Grandpa Clifford ("Papa") lived with us when I was growing up. As his sidekick, we did everything together. Our time together helped to shape my passion for serving seniors. In his honor I made this my professional mission. Seniors teach me compassion, patience, acceptance and joy in the little things. I feel blessed to have so many extended grandparents from whom I learn wisdom every day.
I have been fortunate to serve seniors my entire nursing career. I love providing a quality of care that enhances and enriches their lives. Truly, an amazing experience! I couldn’t imagine myself working anywhere else as a nurse. Seniors have taught me to enjoy life as much as you can, never sweat the small stuff, laugh a lot, complain less and never take anything for granted, especially time. I continue to be impressed by our team members who go above and beyond to give love, respect, honesty, fairness, goodness and kindness to enrich the lives of our residents.
When I was little, my mom and I would always help our elderly neighbor, Dorothy. My mom explained to me how every part of our lives, cars, roads, buildings, technology, and our freedom, were built and created by those who came before us and helping them now, when things are a little harder for them, is a great way to show our thanks. I don’t see my role as a job at all, but as a passion. How thankful I am to work for a company that supports that passion and allows me to do the right thing for those we serve as we branch out and help others in need through the MorningStar Foundation.
