Came to Juneau in 1970 with her husband and toddler. Housing was already a critical issue, and it was a challenge to find a place to live, and this problem continues today. After retiring officially in 2006 she took time to care for the newest grandchild, Meadow. In 2009, she went to work as a Case Manager with Southeast Senior Services where she still is today. She works with vulnerable seniors, promoting independence and healthy living. It is a rewarding and energizing experience and we learn so much from our seniors. Family Promise is such fundamental and substantive help to reach out to families of all persuasions, size, and general make up. It’s always so great to see a family find permanent housing and become an integral part of the community and it enriches our community at the same time.
