When I started working at Cornerstone in 2004 as a caregiver, I never could have imagined that I would one day serve as the facility’s Director of Nursing. Now in this leadership position, I strive to provide high quality care to all residents in order to make the lives of my residents more satisfying. I enjoy working at Cornerstone as it is a challenging environment that provides an opportunity for me to utilize my critical thinking skills while simultaneously allowing me to develop intimate relationships with residents and their families. In this setting, I am able to be present with residents and their families during the happy as well as the more difficult times. Oftentimes, it is simply just being there to hold a resident’s hand or to cry with a family member that matters most to me. It is the greatest feeling in the world to know that I have helped and have made a difference. In my free time away from Cornerstone, I love to spend time with my family. We enjoy a lot of outdoor activities, especially hiking, swimming, riding bikes and camping. On cold winter days, we like to bake cookies similar to those we make at Cornerstone.
