Miriam, our lead Care Manager, graduated from the University of Massachusetts School of Nursing with a BSN degree and became a licensed RN. She started her career as a skilled nurse on a med-surgical unit at one of the nation’s top hospital, Beth Israel-Deaconess in Boston, where she worked with patients dealing with complex medical issues. Later on, as Miriam developed a passion for working with the geriatric population and the disabled, this invaluable clinical experience has been highly beneficial to Miriam and her clients throughout her 25 years of working as a visiting nurse, nurse-case manager, and public health nurse serving older and disabled adults in Santa Cruz and Santa Clara counties.
She received a number of awards and recognitions from organizations and communities with whom she worked. Perhaps more importantly, Miriam had received an abundance of gratitude from countless clients whom she served. Besides her substantial nursing, care management and public health experience, Miriam also has first-hand experience with palliative care, hospice and end-of-life care. Miriam also volunteered in Santa Clara and Santa Cruz counties as a teacher-counselor for adults with challenging backgrounds. Miriam is a Professional Member of Aging Life Care Association, formerly the National Association of Professional Geriatric Care Managers. During the few past years, as an independent care manager, Miriam has been using the wealth of her professional and social experience for the benefit of her clients.
