My desire to serve seniors and their families began when my mother-in-law suffered from a traumatic health event. I learned how it feels to be in crises with the need to quickly make decisions on care options and finances. I had wished for someone to walk alongside me as a knowledgeable resource that had my loved one’s best interest in mind. This started my journey to work in multiple assisted living and memory care communities. With the knowledge and experience I have in the Salem-Portland area I felt it was time to focus on families and helping them find the very best solution for their loved one. I know the emotional toll on seniors and their families moving can cause and my desire is to ease the transition for my clients. My goal is to provide a valuable resource in order to free up your time so you can focus on supporting your loved one. Being a senior living advisor is an absolute privilege and I value each individual I get to work with. On a personal note, I am a former elementary school teacher, grew up in Salem and currently live in Lake Oswego with my husband, three children, and two Labradoodles. My family lives nearby and I am so grateful my children are very close to their grandparents.
