Compassionate & Caring Staff

Hometown: Fairfax, Virginia, now Amissville VA
Title: Executive Director LPN, LALA
What community/communities do you serve: Fox Trail Senior Living at Stephens City, VA. Additionally, I provide support to the teams in our Front Royal, Manassas and Orange communities with nursing oversight.
Favorite part about working for Fox Trail Senior Living: I enjoy being able to care for our residents each day, and care for their families and our teams that provide care. Fox Trail Senior Living allows us to live and breathe while “making a difference.” As a team, we do that each and every day. Every moment is memorable, and we work to make every moment count for our residents.
Favorite memory while working at Fox Trail Senior Living: I love watching each community become more than a structure, but become a living, breathing home for us those that we are privileged enough to care for. Fox Trail Senior Living has provided the tools and the environment to allow for our residents to flourish. Our team recognizes each resident as their own relevant and unique individual. We are all about providing personal care and this creates an environment in which we can create favorite memories everyday!
Favorite dessert: Carrot cake, but chocolate ice cream is a very close second.
What’s a fun fact about you: I am ambidextrous and have a photographic memory. I also write poems, and have even had one published!
Prior to moving my mother into Memorycare Living Hillsdale we had very disturbing experiences at two other dementia care facilities so we were nervous. I really cannot convey how absolutely wonderful we have all been treated at Hillsdale!!! In no uncertain terms it has exceeded our expectations. They are kind, gentle and really recognize and address the individual's particular needs. They interact with the family members, as well as their residents with compassion, concern and empathy that I am certain cannot be rivaled anywhere else. My mother had been labeled combative, was overly medicated and not really kept clean which seemed to add to her agitation and discomfort elsewhere. Since she has moved into the Hillsdale house we have not had a single phone call or report regarding her behavior. She is calm and comfortable. This is because the pay attention to her needs and what she wants. This is such a relief. We are so grateful to all. [Removed] are both sincere and willing to accommodate on so many different levels. I recommend them highly with no reservation at all.
