Humboldt, From McKinleyville to Eureka

Locals through and through. Chances are, we know your family and can't wait to get to know them better. We know that home is more than four walls and a ceiling. Home is warm, inviting, and supportive. Timber Ridge is where residents receive personal care from knowledgeable, caring staff.

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.

I started my career as a business owner in 2012 and have recently joined Timber and Vine Ridge Senior Living Communities after many years of leading teams to success.

I strive to understand the unique needs of each individual I work with during their exploration of senior living. This helps reach my overall goal of helping people live their lives to the fullest.

Executive Assistant

McKinleyville, McKinleyville Renaissance

Timber Ridge has offered me the career that I have been searching for in my young professional life. I am able to creatively problem-solve, while work with an amazing group of people, both residents and staff. I am originally from the Sacramento area and have been moving further north since graduating from Chico State in 2017 with a degree in Resort and Lodging Management. I moved to Humboldt in 2018, with my husband and we love calling this area home. I am happiest when I am surrounded by family.

McKinleyville, McKinleyville Renaissance

I started working at Timber Ridge in December 2019, and have loved every moment of it. Having been born and raised in Humboldt County, I have always wanted to somehow be able to give back to the community that gave me so much and this job has given me the opportunity to do so. I love the interactions with all of our residents and have thoroughly enjoyed getting to know each and everyone that I can. I have three kids and 2 dogs. I’m a Native American, Yurok Tribe, and enjoy traditional activities, dances, and ceremonies.

Cloverdale, Cloverdale Renaissance

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.
