NJ State Registered Professional Nurse
Geriatric Care Manager
After graduating from college, I started my career in business working as a bank officer in New York City. I enjoyed banking, but the hours were long and after my first child was born, I wanted to have more time at home raising my family.
At the same time, my mother became very ill. I was touched by the caring, compassionate and knowledgeable nurses who cared for my mom during her struggle with cancer. I also remember how the nurses involved our family and helped to alleviate our fears. This experience drew me in, and I felt called to become a nurse myself. I wanted to be able to provide this same caring and support to other families.After I became a Registered Nurse, I found that the long-term care environment was my special niche. In a nursing home, I had the opportunity to develop relationships with the residents and their families and work with the team to develop individualized care plans for each resident. Being in a position to improve the lives of others was extremely satisfying.
For the 17 years prior to my joining the Peace Aging Care Experts team, I served as the Director of Nursing at a large, five-star nursing home. I feel blessed to have had the opportunity to help create a care environment that made a positive impact on so many people in their time of need.
Being a part of the “PeACE Team” allows me to continue to use my skills, nursing experience, and compassion in my role as a geriatric care manager. I enjoy being part of a company with a philosophy that embraces advocacy for seniors and others with disabilities.Back to Team Page
