Director of Nursing Services

I NOURISH the whole resident—as in mind, body and spirit. As a nurse, I bring high-level clinical professionalism and organizational expertise to The Kensington. Beyond medicine, I go the extra mile to indulge moments that make residents smile and feel loved. I can listen or tell stories. I can be energetic or contemplative. I can handle the good and the bad, without judgment. I believe the time of day is always within reach, so I give it away every chance I get.

Director of Community and Family Services

I RELATE firsthand to the care challenges of seniors and their families. I helped my Mom care for my Dad, who had Lewy Body Dementia. I learned to strike a balance between heartache and joy as we coped together. I share those lessons openly with residents and families to pave the way for meaningful communication. Because I am energetic, upbeat and funny, I bring a lightness of spirit to each exchange. I listen with my ears and my heart, gladly.
