I graduated magna cum laude with a bachelor’s degree in social work (BSW) from Buffalo State College. My experience includes over 25 years of working with the senior population primarily in nursing home settings. My positions have included activities assistant, rehab discharge planner and Director of Social Work Department(s). In 2014 I left nursing facilities to pursue social work in the private sector with a private care management firm where I became a nationally Certified Geriatric Care Manager (CMC). By creating Aging Well Care Management, LLC in 2019, I have continued my passion for working with the senior population. I am an active member of the Network In Aging, Erie County Caregiver Coalition and the Coalition of Agencies Serving the Elderly (C.A.S.E). Since 2017 I have served on the Executive Board of the Kenmore United Methodist Preschool where I am also a children’s Sunday School teacher. In my free time, I enjoy being with my two boys and my husband of 17 years.
