Admissions Director, Citadel of Northbrook

The best part of being apart of Citadel is how approachable our leadership is. I never hesitate to offer my ideas or suggestions, and I constantly feel heard and understood. I love the team atmosphere and leadership that Citadel has. All different departments are willing to help one another, to ensure that our patients and staff are happy and that all needs are satisfied.

My favorite part of my job is meeting different patients and residents. Everyone who admits to us has their own story, and it’s fascinating to hear where people come from and to get a glimpse of their past.

Dementia Unit Director, Citadel of Northbrook, 11 Years

I love helping people and making a positive impact in people’s lives.  I started volunteering in nursing homes in high school and when I saw the impact I made on people’s lives, I realized what a meaningful career I could have in the industry.  It means a lot to wake up in the morning, and know that what you are going to do every day makes a difference in people’s lives.

Citadel is a great place to work—our team is wonderful and our families are always keeping me learning new things and growing as a professional.

There is no better gift than a life of meaningful work and I feel like my job makes a difference and is meaningful.
