Meet our Director
How did you get into Senior Living?
I began my career in assisted living waiting tables for residents in my grandmother’s assisted living facility in St. Petersburg in 1979
Who truly inspires you?
Bill Belichick inspires me for his commitment to excellence, his ability to challenge those around him, and his competitive drive for perfection.
What is something people would be surprised to know about you?
I have a child who has graduated college, another who started college, and another who is entering PreK next fall.
Beatles or Elvis?
Elvis…definitely Elvis, this shouldn’t even be a question!
How did you wind up at Inspired Living?
I was performing skilled care with residents as a home health nurse, I was taken aback by the community and the caring staff. The timing was right for me and my family and I wanted to be apart of this work-family and community of residents .
What do you want your legacy to be?
I would like my legacy to be a positive impression on family and friends. I want the staff to feel like I had a hand in operating a facility that runs like clockwork so we all have more time to enjoy our jobs, our residents, and ultimately have a balanced home-work life.
