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.
