Although she moved from Washington and is a new resident to Houston, she is not new to the in-home care industry.

She also enjoys managing the caregivers and the reward of developing strong relationships with them. She is looking forward to becoming part of our friendly, active staff and is excited to network in the community as well.

Being close to her family was the primary reason for her move to Houston and she really enjoys living here and working for Home Instead Senior Care.
