Jason’s grandmother, Sophie, is the reason he dedicated his career to caregiving for people with memory loss. As a child, he listened to stories about her work and the residents she cared for as a C.N.A at King Veterans Nursing Home
in Waupaca. Her enjoyment in caring for elders taught him the real meaning of life: To be passionate about helping people.
His desire to care for seniors like his grandmother inspired him to earn his Registered Nurse (RN) degree, as well as a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration with a Healthcare emphasis.
Prior to founding Heartwood Senior Living, Jason served as Director of Nursing for a large senior living community, making operational and cultural improvements. Although he loved making positive changes that affected many, he had a bigger vision in mind.
