Please tell our readers how has your journey been so far as a self-made entrepreneur?
Being a self-made entrepreneur has had its ups and downs, with making many mistakes through trial
and error. Knocking down doors and climbing many obstacles while trying to find my way.
Please tell us about your company and the services that you provide.
I am an owner of (2) assisted living communities where I provide care for older adults ages 65+ who have dementia, Alzheimer’s, and disabilities. With my expertise in providing care, I started The Assisted
Living Coach Academy where I educate individuals on how to become assisted living owners and/or
What do you enjoy most about the work that you do?
I enjoy providing AMAZING care for the elderly while allowing them to stay as independent as possible. Also, making them feel as though they are kings and queen’s and it is their time to relax, kick their feet up and allow my staff and I to cater to their every need. Within the Academy, my goal is to educate as many people as I can and make them success after they have completed my program.
How has business been during the pandemic?
I will say that the pandemic has been great to me. There were many older adults that have gotten sick and were in need of an assisted living community since the hospitals did not have empty beds.
How do you think you make a difference in the world?
I know that I make a difference in the world because the older population are living longer and they need care daily. In the next 15 – 20 years there will be a total of 80 million adults 65+ that will need to be placed in assisted living communities.
