Meet the At Your Place Senior Care Team
Serving Vancouver WA
Owner/President, R.N. Board Certified in Gerontology
“Elders have been the focus of my 30 year nursing career. I obtained my board certification in Gerontology to enhance my knowledge of health and psychosocial issues affecting our clients. My emphasis has been working with seniors and their family members to maintain health and independence. At Your Place has been in business for seven years and we are proud of our deficiency-free state inspections and excellent reputation throughout Clark County. We provide valuable employment to compassionate, ethical and competent caregivers. Having been a resident of Clark County for over twenty years, providing our Elders with peace of mind and quality of life is important to me. I currently serve as a Commissioner on the Clark County Commission on Aging providing advocacy and guidance to county policy makers. I was fortunate to enjoy close relationships with my grandparents as I was growing up. They instilled many important values and an appreciation of the contribution of the generations who have gone before us. Many of the Elders we’ve served have shared wisdom, knowledge and experience with me. It has enriched my life many fold. My husband and I care for our aging parents now and that has given me more empathy for the role and challenges that adult children of aging parents experience. My goal is to continue to provide seniors and their family members peace of mind and quality of life.”
“My very close relationship with both my Mother and Grandmother led me to the Home Care industry. I wanted to be able to help families be family. A lot of our Clients have adult children that are trying to manage more than one household and are sometimes working also. If we can help take care of the day-to-day chores, it allows the families to spend enjoyable time together. One of my favorite things about working in home care is working with Caregivers. Being able to provide a job that not only helps to support their families, but also has a rewarding effect on the soul.
Growing up in Clark County and living here most of my life, volunteering in our community is very important to me. I have served as Secretary for the Firstenburg Meals on Wheels Steering Committee since 2008. I am the Co-Founder of A Caring Closet a non-profit that provides Durable Medical Equipment to those in need on a temporary and permanent basis. I currently serve on the Executive Board for Mobile Healthcare Providers Northwest. I am a 2011 graduate of Leadership Clark County. I was honored to be recognized as one of the 2011 Accomplished and Under 40 recipients by the Vancouver Business Journal and one of the 2015 Women of Distinction from WSU Vancouver. I am an active volunteer for Northwest Association for Blind Athletes, SHARE and Southwest Washington Elder Abuse Prevention. In my spare time I enjoy running and spending time with my husband, two boys and our three dogs.”
