Q: What motivates you to work hard?
A: Our residents, families, and employees. Each of these groups of people motivates me in different ways.
Our residents and our families deserve the best quality of care and I work hard to ensure that happens.
Our employees work hard to provide the highest quality of care and that deserves to be recognized. I do my best to set them up for success by keeping myself informed of the changes in the health care industry so that I can educate our employees when necessary.
Q: What is your favorite book to read?
A: The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho. It is a book about not being afraid of following your dreams! It’s a story about a young man who has dreams to travel the world in search of a “treasure” and it goes on to discuss the challenges that he faces. My favorite quote comes from this book “Tell your heart that the fear of suffering is worse than the suffering itself. And that no heart has ever suffered when it goes in search of its dreams, because every second of the search is a second’s encounter with God and with eternity”. It also touches on finding the silver lining, embracing the present, and how when we strive to become better, everything around us becomes better too!
Q: What are your hobbies?
A: I love cooking and trying out new recipes. I also love to travel and experience different cultures. There are so many things that our world has to offer and I want to see every place I possibly can!!
Q: What’s your favorite holiday?
A: Christmas! I love driving around the neighborhoods and looking at all of the lights. Eating all the good food. Being around friends and family. All of the fun decorations that we put up.
Q: If you had to describe yourself as an animal, which one would it be?
