I'm the Director of Sales for New Perspective Senior Living | Waconia. I grew up on a farm not too far from this beautiful city. I fell in love with New Perspective in 2012, when I started as a Life Enrichment Director at the Eagan and Prior Lake communities. From there I worked as the Business Office Coordinator and have worked in our corporate human resources department. Each time I visited Waconia, I was so impressed by the way I felt love and positive energy, I knew I wanted to call it my career home. It's exciting to help seniors find such a wonderful place to call their new home,and where they get to live life on purpose everyday with an outstanding care staff and leadership team!
