Meet Our Assisted Living Team
Assistant Executive Director
Many of our residents inspire me. Some of them deal on a daily basis with chronic pain and discomfort, yet remain positive and warm in their outlook on life. They seek new ways of mindful living and meditative practices. I am inspired to seek that kind of strength and grace when I am in pain… now and when I am older.
Director of Business Administration
The most rewarding part of my job is being able to provide assistance and guidance to associates and residents. I love our weekly “Happy Hour” program because I get an opportunity to socialize more with the residents.
I enjoy spending time with the residents and listening to them, especially when they share memories of the past, keeping history alive! It’s inspiring to see a wide range of ages and experiences come together as a community. I love coming to work each and every day, and am honored to work with such compassionate associates.
Director of Olmsted Programming
My favorite program to do with residents is the Reminiscing & Music program. I love being able to hear about their pasts and seeing them relive their memories through music is really amazing. Everyday is full of so many rewarding experiences. I love seeing a resident have that “light bulb moment” during a trivia program or sing along during a music program. It really shows that no matter what stage of life you are at, there are still so many learning and enjoyable experiences left.
I first found my passion for working with persons living with dementia and using the creative arts to facilitate communication, highlight strengths and share joy 16 years ago. I completed a graduate-level expressive therapy internship here in the 2004–2005 academic year and I am thrilled to return to Goddard House.
