As one of the owners I have been a part of the early conception of Timber Ridge. I started working day to day July of 1998. This job was a new career for me and what a career it has been. I have been part not only of the day to day operations but also the design and have loved every part of this job. I get up in the morning and make a difference in over 200 Seniors lives not counting their families, what better job could anyone have.

My family moved to Humboldt when I was a child, and after graduating from St. Bernard’s High School, I went to college in the bay area and began raising my family there. I returned to Humboldt County in 2002 and began working for Timber Ridge as wait staff and cook. I was impressed then with the time we had to spend with individual residents, making sure they had what they wanted and the "yes" policy which enabled me to serve residents well. Today, with the help of supervisors at each site, I manage both the McKinleyville and Eureka Kitchens, seeing to the needs of the residents and staff alike.

Executive Director of Vine Ridge at Cloverdale. I have worked for WLC since 2013. I have my BS degree in Kinesiology from Humboldt State. The reason I love what I do is that I get to help our residents feel safe and cared for while encouraging independence at the same time. Learning all of the resident's stories and past always amazes me.

Business Development/Outreach for Timber Ridge in Eureka. It’s been an honor joining the Timber Ridge Family. Every day provides a new opportunity to better the lives of our seniors in countless ways, big and small. In my lengthy professional life, I have occupied many roles; as a legal assistant, editor, animated screenwriter and patient care coordinator. But spending my days advancing the well-being of Timber Ridge residents is more than just a career - it’s a calling. I have two grown sons, 11 siblings, one rescue cat, a bachelor’s degree in history from San Jose State and a novel-in-progress.
