Executive Director

I SOOTHE residents by finding creative ways to preserve their dignity and sustain their independence as they face challenges navigating life with dementia. I lead with compassion as I support families and guide my team. My Grandma, Delia, had vascular dementia, and inspired me to persevere in developing lifestyle solutions for seniors experiencing the effects of memory loss. With training and experience as a Music Therapist, Independent Trainer in Positive Approach to Care, Support Group Leader and team builder, I am an agent of optimism and opportunity for my residents, families and team.  Music is one of my favorite ways to bring residents joy, comfort and pleasure.

Director of Memory Care

I NURTURE resident, family and team. I understand the dignity of each person and ensure it is upheld every day in every way.  I partner with caregivers to deliver compassionate care.  My passion for seniors began when I had the privilege of caring for my grandfather in the last years of his life. I understand the pain and mourning a family feels when their loved one is dealing with memory loss, but also celebrate the joy in creating moments of connection.  I have many hobbies, but my favorite is playing the ukulele. I find music brings everyone together and I love connecting to my residents through music! I am deeply passionate about residents engagement and activities.  I make every moment count for my residents and to love them like my own family.

I FLAVOR every dish I prepare with delicate seasonings, savory herbs, and most of all, love.I began cooking for seniors when I was a teenager and am elated every time they are guests at my table. I make sure I know what they like and what they need nutritionally to be well and stay well. I routinely manipulate recipes to accommodate specialized dietary requirements, without compromising taste, texture and aroma. I strive daily to deliver a mealtime experience that leaves each diner happy, satisfied, healthy and eager to join me again tomorrow.

Business Office Manager

I ORCHESTRATE a strong workforce behind the scenes in our community. I began my career with Kensington when we first opened and always knew, this was a community filled with love. I have navigated through positions here at Kensington starting as a care manager where I learned to love and care for our residents, I then transferred to concierge where I was able to properly communicate with our residents, residents families and team members. Eventually I found myself working as the Business Office Assistant where I learned the metrics of what makes a great community both operationally and financially. Using these experiences, I have a desire to grow our community team members to be the best they can be, as well as maintaining a tight financial overview of our community.

Throughout my professional career, I have led by example and continue to do so at Kensington Place. I focus on the health of our residents, pay attention to the individual needs and I am an advocate for those who don’t have a voice. My nurturing personality is to see each residents care as I would care for my own family.
