Nancy also spent three years working as both an educator and manager in a skilled nursing and rehabilitation center. Nancy’s passion for senior care and services eventually led her to a career in skilled home healthcare, where she worked as a home healthcare nurse, Director of Nursing and made the transition to healthcare management and operations, where she served as Branch Director for one of the area’s most prominent Skilled Home Health Care agencies.
Nancy has spent her career dedicated to serving our community, with a focus on helping seniors.

Her favorite quote is from Albert Einstein, “Only a life lived for others is a life worthwhile.”
If we are so blessed, many of us will live to see “old age”, and Nancy believes that being of an older age is a privilege and that our senior population must be honored and revered. We have much to learn from our seniors, and Nancy feels passionate about helping seniors enjoy the “golden years.” Nancy’s connection to our community and passion for helping seniors, makes her a perfect fit as she helps Helping Seniors of Brevard County to fulfill its mission of Helping Seniors in Brevard County and beyond.
