Juliet is and has been many things: Student. Mom of five, including twins. Doula. Avid reader. Organizer. La Leche League Leader. Elementary school teacher. Receptionist. Activities assistant. Aging Wisdom’s Creative Engagement Lead.
Juliet first joined Aging Wisdom as a Creative Engagement Specialist in June 2016 and later became our office administrative assistant. She was the calm, dependable presence staff turn to for troubleshooting, answers and support. Becoming our Creative Engagement Lead was a natural next step for her.
Juliet has been a certified home care aide (HCA) and has worked in the field of aging since 2012. Juliet facilitates Professional Boundaries Training (approved by DSHS for 3 CEU credits for caregivers) and is involved with hiring, training and supervising Aging Wisdom Creative Engagement Specialists. Her experience as a specialist is particularly helpful in assisting our team with tailoring activities and supports for our clients.
Juliet will be the first to observe the common thread tying her past and present roles together as: “Being in relationship with people.” And when you meet Juliet, you will understand that this is the essence of who she is and what she brings so fully to this position
In particular, the strong appeal of working as a Creative Engagement Specialist at Aging Wisdom was the opportunity to work one-on-one with clients. This is where Juliet finds joy: in getting to know a client personally, their life, family, personality, likes and dislikes, stories, and what makes them smile. Outings can be a simple as a neighborhood walk to enjoy the sun and fresh air or venturing to Remlinger Farms to ride the steam train, visit the petting zoo and round up the day with fresh ice cream. And Juliet is quick to emphasize this reciprocity – something infinitely special that she gets in return from these visits as an Engagement Specialist.
