I have been with Aspen Senior Care for 8 years. I started as a caregiver and then a field supervisor before moving into my current position in scheduling. I really enjoy working closely with our wonderful caregivers and amazing clients. I graduated from BYU with a Bachelor’s Degree in speech therapy and spent my summers during college working as a CNA in a nursing home. I grew to love and admire the residents there. They had so much wisdom and life experience and I loved hearing about their lives and visiting with them. When I learned about Aspen Senior Care I knew I wanted to be a part of it! I am currently a Certified Companion Aide and a Certified Hospice Companion Aide. In my spare time I like to cook, read, watch movies and sew, if I can find a fun project.
My grandparents were a big part of my life growing up. We lived a block away from them when I was young and then we moved into a home with an attached apartment for them when I was a teenager. I have fond memories of helping them in the garden, doing chores, cooking and just sharing my day with them. When I got my driver’s license I became my grandparents’ official driver – taking them to the store and running errands – I loved it! I didn’t realize it at the time, but it prepared me for a wonderful career working with seniors, for which I am very grateful.
