I am often called an “old soul,” so perhaps there is a natural connection. Time spent as a child with my grandparents are cherished memories. Because of them, I feel comfortable around people who are in no rush—who will sit and have a long conversation filled with wisdom that comes from experience. It reminds me of how we should all approach life. When the workday feels overwhelming, I know I need to step away and go sit with a senior. It restores my energy and reminds me why I do this important work. The foundation of MorningStar as a mission-driven company provides great confidence for I know that our efforts span well beyond the walls within which we work.
I began working with seniors 20 years ago. I had no idea how many bonus grandparents would enrich my life! In my mind’s eye, I still think of Clyde every time I see Jolly Rancher candy and remember the stories Bob told me about his experiences in WWII. I fondly remember the fish tales Rita shared from her summers on Lake Erie, and George mailing his latest chess move by postcard to pen-pal opponents across the country. I love getting to know our residents’ children and grandchildren and learning about the amazing things they accomplished. At MorningStar I am excited to be part of a team who is visibly passionate about our company’s mission.
I’ll always remember my grandma, Rose. Our tight-knit family was built on love and respect for your elders. The weekends were spent reminiscing about past adventures, Honey-do lists around Grandma’s house, and the smell of her famous banana cake and chocolate chip cookies. She shared her wisdom with all the children, inspiring us to live life to the fullest and roll with the changes. This bond was so strong that my wife and I honored gave our daughter the middle name Rose.
