“The move to care management was a natural fit, combining my clinical assessment and management skills, and building upon the network of medical and professional resources that I’ve developed over the years. The most rewarding part of being a care manager is seeing the relief on the faces of family members when I identify their needs and explain the different options and resources available to them in caring for their loved one. Each person has an interesting story, and unique needs. I love finding my role in each individual client’s life, and using my skills and compassion to create a care plan that will help them reach their goals, and enrich their lives.”
