Job Responsibilities: Meets with potential Clients and their families to discuss Home Instead services, and conducts quality assurance visits with current Clients. Territory: South Fort Collins/Loveland.

Why Senior Care: During my CSU Internship, I purposely chose Elderhaus Adult Day Programs as I thought I wanted to work with children but decided to broaden my outlook on the future. This internship opened my eyes to the most incredible generation to serve. I decided to become a caregiver at an Assisted Living Facility and really enjoyed the quick paced environment and the number of residents that I became so close with. To this day, I couldn’t think of a more perfect profession for myself - not to mention how fun it is to learn about a person’s journey through life! We can all learn so much from this wise age group.

Why Senior Care: Being a mum of 3, as well as a daughter, gave me an insight into the needs of seniors in my community, many of whom are isolated from family and support in their homes in this beautiful location. Home Instead gives me an opportunity to reach the seniors in my community and provide care to them in their homes with a fantastic group of CAREGivers.

​Job Responsibilities: Meets with potential Clients and their families to discuss Home Instead services, and conducts quality assurance visits with current Clients. Territory: South Fort Collins/Loveland.

Background: B.S. in Human Development and Family Studies with a Minor in Gerontology. A.S. with an emphasis on Human Physiology. Past Home Instead Intern.

Why Senior Care: My passion for seniors began as a teen while working in a long term care facility. I enjoyed hearing and sharing life experiences with seniors so much that I went on to become an activity director in a few different facilities, one of which brought me to Colorado. Since that time and with the decline of my aging parents due to Parkinson's disease, my focus has turned toward senior advocacy and resource development. I feel, oftentimes, families and seniors alike are unaware of all the services available in the community to assist in keeping them as independent as possible. ​
