We have an amazing team of professionals that are all dedicated to improving the lives of our clients and their families. Each and every day, our team is dedicated to pursuing our Mission and upholding our Values.
I first became aware of the devastating effects of Alzheimer’s disease ten years ago when my grandmother was diagnosed with this disease. I saw firsthand how critical it was to have a loving family or caregiver to ensure my grandmother’s safety and daily well-being. My grandmother was fortunate enough to have close family members who cared for her as her Alzheimer’s disease progressed.
Since then, I have had a strong interest in helping and supporting our senior community as they age and are unable to care for themselves. Coming from a family of physicians, I am excited to be involved in the medical community by providing the highest levels of non-clinical in-home care to our clients and their families. With my work experience, I firmly believe that ApexCare can touch many lives and have a great impact on our local senior community.
Prior to joining ApexCare, I worked in a wide variety of industries and have owned multiple businesses ranging from construction to mortgage banking. Outside of work, I am an active youth soccer and basketball coach, having coached recreational soccer for over 8 years and elementary school basketball for over 4 years. I graduated with a BS in Economics from the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania and received a Masters of Management degree from the Kellogg Graduate School of Management at Northwestern University. My career has been focused on building great organizations that deliver the highest absolute levels of service to our clients. I look forward to continuing this passion with ApexCare.
I have seen firsthand how quality care can make a huge impact on seniors’ lives. My grandfather, who is 100 years old, has been fortunate enough to have the same full-time caregiver for over five years now. His caregiver has become a part of our family and we are grateful that her compassionate care has truly enhanced my grandfather’s quality of life. Through ApexCare, my goal is to provide the highest level of care to clients just like my grandfather.
Prior to joining the ApexCare team, I graduated from UCLA with a BA in Business Economics and earned a Masters of Management from Northwestern University. I have worked in a variety of industries and companies, including Deloitte as a CPA and Hewlett Packard as a marketing and product manager. Most recently, I owned a lifelong learning business for six years in Sacramento. One of my strengths was finding the best instructors in the area and working with them to provide relevant and enriching classes to adult learners. I also enjoy volunteering at our children’s school and am currently President of the school’s Parent Association.
I look forward to bringing my experience and skills to ApexCare and making a difference in the lives of our clients!
Growing up, I was lucky enough to have a very close relationship with my grandmother that helped shape my respect and admiration for seniors. Over time, she developed dementia, and I saw her go through various stages of care. That acted as my introduction to the field of senior care.
During my time in college, I had a challenging time trying to determine what area of the healthcare industry I wanted to focus on. When I was finally introduced to the Gerontology program, I knew I had found my calling. I graduated with my BS in Gerontology in 2005 and started my career in the industry working at an Adult Day Health Center where I worked for six years. I achieved my Certified Senior Advisor status in 2013.
Throughout my career I have seen how important it is for seniors and caregivers to have a strong support system and that is why I am thrilled to be a part of the ApexCare team.
I have been working in the older adult community since 2010. My first opportunity to work with seniors was at an assisted living facility in Roseville. In this administrative capacity, I worked directly with seniors and their families on a daily basis. I learned a great deal about the different aspects of aging and senior care. I quickly found that my personality and passions were well matched with the families that I worked with and I fell in love with this industry.
In 2015, I was given the opportunity to work for ApexCare in their accounting department. This was a great opportunity for me to continue working with older adults and to also learn a new skill. Since then, my roles and responsibilities in accounting have grown and I now have taken on the position of Accounting Manager with ApexCare. I feel very fortunate to be working in accounting, which I thoroughly enjoy, while still working with the older adult community.
When I am not at work, my two teenage children keep me busy with their after-school activities such as soccer and cross-country meets, piano lessons and band competitions, etc. In my free time, I enjoy cooking, traveling, hiking and yoga.
Sacramento / Placer Team
Ever since I can remember, I have always had a connection with people who were older than me. I truly enjoyed spending time with my grandparents. The things I remember the most were listening to their fascinating stories, playing games, and most importantly, learning valuable lessons from their experiences.
Given my passion for working with people, it is quite natural and logical that my career evolved and led me to working in the senior care industry. I found my first professional opportunities in the staffing and recruiting industry and ended up specializing in staffing for healthcare companies. I truly enjoyed this experience and believe that it positioned me well to understand the needs of our clients and referral partners.
