ABOUT YOUR ADVISORs
in Mequon & North Milwaukee
Lauren O'Desky, CSA
I grew up just outside Detroit, and headed to Ann Arbor to study philosophy at the University of Michigan. For 10 years, I lived and worked as a legal technology consultant in Chicago, until my husband and I relocated to Milwaukee in 2010. In addition to being at home with our three children, I am a leader in several non-profit organizations focused on making the world a better place.
I have always created deep connections with seniors, beginning with my grandparents and now with the people I meet as a volunteer at a local assisted living home. I enjoy learning about people’s past and care about their present lives.
Finding the right independent, assisted or memory-care community can be stressful, emotional and difficult. As your Oasis Senior Advisor, it would be my honor to be your advocate, making this lifestyle change as seamless, safe and easy as possible for you or your loved one. I promise to help you every step of the way, so that the older adult in your life can continue living theirs.
Courtney Crawford, Senior Care Advisor
I have worked in the Senior Living industry for almost a decade. My background in business strategy and marketing allow me to bring a unique approach to finding solutions for clients and their families.
I was born and raised in Milwaukee and attended the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee for my Bachelors of Business Administration and my Masters of Business Administration. I have served in various roles for both for-profit and non-profit Senior Living communities in the Milwaukee community.
Working with Oasis Senior Advisors allows me to blend my interest in problem solving with my passion for serving others. My favorite part of my day is educating families and guiding them through the myriad of options when it comes to finances, clinical needs, and an overall plan for the future. No one understands how hard it is to navigate the Senior Living and healthcare world until you are part of it; it’s a privilege to help shed some light on the process!
Kaitlyn Malek, Senior Care Advisor
I have a great passion for seniors and understand the importance of proactively planning in making informed decisions about care for an aging loved one. I have worked as the Director of Operations for a geriatric care management company and have managed assisted living communities for the last few years. I started my career in healthcare as a caregiver, I was working hands on with seniors in an assisted living community and have cared for my grandfather who had dementia. I completed nursing and science courses at Alverno College; graduating with a Bachelor of Science in Biology degree.
While having a career in healthcare, I enjoy take a customized approach by working one-on-one with families to manage care for their loved one. While managing assisted living communities, it was important to ensure residents’ care needs were met.
I’m excited to be working as a Senior Advisor at Oasis Senior Advisors because I understand the importance of finding resources that are a great fit for your loved one by taking a customized approach. At Oasis we help families every step of the way on their journey.
Margaret Schultz, MHA
I was born and raised in Milwaukee and left to join the Army right out of High School. I served 12 years as a Combat Medic and Trauma Instructor. I spent my time both stateside and overseas in Haiti and Afghanistan working with various populations focusing on health and safety. During my time in the Army I also obtained degrees in Healthcare Administration. After my last deployment, I began dedicating a lot of my time working and volunteering with various Veteran organizations. Through those organizations, I developed relationships with individuals and their families that I cherish. I have always connected with seniors, starting with the very close relationships I have had with my own grandparents. I love the impact their stories have, and the lessons that they share. I am honored to be able to spend time connecting and assisting seniors and their loved ones as a Senior Advisor with Oasis.
