“For 110 years, UMRC has been committed to a caregiving ministry for the elderly in their times of need.  UMRC’s mission and Guiding Beliefs to promote wellness, dignity and independence of older adults in a way that is inclusive, responsible, innovative, compassionate, and with upright character, are all areas that help fuel my passion as an employee.  These beliefs are an integral part of who I am. Being a part of this organization allows me an opportunity to serve daily both professionally and in Christian ministry.  It is a pleasure to be a part of an organization whose legacy has extended more than a century, and I look forward to many more innovative things to come.”
