Our Berkeley PACE center offers a full-service medical clinic, a large social center and a fully equipped gym.

Elders who are enrolled in our all-inclusive healthcare plan often visit this center to eat a tasty lunch with friends, enjoy performances or activities, speak with their social workers or see their nurse, doctor or spend time with their physical therapist.

This center features a rooftop outdoor patio to enjoy the sunshine and fresh air.

“My goal is to ensure each elder feels empowered and finds purpose in their life in a supportive and caring environment.”

As a Center Director, I’m thrilled to lead a wonderful team of providers who work so hard to ensure the needs of each individual senior are valued, respected and prioritized. In my previous roles, I worked closely with CEI as my clients’ developed needs for higher levels of care. I was always so impressed with CEI’s services and their compassionate providers. My goal is to ensure each elder feels empowered and finds purpose in their life in a supportive and caring environment.

After earning my Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from San Diego State University, I worked as a psychosocial rehabilitation specialist helping seniors with mental illness and substance use disorders. I witnessed over and over again the resilience of older adults and saw firsthand their strength to overcome huge challenges and struggles. They became a source of inspiration for me and I knew then working with seniors was my passion and purpose in life. I continued my formal education at UC Berkeley completing my Masters of Social Welfare with an emphasis on Community Mental Health, then joining a memory care residential care community as a director of resident and family services.

Immediately before joining Center for Elders’ Independence in 2021, I worked directly with seniors by providing social work consultation and case management services as well as individual therapy and grief counseling sessions at the Jewish Family & Community Services of the East Bay. I speak English and conversational Spanish.

During my time off, I love spending my time with my husband and two dogs plus visiting friends and family in the East Bay. I love to bake cookies, explore farmer’s markets and try new restaurants. For quiet times, reading and listening to podcasts are a top favorite.

“I have a deep respect and passion to teach and coach older adults how to maintain their health and well-being while reducing stressors. I’m honored to work directly with seniors.”

I have a deep respect and passion to teach and coach older adults how to maintain their health and well-being while reducing stressors. I am honored to work directly with families of elders with Parkinson’s disease and dementia through movement therapy. By dancing, my patients are maintaining their strength and balance.

When I learned about the greater opportunities for teaching and coaching, I was inspired to become a nurse. As I already had a Bachelor of Arts degree from UC Berkeley, I applied to the Master of Science in Nursing at UC San Francisco. I graduated completing the Gerontological Nurse Practitioner program and obtained my board certification in 2006. Also, I am a member of several professional organizations including the American Geriatric Society and the Gerontological Nurse Practitioner Association and hold a number of other certificates and licenses. After several years as a nurse practitioner for a small doctor’s office, I chose to return to my love for seniors by joining Center for Elders’ Independence in 2007.
I currently volunteer as a board member for both the Suitcase Clinic, which serves the homeless in Berkeley and Brightstar of Marin, which is a home health agency in Marin County.

Wadokai karate is a big passion of mine and I hold a third degree black belt in the martial art. My bicycle is my main form of transportation. I also love to spend time with my mother and close friends. I love being outdoors and appreciate a good garden rock over a diamond any day.
