Why did you get into senior living?

After retiring as a military nurse I was looking for a 2nd career. A friend of mine was working in senior living and asked me to join her at her assisted living community. I started off as a part time floor nurse and felt the need to serve even more and decided that senior living was to be my 2nd career.

Who truly inspires you?

My family… My spouse who encourages me and holds me accountable. My children who I do all that I do for. My parents for the loving environment they brought me up in and the character they instilled in me. My siblings for always being a phone call away and always reliable to give the best advice.

What is something people would be surprised to know about you?

I am afraid of lizards…Yes, living in Florida and I literally run when I see a lizard.

Beatles or Elvis?

I actually am more a fan of Ray Charles. “Georgia…”

How did you wind up at Inspired Living?

I had heard of Inspired Living from a professional mutual friend. After researching the company I decided I wanted to join the team. I waited and watched for an opportunity and then it came. I called them, they called me back and the rest is history.

What do you want your legacy to be?

A God following leader who inspires all through his example.
