With over 35 years as a nurse, my life has been devoted to family and patient care. For 30 years of my career, I served as the president and CEO of American Medical Resource Institute, where we presented education programs for nurses and physicians. Prior to that time, I worked with cardiac patients and their families, coaching them into healthier life styles and promoting heart-healthy habits. A lifelong resident of the northern suburbs of Chicago, I am thrilled to be helping older adults and their families find the perfect home.

My daughter, Marcella, and I decided to become Oasis Senior Advisors after coping with the long-term decline and eventual loss of my mother several years ago. Despite my many years in health care and my connections in the health care community, finding the right solution for my mother was a daunting and frustrating task. Unfortunately, most of us do not consider those final steps until we are in the throes of emotional turmoil, dealing with catastrophic illness and loss. Hospitals and physicians are not in a position to take the time to help families find the ideal location for themselves and their loved ones. That is where Oasis Senior Advisors steps in to help you find the best possible housing and care solution.

What we love about Oasis Senior Advisors is the personal approach. We have met with and surveyed every property we will discuss with you. We will sit down and talk with you and your loved ones to find out what your priorities are, and find the ideal setting for you based on your needs. For me, this is the culmination of my career; being able to sit down and help people when they need it most.
