I have always had a fondness for seniors. At the young age of 12, I spent the summer taking care of my terminally ill grandmother. I learned so much about her life and what makes each day special. Pine Ridge of Hayes gives me that same rewarding experience each day I spend getting to know our residents. It brightens my day to have a resident stop in my office just to chat about their grandchildren. Together with my husband, we and our 3 sons love to camp, fish or hike through the woods. I enjoy participating with my mother and youngest son in 5k races for causes such as anti-human trafficking, suicide prevention, and war on drugs.
I feel very blessed to have the opportunity to spend my days in such a delightful community! Hearing the resident’s laughter and seeing the fun they have every day truly brightens my day. I developed a heart and passion for seniors early in life growing up next door to my grandparents who shared their lives with me every day. That heart and passion has grown over the last few years while working with and serving seniors through various ministries at my church. Each and every one of them has a fascinating story to tell of their life experiences and I love to listen! I look forward to getting to know each resident and their families, making them a part of my extended family. My husband and I have one grown son and in my spare time I enjoy scrapbooking, being outdoors, and spending time with friends and family.
I’ve worked at Pine Ridge from the time I was 16, and have worn many different hats. It started out as a part time job for a teenager but has grown to be so much more. My love for seniors has given me the opportunity to become the Life Enrichment Director. My heart for seniors shines through in my work, going above and beyond, and making the residents a priority. It is an honor to be able to participate in activities, plan and oversee outings and celebrate every day with our residents. Pine Ridge of Hayes truly is a second home.
I was born in Detroit to a loving traditional Italian family. I was one of 6 children whom my parents were dedicated to raising with faith in God, his love, love of family, and love of others. I have 2 wonderful sons of my own, Jordan Anthony and Brandon Joseph, their beautiful wives and an amazing granddaughter.
As a child my fondest memories come alive as I recall all the beautiful family and friends gathered together at the dining table. The ladies would prepare so many luscious plates, working together so we all could indulge and feel the love in every bite. Until this day this tradition is carried on by next generations. Breaking bread with one another is a joy and a blessing.
It brings me great joy to bring this passion to Pine Ridge of Hayes. I look forward to creating an atmosphere where our residents enjoy dining each day while love, respect, health and well living are shared.
Working in the Corporate world for most of my career provided great learning and development opportunities that helped shape a strong work ethic. As time went by, my desire to climb another step started to become insignificant and empty so I decided to take a leap of faith to pursue a more purposeful job career. After much soul searching I ended up at Pine Ridge of Hayes. I am blessed with the opportunity to help families, who often are overwhelmed, find that “feels right” home where their precious loved one can live each day like they are on a well-deserved vacation. It’s now been nearly seven years and I can honestly say every day is meaningful because I get to share it with our beautiful residents and make a positive difference in their lives.
