Meet our dedicated and caring staff
I love life and try to live it to the fullest every day. My goal is to get people at every age to adopt the same perspective. That is why I love my job; we get to change how older adults have traditionally experienced long term care.
Growing up in Ackley and having had family members that were residents of Grand JiVanté, I know how important it is to maintain a home-like environment. I am happy to be part of a team that that is constantly striving to do better and be better for our residents.

I love sitting and talking with the residents and families and getting to know them as a person. I want to available to serve them in anyway I can to make sure that they can feel the same way.
I enjoy working here because of the willingness of staff to implement new ideas and accommodate our residents’ wishes.
