I grew up in Phoenix with a younger brother with juvenile diabetes. When I was 26 years old my brother was in a diabetic coma and needed 24 hour care. That began my introduction to nursing facilities and long term care. Later my father was diagnosed with early Alzheimers and had to be placed in a facility as well. This was before the time of special memory care placements. I remember the smells and dim lights of the care homes of the past. I have acted as both the guardian and conservator for different family members and understand the confusion and difficulty in placing a loved one in a home. I have lived several lives as a sales representative for pharmaceuticals to receiving a Masters degree in public policy and advocating for children. I am well versed in both the health system and the policies in place to protect people within the system. I have turned my attention back to an area close to my heart by helping seniors find appropriate quality care that both the loved one and the family can feel good about. I have watched Phoenix grow and with it have come many more care homes and facilities making senior placement somewhat daunting. I welcome the opportunity to help people make the right choice for their loved one.

I grew up in the valley and have lived here for over 35 years. I have acted as both the guardian and conservator for my own family members and understand the sometimes daunting task of finding a loved one a place to live. I am well versed in both the health system and the policies in place to protect people within the system. I have turned my attention back to an area close to my heart by helping seniors find appropriate quality care that both the loved one and the family can feel good about. As the valley continues to grow so do the number of care homes and facilities and I enjoy helping take the confusion out of placing a senior.

I have personal experience trying to find homes for both my parents and brother and I understand the difficulties involved in making those decisions. My experience in healthcare coupled with my policy background really enable me to be compassionate while navigating the process of placing a loved one.
