Certified Senior Advisor®

Connie Pizarro

Connie began her career in 1982 in the technology division of a retail department store. After 3 ½ years, she resigned to explore opportunities in the financial industry. She spent 29 years in the financial industry and had the opportunity to develop her technical and managerial skills.

One of the goals Connie has for the next chapter in her life is to make a difference in the lives of people. In 2009 her father-in-law passed away, leaving her mother-in-law alone. Two years later, in 2011, her mother-in-law came to live with them, after having survived several strokes. This left her very frail. Connie and her husband cared for her in their home for as long as they could, but eventually, they had to find alternate living arrangements. The task of finding a place was an enormous challenge. They did not know where or how to begin. Connie has learned first-hand the challenges facing families during these difficult transitions. She's also reminded of the responsibilities we have as a society to honor and provide for our seniors.

Oasis is a perfect fit for Connie. It allows her to marry her passion with her career. She is able to help meet a tremendous need that is currently lacking in their community, that of maintaining the dignity and quality of life that our seniors deserve.

Senior Advisor

Pat Brightman

Pat’s passion for Assisted Living was born, like so many, when looking at communities for a family member. The lifestyle offered (to both the residents and their families) inspired her to give up a successful Orthopedic Sales and Marketing company and become an Assisted Living Marketing Director.

Over her 2-decade long career, Pat has earned the trust of over 1000 families in dealing with the journey to Assisted Living and Memory Care. She is fueled by being the experienced and empathetic guide that can turn hesitancy and inaction into a better quality of life for the whole family.

When not working, Pat can be found in the Kitchen, cooking and baking for and with friends. Carrot cake anyone?

Community Liaison

Audrey Taffet

Audrey has significant experience with elder care planning both professionally and personally.

For more than a decade, Audrey served as the Sales and Marketing rep for the Visiting Nurse Association of Somerset Hills, which provided home health care, nursing and therapy, to seniors at home. She developed relationships with all the local skilled nursing facilities and assisted-living facilities. She also managed the Adult Day center located in Basking Ridge, which provided a safe and stimulating environment for seniors, many with cognitive issues.

Closer to home, she and her sister managed their mother’s successive relocations, required as Mom required more care and assistance. This challenging process made her realize the importance of having expert guidance and advice in planning Senior care, and choosing between all the various options for Senior Living.

Oasis Senior Advisors fulfill a critical need faced by seniors and their families facing the task of smooth and successful transitions.
