I started at the Heritage Center in 1987 where I worked in the housekeeping department and also worked in laundry. In 2003, I joined the staff at the Village as the Housekeeping Supervisor. In 2005, I left to do something different, but I eventually rejoined the Village, working for Elizabeth. I’ve been with this company for over 30 years. I’ve enjoyed my time with the residents and staff here, and I look forward to what’s ahead!
