Our Fort Collins / Loveland Care Team



I fell in love working with seniors as a volunteer at a skilled nursing facility in the Activities Department while I was in middle school. I was the bingo caller, exercise instructor, game facilitator, spa assistant, meal companion, dance partner, and FRIEND to all the residents of the community. Once I graduated from high school, I began a career path that involved working closely with seniors in many different capacities, Caregiver, Certified Nurse Assistant, Licensed Practical Nurse, and Health Care Administration. I have been a part of BrightStar since 2009 in many different roles; Field Nurse, Clinical Manager, and Administrator. In 2013 I purchased the BrightStar franchise location in the Loveland / Fort Collins area. My passion is to connect care providers who love to serve the elderly, like I had in middle school, to those needing that care. I have two beautiful daughters and I enjoy all the outdoor activities Colorado has to offer.
