Her background encompasses more than 20 years of experience in senior healthcare and living services including skilled nursing, assisted living, personal care and memory care.
I have a personal care home administrators license and an assisted living administrators license. I have worked in many different areas of the communities I managed so I am very fortunate to understand all aspects of senior living.
I am very proud to be part of the team at The Village of LifeQuest and look forward to continuing to ensure this community is the best home for all seniors. We will strive to be our very best every day and create a fun, innovative, safe home for seniors.

Director of Resident Services
I am the single mother of three children and the grandmother of a sweet granddaughter. As a child I have always known I wanted to work in healthcare and be a nurse. In 2002 I began my career in healthcare working as a CNA and HHA and a technical partner before going back to school in 2017. With the support of my family, I graduated nursing school and began my dream job. I have worked in pediatrics, geriatrics, tracheostomy care, ventilators, and rehabilitation.
I love working at The Village at LifeQuest and I am very proud of our team in the nursing department and all we do to care for our residents and each other every day! I am excited to be part of the growth and opportunity here. I look forward to continuing my dream job in this community as the leader of the nursing department.
