Providing support for caregivers as they navigate through the senior care system is a great honor.  Mt Hood Senior Solutions was created to help caregivers better understand and make educated life decisions with their loved ones.  I started in care as a 19-year-old CNA.  This experience allowed me to understand the inner working of care centers and the daily struggles family caregivers and care recipients go through.   Being a part of the residents’ lives started a lifelong passion for serving caregivers and their families. I perused that passion by working hard on my education and building businesses and a non-profit that provide ethical and compassionate services to those who are most in need.  During my years working with caregivers, I feel blessed to have been trusted to help so many families through their journey.

My family and I have lived locally for 30 years and we have strived to be of value to the community we serve.  I have three grown children, five beautiful grandchildren, and my husband and I love spending time with all of them.  Thank you for entrusting your family needs with me.

I began my career in the senior living profession by chance over 15 years ago and have never looked back. I joined the Mt. Hood Adult Day Center family in 2016 and together we launched Mt. Hood Senior Solutions in 2019. I really enjoy getting to know families and their loved ones. I understand the importance of getting to know your loved one’s personality and preferences, so we can find the best long-term fit. My hope is to alleviate the stress and pressure that comes along with the placement process. I like to approach even the most challenging placements with optimism and support.

I love that we are locally owned and operated, which allows us to provide personalized service.  I enjoy being active in my local community, by fundraising and donating to local nonprofit organizations. When I am not working you can find me kayaking on the Columbia River.

From a young age, I knew that I wanted to work with people. For nearly 30 years, I have worked with seniors, families, veterans, individuals with high medical needs, developmental disabilities, traumatic brain injuries, and those that are experiencing mental illness. My goal is to combine my breadth of experience and education with a personal touch throughout the referral process which offers families reassurance that I will do everything I can to find the right community or home for your loved one.

I understand from personal experience, with my sweet grandmother, that a transition to a new home is never easy for families or their loved ones. My hope is to offer support throughout the process, relieving some of the stress that accompanies the placement process. My favorite part of the work is connecting with seniors and their families. There is nothing better than seeing someone thrive when they get adjusted to their new home. When I’m not working, you can find me at a Disney Theme Park!

Referral Specialist
 

My career in serving older adults began by chance over 10 years ago. I stumbled into an opportunity that has fueled my passion for older adults ever since. I joined Mt. Hood Senior Solutions with extensive expertise in hospice and end-of-life care. Facilitating hospice services between families, communities, and physicians gives me a unique perspective within the long-term care community. My mission is to provide families compassionate advocacy while supporting them in making the best choices with their loved ones while navigating unfamiliar territory. I firmly believe by providing opportunities for older adults to interact and engage within appropriate and safe environments, ensures a greater quality of life.

After a long awaiting promise I made to myself, I returned to Washington State University and completed my BA in Human Development with certificates in Gerontology and Human Services Case Management and Administration in 2020. When I am not working, you can find me hiking trails with my dogs!

Referral Specialist

A part time job at the Sandy Senior Center forty years ago opened my eyes to the needs of seniors and their families as they aged and led to a career and a passion.  Over the years I have worked in independent living, assisted living, skilled nursing and home care throughout the greater Portland area and now I am using my knowledge and understanding of senior services to help families find their way through difficult times of transition.  As a Senior Living Referral Agent, I am thrilled to work with the talented team at Mt Hood Senior Solutions who share my passion to help families.

As a long time resident of Gresham, I have been an active supporter of the schools, mentor for teenage girls, supportive of education for young women, member of the board of low income senior housing and active in my church.  And I find greatest joy spending time with my family and my two dogs.
