Aurelie joined Chelsea in February, 2017, with extensive experience as a sub-acute nurse for Alaris Health NJ, and as a home health nurse with the VNA Health Group. She also worked for Sunrise Senior Living as a Lead Medication Aide for six years.
Aurelie earned her nursing degree at Muhlenberg Nursing School, Plainfield, NJ, and a Bachelor’s degree in sociology in her native country, Cameroon. Her passion for geriatric care grew while she was taking care of her grandmother who went through years of senile dementia. Today, ensuring elderly dignity and self-worth are among her top priorities.
Aurelie immigrated in the US in 2007 and she currently resides in Edison, NJ, with her 7-year old son. Doing crafts is her main hobby and she proudly reveals having her own power tools!
“I’m not afraid of any project,” she says. “Home repairs, furniture refinishing. I’ve been fixing stuff since I was very young.”
