Brian has been serving seniors since 1996. As a Deputy Sheriff, he found himself going on welfare check calls for seniors and staying several hours to socialize with them just to be sure that they were okay. Those experiences led him to start South Bay Senior Solutions Inc. in Santa Clara County California. That company started with him opening Home Instead Senior Care and evolved into the creation of The Aging Resource Center to bring senior resources to an underserved rural community. The center was a focal point for aging services in the area offering solutions for durable medical products, medication management, Home Safety equipment, housing, in home care, assistance with finding community resources, and community education on aging issues.
With his 23+ years of experience working with seniors, Brian has developed a keen understanding of the challenges seniors and their families face every day and the many options available for addressing those challenges. He enjoys bringing his knowledge to the Olympic Peninsula to improve how people age. The vision Statement for his company is "Leading Our Communities In Successful Aging by Enhancing The Lives of Those We Serve"
He has previously served on multiple boards including, The Shipley Center, The Sequim Sunrise Rotary Club, Information & Assistance of Santa Clara County, and is the Current President of The Sequim Dungeness Valley Chamber of Commerce.
