Why the senior industry:
Appreciation, Respect, and the Stories I think it is the appreciation and respect I have for people of this generation that drew me to this line of work. ‘The Greatest Generation’ has been through so many significant events for one lifetime. Hearing their stories is always a treat.
What you love about Carlton Senior Living:
That is simple, it’s the people. Carlton has a family feel, and I believe it’s because the people care for each other and genuinely care for their residents.
Hobbies or interest:
I love sports of all kinds, but as I mature I find myself participating less and watching more. I used to participate in triathlons, swimming, water polo, and running, but now I’m turning more toward golf, walking the dogs and the gym.
Special note or message:
I was I Navy brat, born in Iwakuni Japan and went to high school in SoCal. I worked as a lifeguard in Huntington Beach, as a paramedic and firefighter for thirty years, and have been teaching disaster preparedness before getting the opportunity to join Carlton.
