I have spent the past 27 years working in some capacity with serving seniors in housing or health care. I try to live according to the words in Luke 12:48, “From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked.” In that way, I believe my life and career experiences, as well as my current life-stage, afford me a perspective that can be of value to enhancing Acts’ mission to serve seniors in their communities.      3