After working in the healthcare staffing industry, I also worked as a Field Care Manager in the in-home care industry for 3 years. In this capacity, I provided customer service for seniors and their families, wrote care plans, and conducted quality assurance home visits among other things. Currently, I am honored to be working as the Client Service Manager for ApexCare, which provides me with opportunities to promote seniors’ health and independence.
I have worked in the In-Home Care industry for over 17 years. In this timeframe, I have worked in a variety of roles. These roles and responsibilities include caregiving, training caregivers, recruiting and hiring caregivers, and supervising caregivers. I have also taken the opportunity to represent ApexCare at a variety of community and recruiting events all throughout the Sacramento region.
I have always believed that my outgoing personality and fun nature have always been a great fit for working in this industry. I believe that laughter and a smile go hand-in-hand with compassion and a kind heart. Over the years, I have had the good fortune to work hands-on with families and their loved ones who truly benefited from my positive attitude, knowledge and assistance.
These attributes are just a couple of reasons why I believe that I have been able to have such a positive impact on our clients and caregivers. Each and every day, I embrace all that it takes to provide the best services possible to those we service. I am thankful to also work with such an amazing team of professionals here at ApexCare.
Community Relations Manager
I have had the honor of working with our amazing ApexCare team since early 2015. I have many years of experience working and coming along side families in the Critical Illness insurance industry and also in healthcare products and services.
I’ve always had a special love for our precious senior community. I know firsthand the stress of caring for sick and elderly family members. I value the trust that families give us when assisting them find solutions for their care needs. I enjoy volunteering with our local organizations that provide resources and services to our seniors.
In my free time, I love to spend time with my husband gardening, hiking, kayaking and playing with our first grandchild.
I have a great tenderness for the elderly which goes back to my childhood and the influences of not only grandparents, but great- and great-great grandparents. That influence has given me deep-rooted feelings of love and respect for the elderly. My affection and passion has continued as I have worked in the senior care field for over 15 years.
My background ranges from serving in the private sector (one-on-one within private homes), to facility experience in both Assisted Living and Memory Care as a Med Tech, to supervising caregivers at the in-home care agency level.
Having the background of personally caring for and interacting with seniors has given me insight to understand care needs as well as personality differences between our Home Care Aides and clients, and the importance of making a good match. I am proud to be a part of ApexCare, the premier home care agency of this area, and look forward to serving the needs of our Home Care Aides and clients for many years to come.
Yolo/ Solano Team
Community Relations Manager
My own amazing grandparents were the source of my inspiration to work in the senior care industry. There was no place on earth better than visiting my grandparents’ house on the farm. I have a great appreciation for the hard road that was paved by past generations and the spirit of sacrifice and responsibility that they had for their families and neighbors. They are truly the greatest generation.
There is no other work I would rather be doing than serving seniors and their families. I have had the honor to do so since 1986 when I opened one of the first care communities in the State of California to exclusively serve people with Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias. Serving people living with a dementia has been my passion ever since.
I love to teach care partners, families and the community about Alzheimer’s disease. I am a true believer that “knowledge is power” and that Alzheimer’s is less scary when you are informed. I am a very proud mother of two incredible grown young men, a beautiful daughter in law, one very adorable granddaughter, 1 dog left by incredible son (college dog) and two grand pups.
Currently I serve on the Yolo Healthy Aging Alliance Board of Directors and am a member of the Solano Senior Coalition. This year, I am co-chair of the Solano Walk to End Alzheimer’s planning committee and a member of the Alzheimer’s Association Congressional Advocacy Team in Yolo/Solano counties.
I began my professional career with Ames Fire and Water Works as an administrative assistant and human resources liaison. In 2011, my uncle suffered from a traumatic brain injury that caused him to require daily comprehensive care including personal care, cooking, housekeeping, and shopping. Given the needs of my Uncle and other personal circumstances, I took on a primary role as a caregiver for my Uncle.
It was this rewarding experience as a caregiver for my Uncle that introduced me to importance and positive impact of in-home care. In 2012, I decided to join Support for Home as a caregiver so that I could work with a variety of clients with different needs and conditions. In 2017, I had the wonderful opportunity to join the office team at ApexCare as a Care Coordinator, which allows me to leverage my personal caregiving experiences to have a positive impact on other caregivers.
Outside of work, I enjoy hot air balloon races, cooking for family and friends, and making cookies annually with my mom for Christmas gifts. You can usually find me decorating my home or gardening and playing with my two dogs, Gracie and Peaches.
