Regional Director of Operations
Serving on the UALA board is the next step in my pursuit of serving seniors for life. For over 30 years, I have been working on improving the quality of life for seniors. The first position that I held was as an Activity Director. In this position, I quickly learned how much joy it brings me to serve the vulnerable and how much they need true advocates. Since then, I have studied and dedicated my life to advocating for others. Volunteering and serving on the Board of Directors for UALA will further my lifelong goal of advocating and improving the lives of seniors in Utah.
In my current position in SAL management, I serve as a Regional Director of Operations. Receiving the opportunity to work alongside such professional Executive Directors and their teams, I have increased my understanding of their impact on our senior residents, most of the time unseen. I feel like I can bring a voice to these spectacular situations for Utah to see.
As an SSW, I have served in all levels of care, Skilled Nursing Facilities, Intermediate Care Facilities, and Assisted Living Communities. My experience enabled me to understand what seniors need at every level and the importance that assisted living offers to ensure that residents maintain a high quality of life. Working with seniors every day, I see and understand what it takes to continue providing excellent care. I believe that by serving on the UALA board, I can help advocate for best practices at the state level and in every community that has championed serving seniors.
