I love getting to know new people! People share their story, describe what they need as they get older, as we chat in their home. I’ve worked for many years in aging services, including at both nursing homes and community-based programs. Once I came to PACE, I found a place that helps people get excellent health care, stay living at home and create vibrant new friendships! My favorite part of my job is seeing the transformation PACE can make in an older adult’s life.

Tina assists in helping older adults and their families to decide what comes next in their healthcare and determine if they are eligible for PACE services.

During an assessment in the person’s home, Tina will discuss insurances, advanced directives, housing and other topics about aging. If PACE seems like a good fit, she then coordinates the assessment process with PACE staff and apply for insurances, including Medicaid, as needed. Tina assists the participant until they are settled in with the excellent Personal Care Team at PACE on the first day of their enrollment. Then she's off to find the next person who needs Huron Valley PACE!  

In her free time, Tina loves to host giant dinner parties - very little makes her happier than having friends and family crowded into our house with good food and good conversation all around! She also enjoys making comforting family recipes, like her grandma’s potato salad, her mom’s chicken pot pie, or that blackberry cobbler her dad loves so much.
