Admissions & West Bld I Manager
I came to Byron Center Manor through my mother-in-law. I chose Byron Center Manor for her, and a few months later, I was approached by Jean, the administrator. She told me she knew I was the person she wanted for an important role here. I prayed about it and accepted the position. It has been a blessing to me ever since.
I love my current role as admissions manager. I meet with families who are going through similar steps that I had recently taken with my own family, placing a loved one in someone’s care. I also enjoy working throughout our entire community, getting to know the residents and their families.
I have worked in a variety of fields: from factory work to medical assistant in pediatrics to managing a family practice for a local doctor to medical billing. I was also the primary care giver for my mother-in-law for 10 years.
I was raised in a rather large family, being 1 of 13 children. I am still a member of the same community I was raised in, and family is extremely important to me. I have 3 sons and 6 grandchildren. My free time is spent with them, gardening, fishing or camping.
