Hi hi!

My journey in the world of dementia care has been nothing short of a calling. It all began when I started on the floor at 18, after my freshman year in college. I quickly learned the invaluable lessons of love and compassion while caring for individuals with Alzheimer’s. Over the years, I gained medical experience and transitioned into the role of a Med Tech, further solidifying my dedication to this field. I also discovered a new passion: cooking!

As my passion for dementia care continued to grow, I embarked on a journey that led me to become the manager of the Conroe community, then Cypress once we opened. From there, I took on a regional role before landing my current position as the Culture and Training Coordinator for Village Green, alongside serving as one of the Directors of Operations. I am often asked what my responsibilities are and can confidently say just about everything! I am always available for residents, my team, and the families that are navigating through this difficult journey.

I've always been driven by a deep-seated passion for caring for those who need it the most. It's my life's mission to advocate for individuals living with dementia and to educate others on important aspects such as dementia sensitivity, effective communication, compassion, empathy training, and medication administration. It’s important to remember that dementia can take away everything except you make someone feel. Love should always be unconditional.

My academic background includes studying Psychology at Baylor University, with a Pre-Med focus, which provided me with valuable insights into the complexities of human behavior and cognition. My plan (before falling in love with memory care) was to enlist in the military as a combat medic and come back to become a trauma surgeon. In recognition of my expertise in the field, I hold certifications as a Certified Assisted Living Manager (CALM) and a Certified Dementia Practitioner (CDP).

Beyond my professional endeavors, I'm an animal lover through and through, who dedicated seven wonderful years to the world of rescue. I am always looking for the bright side of every situation. The world is full of beauty, you just have to be open to it. I’m a lover of Classic Literature, History, and Science. Family is at the core of everything I do, and I'm incredibly blessed to have some of the best friends who continually support and inspire me. And a special thank you to RA, for showing me a whole new world of love.

Lastly, I want to to thank my residents who have made my darkest days brighter and lifted my heart when it was heaviest. I’m not sure what life would be like without the warmth that they shared-the purest and most vulnerable kind of love. For those residents who are now at peace, not a day goes by that I don’t think about you.

In this picture, we have Bella, our longest VG resident! Bella was rescued from the Houston SPCA in 2016 at 6 weeks old. Bella is a companion to every resident, family member, and team member here at Village Green. She makes our house a home, and we are so blessed to have her.
