I graduated from the University of Iowa with a degree in Recreation Therapy (part of the Health, Leisure and Sports Studies Program) with an emphasis in Aging Studies. I spent the first 6 years post-college working in retirement homes and nursing homes as the Wellness and Activities coordinator. I specialized in working in our Memory Care units. In 2010 I was presented with an opportunity to work from home for a tech company and, given I was about to have my first child, accepted the offer. I've been with my company for 10 years and love the flexibility of working from home, but I've missed doing what I'm passionate about. I now have some flexibility on some evenings and weekends to provide services to seniors again, such as in-home assistance, running errands, day trips, meal preparation, companionship... whatever the client and family think is most needed. I would love to help your family while doing what I love!
