ABOUT YOUR ADVISORS IN ROGUE VALLEY
Senior Living Advisor
I was born and raised in the Rogue Valley. After graduating from Warner Pacific College in Portland with a degree in Human Biology and competing in basketball and volleyball, I returned to my roots. It will always be home for me and now I get to raise my family here while doing what I love. I have two incredible, wild and funny little ones and an amazing life partner. I come from a large family who was very involved in athletics and activities. I enjoy playing with my kids and spending time outdoors with my family and garden.
My love for the senior community began as an in-home caregiver after I returned home from college. It was an incredible journey and will always be the most humbling time of my life-a true gift. After seeing a client through end of life, I was asked to be the community outreach person for that Home Health and Hospice company. I facilitated home services for patients in Josephine, Jackson and Klamath county for almost 6 years. Through this I gained many longtime friendships. When my second child was born, I took a position at a local assisted living community helping families find safe and comfortable living for their loved ones. I worked with them for almost 4 years. While working at the assisted living community, I had the opportunity to work with the Oasis team and was consistently impressed with the level of integrity, professionalism and care they always displayed. It is hard to put into words the excitement I feel about being a part of the Oasis group. For me, it is the perfect opportunity to give back to the community I live in and love. I look forward to coming alongside families as a trusted partner in the search to find the perfect home to meet the needs and desires for their loved ones.
Senior Living Advisors
I was raised on the Oregon Coast, and I attended boarding school in Monterey, CA and in Phoenix, AZ. I began my interest in serving my community through volunteering early in life. I enjoyed feeding the homeless and helping paramedics to stabilize patients. During high school, I lived back at our family ranch on the coast. It was during this time that I became a volunteer firefighter. I then continued my education to obtain my EMT Basic and EMT Intermediate certification—once again going to work to serve my community.
In 2003, I married my husband Sean and we relocated to Medford. Shortly thereafter, we were blessed with our daughter Gracie. I began work at a local memory care unit as the assistant manager. I enjoyed the residents immensely, and still often consider them fondly. In 2007, I was offered the opportunity to be the Resident Manager of Gracious Living Adult Foster Home. The residents who lived with us became family. When the owners retired in 2017, I couldn’t see myself working with any other population.
I had the good fortune to meet Breanna and Seth of Oasis Senior Advisors. It was not only a wonderful opportunity, but also a pleasure to meet such compassionate people. They take pride and the utmost care in placing their clients. In collaborating with them, I will strive to make each client feel at ease, and help each one with this sometimes difficult decision. When the need for care arises, families are often overwhelmed. Not just with concern for their ailing loved one, but with the many choices for care. I am happy to be serving my community once more by helping clients and their loved ones find a home where they can heal.