I have been privileged to have worked in the healthcare Industry for over 20 years in multiple fields ranging from pediatric to senior care. My time spent in senior care, however, had been the most impactful on my personal life, especially when I found myself caring for my ailing grandmother who suffered from Dementia.
After receiving my AA in Science, my caregiving experience began with my working for a Traumatic Brain Injury Rehabilitation center as a Life Skills Trainer. I am grateful for this experience as this position challenged me to provide the highest levels of care while under the most difficult situations. From there, I spent time in both Acute and Pediatric care before coming the Master Scheduler and Team Lead for a 30 bed Alzheimer’s and Dementia ward at St. John’s Retirement Facility.
I am so pleased to be part of the ApexCare team. It is my goal to provide both kind and compassionate care to our clients and to create lasting relationships with their families.
San Joaquin / Stanislaus Team
I moved back to Northern California in 2014 after spending most of my career in real estate administration, office management, and accounting. While searching for an administrative position, an ad for Care Manager sparked my interest. I wanted to learn more about assisting our elderly and what in home care has to offer them.
I am so grateful I took that leap of faith and was offered the position with ApexCare. I have learned so much in the past 3 years about how important it is for our elderly to be able to remain in their own home and as we say, “Age in Place”. I feel honored that I am able to provide some resources to clients and their families during a time that is often stressful and overwhelming.
I feel my greatest and proudest achievement in life is my family. I couldn’t be prouder of my two daughters and my 6-year-old grandson, who definitely has won over grandma’s heart and is the love my life.
During my free time, you probably will find me at the gym working out, taking a spin or yoga class or outdoors on a bike ride or a hike. My goal is to keep physically fit so I am able to “Age in Place” when the time comes.
My plan is to finish out my career with this wonderful company, hoping along the way, I can make a small difference in the lives of our most precious asset, our elderly community.
Community Relations Manager
It is such a privilege to meet and to work with our senior community. I cherish memories of my grandparents telling me stories of their lives and how much I learned from their experiences. I personally cared for my father before he passed away and continue to care for my mother and older sister. I know first-hand how emotional it is to make decisions for their care.
I have been living in the San Joaquin Valley all my life. In 2001, I started working for Apexcare. I enjoy assisting the elderly and their families with decisions to stay in their home or help them in choosing an assisted living facility. I’m always ready and willing to go the extra mile to make a difference in the lives of seniors.
Currently, I am a Community Board Member of St. Joseph Dignity Home Health Care, a Member of the Stockton and Manteca Chamber of Commerce, a Certified Geriatric Care Manager and Certified Aqua Aerobics Instructor.
I look forward to my visits with my children and grandchildren who live in Oregon and Missouri. The past 10 years I have been an aqua aerobics instructor. I also enjoy working with children in my local church.
When I was 19 years old a friend told me about a job opening with her company at an Assisted Living in Modesto and being young I never thought I would work somewhere like that, but I went and applied. From the first day I started I knew this was a job I was going to love. I worked my way from being a Caregiver, to a Medication Assistant, then to the Lead Medication Assistant.
An opportunity came to transfer to our sister community in Manteca in their Memory Care and I jumped at it. Again, it was something I had never done but wanted the challenge. I once again fell in love and wanted to go further. A few years later I became the Assisted Living Manager. Being a part of the resident's life, making a difference in their quality of life and seeing how happy it made the family made everyday worthwhile.
After almost 11 years with the company I decided to take some time off and spend time with my family. When I was ready to get back to work I wanted to go into a different aspect of helping the elderly. I was blessed to be offered a job with ApexCare and could not be happier. The staff at ApexCare are amazing and wonderful to work with. I am excited to see what my future holds with this great company.
When I am not working all my free time goes to my amazing 8 year old son, spending time with family and friends.
Community Relations Manager
It has been my honor to assist and serve the Senior community for the last 15 years in Stanislaus and surrounding counties. During the 15 years working in the home care industry I have had the privilege to partner in community with so many incredible, passionate members of the community that have the same passion as myself including the Alzheimer Association, Area Agency on Aging, the Veterans Administration and all of the wonderful member of the community that are here to assist our seniors. We have touched so many families and seniors as they have touched me with their life stories.
Prior to working the home care industry, I worked in the durable medical equipment industry that has given me the knowledge to be sure that our seniors are safe in their homes.
When you catch me away from work, you will find me swimming, kayaking and enjoying the outdoors. I am proud of the work that Apex Care provides and thankful for the amazing home care aide's that assist our seniors in their home and keep them safe.
