Meet the Carefield Pleasanton Team
Senior Executive Director
With over ten years of experience in Senior Living I have served in various positions, from Caregiver to Certified Nursing Assistant, Medication Technician, Receptionist, Business Office/HR Designee, Assisted Living Coordinator/ED Designee. My educational background includes a Bachelor of Science in Psychology and Bachelor of Arts in Human Resource Management.
I joined Carefield Living in 2018. I’m fortunate to have the opportunity to make a positive impact on people’s lives and make a difference every day. I go home each day knowing I made a real difference. I support our community members to grow and strengthen their network of support and friendship, and to gain a greater sense of purpose and belonging. In my free time, I enjoy cooking, baking, reading, and spending time with my family and friends.
Assistant Executive Director
I began working at Carefield in February of 2019 as Business Office Manager then was promoted to Assistant Executive Director. With more than twelve years of experience working at Senior Living Communities and Skilled Nursing Facilities, I have served in various positions from HHA, CNA, Medication Technician, Admission's Coordinator, Human Resources and Sales.
Although my education background is Computer Science, I enjoy volunteering in senior centers and have been an active Volunteer for the Alzheimer's Walk Association for years. It was then that I realized I always had the passion of caring for seniors, so I switched my career to Senior Living. I believe in Carefield's mission and vision and I enjoy working for a company that not only continue to provide the best care for their residents, but also genuinely care for their employees.
In my free time, I enjoy long drive discovering new places, driving along the coast enjoying California's beautiful beaches, watch movies and spending time with my family and friends.
I have proudly joined Carefield Living recently as Sales Director supporting both our Castro Valley and Pleasanton communities.
Growing up on an Oregon farm I was drawn to the Culinary field after college and owned a top ranked catering company in the Bay Area. After becoming a mother, I shifted to working with seniors on end-of-life planning which evolved into a career in senior care. Working continually as a turnaround and outreach specialist for assisted living communities, I have utilized creative event marketing to develop robust and long-lasting community connections.
A mother of three, I am an active member of the Oakland Community, focused on seniors, public education and my place of worship. When not helping seniors, I enjoy spending time in my garden.
I began working for Carefield Living in August 2019. I Graduated from San Francisco State University with a Bachelor of Science in Health Education and Women’s Health. In addition, I Graduated from San Joaquin Delta College with Associate Degrees in Humanities, Interdisciplinary Studies in Social and Behavioral Sciences. As part of Teacher Education Preparation, I have taught Interdisciplinary Studies. In my eight years of experience in sales and customer service I have grown compassionate about the well-being and comfort of the residents. I strive to create a close sense of community, as well as build lasting relationships with their families. I love spending time with my family, traveling, crafting, and caring for my house plants.
