Many of our residents say that the personal relationships they develop with our team members are the best part of living in a Rittenhouse Village community. Here, you’ll find smiles and warm hellos, celebrations and laughter, and support during times of need. We give our residents individualized care and impeccable service so they can live carefree and content. At Rittenhouse Village, we are all family.
I currently live in Michigan City with my husband and the best little dog ever. My husband and I have a blended family with one adult daughter, two adult sons, and 3 grandchildren. I graduated from Purdue North Central with a Bachelor of Science in 2012 and began working in the senior living industry while earning my Residential Care Administrator License. I love what I do every day and look forward to making a difference.
