I began working in home health care in 2003 and felt this is what I was meant to do. In 2005, I moved to the La Crosse area from California and continued to work with the elderly and adults with disabilities. In 2012, I stopped working in the field to work for a power sports shop where I did the event planning, advertising, web design and social media.
After doing that for about a year, I missed being a caregiver and when I heard that the Dwelling Place had an opening, I sent my resume in and was very fortunate to get the job. A week after I started I was promoted to the lead staff position.
I am very happy to be a part of these residents lives. I want to keep expanding their quality of life, by creating new and fun things to do with them in their home and out in the community. I also like giving the families the reassurance their family member is in the best place they could be in.
