Amanda, though new to geriatric and long-term care, isn’t a stranger to the challenge of helping people in need. As a Special Education teacher, she taught high school students with severe needs.
Today, her experience as a Special Education teacher helps her to identify and understand older persons’ needs. “The care level for students with special needs can be similar and even more significant than geriatric population. I bring a wealth of knowledge from Special Ed that translates well into geriatric and long-term care.”
That knowledge serves her well as the Human Resource manager. She hires and manages caregivers, customer service personnel, and helps with client intake. She does so with a priority on residents’ safety and independence. “Independence translates to self-worth and a better quality of life, both of which make our later years enjoyable.”
In her time away from work, Amanda enjoys traveling, food, new experiences, and unwinding at the beach. Her hobbies include tap dancing and television production.
