Meet the Operations Director

I am thrilled to be working with such compassionate and dedicated supporters who share in the mission to help others at the end of life.

I was a Hickman High Kewpie and then attended the University of Missouri, graduating with a degree in Business Administration. I have worked in multiple areas of the healthcare industry – nurse’s aide, pharmacy technician, and district sales manager for a hospital vendor. My most recent position as Family Services Coordinator allowed me to help families navigate the organ donation process.  Working with these families was very fulfilling for me because it allowed me to provide comfort to grieving families and hope to organ recipients.

I have two daughters. Kenzie is a 15-year-old going on 30, and Julia is 11.  They always keep me on my toes.  Both girls share my passion for helping others and are already begging to volunteer at Caring Hearts and Hands by baking cookies or helping with yard work. In my time away from work, I enjoy being involved in my daughter’s activities, walking on the MKT trail, and taking our puppy to the dog park. 

In my short time with Caring Hearts and Hands, I have witnessed the compassion and dedication shown by those in our community who generously offer gifts of their time, talents, and finances.  Each of you willingly and consistently shares these gifts of caring with our guests and their loved ones.  If you want to know about the impact of CHHC, here’s what a beautiful family we served recently told us:

“CHHC allowed us to be family and not caregivers and to feel like we were being taken care of too. You all were great, and the house was fantastic.” 

Thanks for all you do.
