About Your Elder Care Specialist
I am a graduate of California State University, Sacramento with a bachelor's degree in Social Work. I have been in the social work field for over 25 years with a focus on mental health.
I joined the senior industry in 2013, working in the nonmedical in-home care arena as well as senior placement. I was certified as an RCFE Administrator early in my career, so I could understand the licensing requirements, set forth by the State of California. I have additional training in dementia care, behavior management, care management, and hospice care.
I have been a family caregiver. I have been in the position of caring for a sick spouse. I have cared for 3 aging parents. On a personal note, I have experienced more loss than the average person. I have compassion for families stepping into the role of parenting their parents and trying to raise a family while caring for their loved ones.
