Why are you passionate about Apopka Health and Rehabilitation?

I see my job as giving back to the long-term care population. I’m a servant leader and want to make a positive impact.

How did you transition from nursing to healthcare administration?

I initially thought I wanted to be a nurse, but after volunteering, I pursued an administrator training program to work in long-term care.

What confirmed that you belonged in long-term care?

Meeting colleagues who knew my mom, a former nurse, and shared the same passion. Seeing her influence translate to me confirmed my path.

Where do you want to take long-term care in Florida in the next 10 years?

I want to empower the younger generation to understand healthcare leadership and make a community impact. I also want to educate peers about policy changes.

What have you learned being on the Florida Board of Nursing Home Administrators?

I’ve learned that we have more impact on healthcare policies than we think. Sharing real stories from our centers can influence decision-making.

What challenges do you face as a young leader in the industry?

The complexity of dealing with humans, families and industry intricacies. Balancing these challenges while maintaining a positive energy is tough.
