After nine years as a recruiter for FedEx Express, Kathy moved into a sales and marketing position with the esteemed Sunrise Senior Living. Although she transitioned into the senior care industry, her “travels” were far from over. From Edmonds to Lynnwood, Snohomish to Bellevue and even to Mercer Island. She explored the senior living communities of Washington and it wasn’t long before she was an admissions coordinator for a skilled nursing facility operating in Bellevue, Seattle, and Issaquah.
As she helped elders achieve short and long-term care from the hospitals’ ERs, Kathy offered many seniors the Concierge Care Advisors as a resource, and after seeing the relief in their faces, this led her to join the team herself.
Kathy has a great deal of personal experience in the senior care industry as well. Both she and her husband’s parents needed to move, and it wasn’t until they were in crisis that they did. In both circumstances, Kathy became an advocate for seniors to make sure that they weren’t simply choosing what option was most immediate, but what option was best.
Working in the skilled nursing facility for as long as she has, she’s seen what growing old (without a plan) is like. One of her main focuses is letting seniors and their families know that they are not alone and even if they have limited funding and support, she will help them.
