Susie’s Biography

I’ve spent the last 20 years in Las Vegas. I worked for the Latin Chamber of Commerce for seven years managing a Senior Center. And prior to that, I worked as the Assistant to the President and CEO of Nevada Association of Latin Americans (NALA), the first Hispanic association founded in the state of Nevada, assisting with the administration department and company internal programing.

Now, I am currently responsible for the management and operation of Nevada Adult Day Healthcare Centers at the ACSC. In April of 2005, I received the Citizen of the Month Award presented by the Mayor and Council Members of City of Las Vegas. In my spare time, I enjoy jet skiing, fishing and jogging.

When did you start work at Nevada Adult Day Healthcare Centers?

I started working for NADHC on June 1, 2009.

What do you like about being an adult day care staff member? What’s your favorite part of the job?

Taking care of our clients and making sure they are well taken care of. It’s important to have dedicated adult day care staff and make sure they provide the best quality of care possible for our participants.

Why is senior care important?

Senior day care is important because it allows a family peace of mind while they’re at work. Our clients are able to participate in a program specially designed to meet their needs. We stimulate, educate and create an environment where our senior day care clients socialize and exercise to improve and maintain their level of functioning.

Anything you’d like to share? A story or something you’ve learned from your time here as adult day care staff?

I have so many stories! But something important and wonderful that I would like to share is the wonderful feeling when the clients come to me and thank me everyday. They share with me their feelings, let me know they feel so loved and comfortable attending our center, and they feel loved by our caring adult day care staff. That’s so important and special.
