About the Author: Michele Daley

I have been in senior living for 15 years. I stumbled into it quite accidentally and fell madly in love. I consider it an honor and privilege to serve our senior population and their families. I have held a variety of positions over the years and still find the most rewarding part of what we do is making a senior smile. When I am not at work I enjoy spending time with my family. Some of our favorite things to do together are going to amusement parks and anything on the beach.
