Senior Marketing Director
Catalina Springs Memory Care
“I have been in the Senior Living industry for going on my 10th year this year.
I got started right out of college, sort of by accident. A family friend was volunteering in the dementia unit at a local Assisted Living, and they had an opening for an Activities Assistant which she thought I would be great at. I applied, was hired and the rest is history.
I have a passion for working with residents with dementia and Alzheimer’s, as through my high school years, my grandmother was a primary caregiver for her father, my 94-year-old great-grandfather who was suffering with dementia. That was my first close experience with the disease, but I have since had other family members diagnosed.
Through my work, and in my volunteering with the Alzheimer’s Association through the Walk to End Alzheimer’s, I’ve become even more passionate about educating people on the disease and stripping away the fear that so many have.
I am now the Marketing Director at Catalina Springs Memory Care, where we specialize in care for seniors with Alzheimer’s and other dementias, and specifically work to bring joy and purpose to their lives through our SPARK programming.”
