In the 2nd grade, Amy wanted to be a nurse, or a teacher and she believes that being an Administrator offers the best of both of those careers. When she was in High School, she took a regional occupational program course in Certified Nursing and fell in love with the elderly population. While working as a caregiver and someone who passed medications, she found that she not only enjoyed supporting the residents but also helping the team to have a smooth and fun shift. She has worked in almost every role in the assisted living setting during her journey, and she feels this helps her to be a stronger pillar to the staff having known what it is like to walk in those shoes.
Amy really enjoys working with seniors and one of her favorite enjoyments comes from helping people have moments of joy. She is giving back to those who have paved the road for future generations, both literally and figuratively. Amy returned to Compass Senior Living, having worked with them previously, and instantly felt at home. There is a unique close family feeling in this community that made her feel like she was coming home after a long trip.
When not at work, Amy is learning who she is as a mother with adult children. She loves to spend time in the outdoors (but not too much as she was born and raised as a City Slicker). Watching nature as she hikes, or kayaking is how she unwinds and balances her spirit. And when the weather is colder, NFL makes up for lack of outdoor time. She also enjoys watching Football, UFC, Baseball, or binge watching the next best suck you in story, with her significant other.
