About Shana

Shana has worked in healthcare for over 16 years, with extensive experience in senior health care for over 9 of those years. Her experience includes providing direct care in a residential home as a caregiver/medication aide while earning her undergraduate degree, working as a Home Care Specialist for a home care agency, a Director of Sales and Marketing in a senior living community, and as a Licensed Insurance Agent selling Medicare Advantage Plans. Shana found her calling to the senior living industry while living next door to an aging adult that truly had no one to assist her with the struggles of remaining in her home independently, and she was there to assist her in finding the best senior living option for her needs. Shana’s passion has always been helping others, but finds that this population is truly the most rewarding to work with.

What I'm passionate about:

Volunteerism, not just locally but nationally as well as internationally. Traveling, camping, exploring new places, spending time with family, and eating great food!

A Note From Shana

“Seniors and their families can face a myriad of challenges in finding the best care options, and navigating those challenges can be incredibly overwhelming. As your advisor, I will be there to assist you every step of the way and I am committed to making the process less stressful and as seamless as possible for you and your loved one.”
