As a Nurse’s Aide at the age of 19 while attending college, Joann experienced what it felt like to be at the caring end of the spectrum as she came face to face with seniors. Over the course of seven years she experienced every facet in the Assisted Living Industry, from being a home health aide, to coordinating resident care services, to running the kitchen, helping in housekeeping and passing medications.
Today, she finds that working with people has made a profound difference in her life. “I have passion and energy to share with the senior population,” she says. “I believe people are meant to be with people constantly, building relationships and connecting.”
In addition to being a Certified Assisted Living Administrator and Certified Dementia Practitioner, Joann is a certified Master Reiki Practitioner and Integrative Energy Practitioner. She is also a Master Transition/Leadership Coach. She lives in Morris County with her family and continues to enjoy music, the beach, time with family and friends, cooking, outdoors, dancing, arts, mediation, and believes in Whole Person Wellness.
