Why did you choose Mosaic Life Care?

Mosaic Life Care is my home away from home. I have worked here since I was 18 years old. I have matured emotionally, professionally and intellectually during my 20 plus years of service. I cannot imagine working anywhere else. I plan to continue to grow my career and retire from here someday.

What do you consider to be the most unique thing about yourself?

I would say my sense of humor and personality. I try to always stay positive and exude happiness. I'm always cracking jokes and love to make others laugh and feel loved.

What is your passion outside of work?

My animals – I have five dogs and two cats. I hope to one day live in the country and have farm animals.
