Founder, Senior Move Partners, LLC,
20 year career break
"I developed strong organizational skills working for 13 years managing national advertising campaigns for Fortune 500 companies. This required being able to plan and co-ordinate dozens of details involving a myriad of people and logistics. These skills were re-deployed while moving nine times, among four states, in the first eleven years of my marriage. I then took a 20 year career break to care for my children, and ultimately for my mother, after she suffered a debilitating stroke which immediately necessitated accommodations to her living situation. Eventually, this included downsizing of her home and relocation to an assisted living facility. I have also been an active volunteer and held leadership positions in several organizations including serving on the Board of Directors of Jewish Community Housing for the Elderly, which provides non-sectarian housing for low-income seniors.
I started Senior Move Partners after I realized through personal experience how difficult it is for seniors and their families to manage a move, especially if the senior needs extra help or if family is not nearby. My role allows me to combine all of my interests and skills; superb organization and logistics management, compassion for the senior population and their families, an interest in social action, and even a little decorating thrown in!"
