Describe your business. Did you find it, or did it find you?
We specialize in placing seniors into assisted living and residential care homes, and providing in-home care for seniors who choose to stay at home. I think we found each other.
What was the first job you ever had, and what did you learn from the experience?
My first job was working at McDonald’s in Rancho Cordova. I learned respect and responsibility and how not to hurry along too fast.
How are you involved with both the community and your customer?
My company donates back to low-income seniors who have no one, and during Christmas we adopt low-income seniors and low-income board and care homes. Every senior gets a complete outfit and a warm blanket; as well, we donate time at skilled nursing facilities during Halloween and carve pumpkins with them. We give clients our undivided attention and make everyone feel special, because they are.
Who is your role model in business or in life, and why?
My mom. Her strength as a single mom is phenomenal. She taught me to be strong, to always count on myself, and to never give up on my dreams.
Where do you go when the going gets tough?
I don’t escape anywhere when the going gets tough; instead, it makes me be tougher and handle the challenges set forth. I don’t know how to run away from challenges; instead I deal with them, resolve the issues, and then move on.
What’s your favorite local business other than your own?
I love to try new restaurants, and shopping at the Fountains at Roseville’s boutiques.
And finally, customer service is…?
Very important to me. If I receive good service, I will promote that business to everyone and become the best customer. I truly believe in treating all customers with respect.
