I am the General Manager of the Montgomery County TX franchise office. I have been so blessed to enjoy a career in Customer Service serving others. More specifically in Senior Care for the past 11 years, serving as Executive Director of several Senior Living communities. I have been blessed with the opportunity to work with all areas of care, from Independent living to Assisted living, and Memory Care. I have also worked in Home Health as well as Home Care. It is such a pleasure, and an honor to serve our seniors. I believe everyone deserves outstanding service and respect. It seems natural to want to work with, and serve seniors to provide the very best for the wonderful people who paved the way for me! I am a Mom of two children, and a grandmother of two children. I also have two furry babies as well. Being a Mother and a grandmother has been by far the hardest and most rewarding job I have ever had! It is my hope that I may be as much of a blessing to our seniors as they are to me. I look forward to lots of fun, friendship, and hopefully making someone's day a little brighter!
