I am excited to begin a new journey with Moosehaven as the Director of Resident Services as Helen Taylor moves to her new role as Executive Director. I have worked at Moosehaven as the Social Services Director since 2007 and love it.
I grew up in a small town, one of 5 children. I have always enjoyed helping others. I attended Southern Illinois University for my 4 year degree and earned my Masters Degree at Southwestern Seminary in Texas. I originally planned to do foreign mission work.
I met my husband, Tim, at grad school and he planned to be a youth minister. We worked with teenagers in his ministry for years. My first social work position was in Titusville, FL at Jess Parrish Hospital. My first position in Long Term Care was in 1999 at Mariner of MacClenney.
After working in several other communities and facilities, I can say with absolute certainty that Moosehaven operates the way Long Term Care should be. We pay for hearing aids, glasses, dentures, copays, etc. There are no worries for the residents and our fraternity is very generous to us.
I look forward to working with my new department and continuing to work with Helen and her team.
