Glimpses of the Heart
In high school I volunteered at Boulder Community Hospital, where my mom worked as an RN.
I spent considerable time in geriatrics, and loved every minute. I’m a big listener, and if you take the time to listen to seniors, in particular, you gain so much perspective. My life is richer for their counsel.
The very first senior I admired was Grandma Betty. She had such a love Read more
for life and adventure. At six years old she was diagnosed with polio, and isolated unnecessarily in a hospital for over a year, unable to see family. Despite the trauma, years later, she would still talk about how the staff treated her like family, with dignity and respect. And I, her loving granddaughter, was overwhelmed with appreciation. In fact, these healthcare workers motivated me to become a nurse, seeing the impact I might have on others’ lives.
Dir, Community Relations
More than a decade ago, I entered senior care in the activities department, and discovered I’m
gifted at communicating with the memory-impaired and helping them find joy daily. I learned how precious each senior’s story is, and I value the wisdom and ethics they bring to the world. With experience in skilled nursing, long-term care and assisted living, I’m eager to educate families and guide them through transition. The need for support is so great.

“I would like to extend my gratitude to the caregivers at MorningStar of Wheat Ridge as they provide wonderful, personalized care during the difficult time of hospice. They understand a person’s need who has lost the ability to communicate. This has helped develop trust from the families who are so appreciative of the care you all give. Thank you all for what you do.” (Lutheran Medical Center Hospice)
