In My Own Words…

The best job to have is a job you love, and being the Activity Director for Central Baptist Village is my dream-come-true. I am glad to be in a profession that nurtures creativity at any age; to create and provide the very best programs for our residents to enjoy each and every day. Early on in life I was fortunate to have wonderful and kind Grandparents whom which my brother and I were very close too. It was within those cherished relationships I’ve had that led me down a path in caring for the older adult and a strong desire to help others. Overseeing our wonderful Volunteer Programs is a program that personally and professionally is close to my heart. It offers our residents and Volunteers opportunities to form new lifelong friendships, the giving and receiving of one’s time and talents truly makes that program special. I am very thankful for being a part of a wonderful community here at Central Baptist Village.
