About Us

"I started my career at The Phoenix Residence in August of 1991 after being stationed overseas in the military. At the time, I was undecided about my medical career and was going to use my experience at Phoenix as a stepping stone for future opportunities. After I graduated, I dabbled in a variety of other medical avenues while always keeping my foot in the door at Phoenix. As the years started to go by, I realized my heart and my passion was working with people with disabilities. After 25 years, I still feel I made the absolute right decision. I love what I do because no two days are ever the same and the friendships made with both staff and individuals served are memorable. This job also has offered flexibility while raising a family. Seeing the strides, positive opportunities, and changes for people with disabilities is what puts a smile on my face and makes me look forward to going to work every day."
