Meet Our Director
Why did you get into senior living?
I started out doing volunteer work. Volunteering became a job offer. That job became a career. And that career became a passion that I am wildly in love with.
Before I started volunteering my only real experience with senior living was seeing my grandma in a very sub par nursing facility. Every time we would visit her, then have to leave, my biggest prayer was always that when we weren’t around that someone would take great care of her. That they would make her feel special and important. That they would give her attention. That they would love her. So, when I had the time and opportunity to give back and spend my time doing those very things, I jumped on it. I never imagined that this would be my career path, but sometimes life has an unexpected way of showing you your true purpose.
Who inspires you?
My mom and dad! They have endlessly encouraged my dreams and pushed me towards my goals. They have always emphasized the importance of putting God and family first. They instilled in me that hard work, perseverance, and a heart of gratitude can conquer almost anything. They showed me what it means to love unconditionally, to help those in need, and to have integrity.
They are truly just wonderful people, wonderful role models.
Who I am today and everything I will become in the future is a direct result of their love and support!
What would people be surprised to know about you?
I am an avid fitness buff. I am at the gym most mornings by 5am! I am constantly focused on conquering new goals. Half marathons, adventure races, new fitness fads. I enjoy the sense of accomplishment that comes with training for new challenges.
Beatles or Elvis?
I would have to say… neither. Growing up in Kentucky, I am more of a country music fan. I could listen to Garth Brooks all day every day though!
How did you wind up at Inspired Living?
I believe I ended up at Inspired Living by fate.
I was perfectly content and wasn’t actively seeking out a new career opportunity. Kameren in talent recruiting reached out about an opportunity and I was so impressed by our conversation that I quickly agreed to a in person meeting. During the entire interview process I was constantly amazed with the brilliant, fun, and compassionate people I met. It almost felt too good to be true. It was hard to believe that a company could really be that amazing. But after I came on board I quickly realized that the people and culture really were something special. Becoming part of the Inspired Living family has been one of the biggest blessings of my life!
What do you want your legacy to be?
One of my favorite quotes is by Carrie Hamilton. She says;
“Our legacy is really the lives we touch, the inspiration we give, altering someone’s plan – if even for a moment – and getting them to think, cry, laugh, argue. More than anything we are remembered for our smiles; the ones we share with our closest and dearest, and the ones we bestow on a total strange, who needed it right then, and God put you there to deliver”.
That quote really sums up what I want my legacy to be. I want to make a difference in the lives of others. I want to bring happiness to those around me. I want my family, friends, and one day children to say I lived a life of impact. I lived a life of love. That I used the gifts God blessed me with to help make the world better in some small way.
