I began my career in 1982 in the technology division of a retail department store. After 3 ½ years, I resigned to explore opportunities in the financial industry. I spent 29 years in the financial industry and had the opportunity to develop my technical and managerial skills.
One of the goals I have for the next chapter in my life is to make a difference in the lives of people. In 2009 my father-in-law passed away, leaving my mother-in-law alone. Two years later, in 2011, my mother-in-law came to live with us, after having survived several strokes. This left her very frail. My husband and I cared for her in our home for as long as we could, but eventually we had to find alternate living arrangements. The task of finding a place was an enormous challenge. We did not know where or how to begin. I’ve learned first-hand the challenges facing families during these difficult transitions. I’m also reminded of the responsibilities we have as a society to honor and provide for our seniors.
Oasis is a perfect fit for me. It allows me to marry my passion with my career. I am able to help meet a tremendous need that is currently lacking in our community, that of maintaining the dignity and quality of life that our seniors deserve.
