When I was 19, I worked for a home health agency in Omaha, Ne. This job allowed me to grow and find my true path, I love working with people. All people! Between starting this job and completing college, I had the opportunity to form beautiful relationships with so many people that I have held onto till this day. When I graduated with my BA in psychology, I moved to Madison to work in the behavioral health field. I started working on geriatric unit in the state hospital. At the time this was a rough job but one I valued. I have experienced it all and have observed the impact of watching a loved one change or forget who you are. When I moved on to working in the hospital on an adult psychiatric unit, I quickly became the staff who would work with the older patients. I enjoy just being there and when their ready to talk, I love hearing about their life. Of all the jobs I have had working with seniors brings me the most joy.
