The Foundation: A Life Devoted to Service

Lisa’s professional journey began as a Youth Mentor for Youth MOVE National back in 2007. Over the years, she honed her skills as a Deputy Director for Oregon Family Support Network Inc, where her commitment to helping others blossomed. But it was her tenure as the Owner of a State of Oregon Adult Foster Home that laid the groundwork for her profound connection to caregiving.

A Serendipitous Transition

Amidst the ebb and flow of life, unforeseen circumstances often lead us down unexpected paths. For Lisa, this moment of serendipity came with the closure of her foster home. Uncertain of her next steps, she found solace and inspiration in a friend who had embarked on a journey as a caregiver. Intrigued, Lisa delved into researching the realm of home care, seeking a new avenue to channel her passion for service and caring for others. Finding Family Resource Home Care in Corvallis, Oregon steered her in the direction of applying.

“I felt like I had a lot of support and liked the Family Resource Home Care goal and vision. It’s good to show the caregivers the upward movement and open availability that they can move into.”

The Ascension: From Caregiver to Caregiver Manager

Lisa’s ascent within the caregiving landscape was marked by unwavering determination and a thirst for knowledge. Starting as a caregiver, she soon transitioned to the role of Lead Caregiver, where she found joy in representing her company and forging meaningful connections with clients. It was here that she discovered her knack for efficiency and innovation, laying the groundwork for her eventual leap to Caregiver Manager.

“After being a lead caregiver, I was curious about the company and wanted to learn more. When the Caregiver Manager position came up, I was encouraged to apply for it, and I got the job.”

Nurturing Excellence: Lisa’s Promise

As a seasoned caregiver turned manager, Lisa brings a wealth of firsthand experience to her role. Also, drawing from her days as a volunteer firefighter, she imbues her leadership with the wisdom of de-escalation and crisis management. Guiding her team with empathy and humor, she fosters an environment where caregivers can thrive and clients receive exceptional care.

“Humor connects people, and I find that it’s important to think things through, and always take a breath before reacting.”

Words of Wisdom: Embracing New Chapters

Reflecting on her journey, Lisa offers sage advice to aspiring caregivers and professionals alike. With each new opportunity, she sees a chance to embark on a new chapter of growth and discovery.

“Believe in yourself, and remember that every new opportunity is another chapter in your life that you could be turning the page into a new experience.”
