I love the feeling that I can make a difference in someone’s life! I graduated from college with a teaching degree and taught school until I started my family. I really enjoyed teaching and was a substitute teacher at my children’s elementary school while they were growing up. During this time I also cared for my grandmother who had a stroke, and my mother who had colon cancer. It was hard work but I felt a deep, personal satisfaction at the end of the day. I provided a personal touch and made them feel loved and important. I started working with Aspen Senior Care about 10 years ago as a caregiver and a few years later came into the office and joined the scheduling team. In caring for clients I have formed some very special bonds, and these dear friends will always hold a place in my heart.
Being a “gramma” is my favorite hobby! I love to look on Facebook and Pinterest for fun, out of the ordinary projects to do with my 4 grandsons and their cousins. I love the outdoors – camping, hiking, four-wheeling, anything that involves the great outdoors. I also enjoy running. I have completed several 5k races and even 4 half marathons! I also enjoy music, reading positive, uplifting books and stories, doing fun things with my adult children, playing games, going barefoot, and basically living each day of my life to its fullest.
