My passion for public health started shortly after I graduated high school. So, I chose a degree that could help me accomplish that. I graduated from Sacramento State University with a degree in Biochemistry. After various different positions and jobs and recent work as an EMT, helping people of various ages and communities, I decided I would like to assist and care for our older generation in the Assisted Living setting. I was very excited and thankful when I was allowed the opportunity to become the Wellness Director of Oakwood Village this last March of 2021. It is a beautiful community dedicated to serving its residents and staff alike. I hope to serve the community and use my skills, personality, and humor to help it thrive even more. Welcome to Oakwood!
