and validating others
From a young age, I’ve been drawn to connecting with and serving older adults. In college, I volunteered at senior living communities and knew I was where I wanted to be.
I joined the Walker team in 2021. Creating relationships with residents, I help them connect with services; support them in interactions with insurance, doctors, and more; and plan events and activities. Every day, I strive to build trust with others, assuring residents they are not alone. I love to help them stay independent and improve their wellbeing.
In my free time, you can find me camping, kayaking, or trying a new coffee shop.
I earned my degree in psychology and health communication from Bethany Lutheran College.
