About Mara

I learned at a young age that I truly loved people and "doing" for them. I believe that was the reason I was so successful in our hospitality business. Meeting all types of personalities and caring to their needs was always my pleasure. I have gravitated to the elderly for more years than I can remember. Perhaps because the businesses we (my husband & I had) catered to were mostly retired clientele. What I enjoy most is knowing I am making a positive difference in the life of the individual I have been entrusted to care for and watch over. I am proud of the fact I have developed many long lasting, loving relationships with people I have met throughout my life time. I am a good friend and listener and I deeply love my life, family and friends and I am most grateful for the many wonderful opportunities I have experienced.

Owner/Manager D'Mara Resort & Angler's Wharf

Jan 1984 - Oct 2002
Self Employed
As owners, (my husband and I) were responsible for all aspects of running the business ranging from budgeting, purchasing, profit and loss, personnel management, reservations, marketing and advertising in addition to daily operations. The resort was open year round, with our main business occurring between May and October. The marina was open between April (or as soon as the ice was off) and October of each season. In the off season, I was entrusted to watch over a number of private vacation homes that were on or around the lake area and kept house keys for the owners. Many of our clients were older retirees and it was during these years I came to realize how much I enjoyed helping and "doing" for them.

I have always had a heart for caring for people but my passion grew stronger when my mother passed away. I love being able to help a love one with everyday living. Not only assisting them with everyday care but keeping them as independent as possible. There are many things that keep me interested in being a caregiver but the most important one,I can be there for someone else's love one. I am a certified nursing assistant of 6 years,4 years of mental health and geriatric.
