Acquiring an Associate’s degree and achieving certification as a veterinary technologist, Amy worked as a certified veterinary technician for several years before making a career change. Working as a phlebotomist for a local hospital and a well-known diagnostic company, Amy found a special place in her heart for geriatric patients. She was fortunate to be able to spend time talking with the senior citizen patients. Amy found that many of them were unhappy with their current care giving situations and felt they weren’t getting the care they deserved. Amy enjoyed her job, but loved knowing she could make a difference in senior’s lives a whole lot more. She immediately began working on opening her own adult day care center. Amy began working with a SCORE counselor and attended many SCORE workshops to help with start-up and operations. She also completed an online supervision and management course. Amy is looking forward to the many years to come with her senior friends and family.
