I joined the team at Avante at Leesburg in 2019. I have been in the long-term care field since 2012 with a degree in healthcare management and a background in admissions and marketing. I started my admissions career and then discovered my true passion when my grandparents required long-term care placement. I became a family member on the other side. I wanted to become a nursing home administrator with a compassionate team that strives for person-centered care through my personal experience. I am dedicated to empowering my employees to strive daily for exceptional customer service and growth.
The highlight of my day is when I can spend one on one time with our residents, sharing stories of their past. When I am not spending time getting to know our residents, I spend time with my husband and three beautiful daughters.
I am the Director of nursing at Avante of Leesburg. I began my nursing career in 2014 as an LPN working with geriatrics. My experience includes working in a hospital setting in the E.R., med-surg, telemetry, and outpatient departments. I moved to Labor and Delivery in 2016 when I obtained my R.N. license. I returned to geriatrics when I realized it is my true passion. I joined the Avante team on August 1, 2018. I began my journey as a floor nurse and have worked diligently to become the Director of Nursing. Our Interdisciplinary team has brought our facility Quality Measures from a 3 star to a 4-star facility. We are also JCAHO accredited.
Since taking this role in February, my team and I have guided the nursing team through the covid-19 pandemic. We are continuing to build upon our family environment through teamwork and support of one another. Henry Ford once said, "Coming together is a beginning, keeping together is progress, and working together is a success.
