Providing Advocacy and guidance
Christian earned a Bachelor’s and Master’s Degree in Social Work with a focus on gerontology from the University of Washington in 2016. Christian is a licensed social worker and a member of the Aging Life Care Association as an Associate Care Manager.
Through his work with a local non-profit and EvergreenHealth outpatient services, Christian has extensive experience serving elders within the community. He has coordinated numerous services across the Greater Seattle Area to promote independence, wellness, socialization, and life-long learning for seniors. Christian understands the crucial role of caregivers and believes when a caregiver works with a client, they are also working with the client’s entire family. After partnering with clients and identifying their life stressors and strengths, Christian strives to connect them with the appropriate community support services that meet their bio-psychosocial needs. In addition to community efforts, he is skilled in navigating the healthcare system and helps clients access free or low-cost health insurance coverage every day.
Christian believes everyone has the right to a dignified, comfortable, and fully self-expressed life, especially those in need of medical and outpatient care. An individual’s self-determination and goals are strong components of that belief, and they structure the unique type of care each person deserves. Aging is a standard part of life and many of us will come to depend on others for care. The way in which we support and care for the older adult population should be one that recognizes their strengths, respects and wishes, warranting a dignified existence through end of life.
Christian is passionate about ensuring seniors age with dignity and respect. He cares deeply about social justice and protecting vulnerable populations, especially the aging LGBTQ community. Christian looks forward to partnering with clients and their families.
In his free time, Christian enjoys cooking (and eating), visiting his parents, siblings and nephews, and spending as much time as he can with his sweetie, Alex.
Michelle earned her Bachelors of Science at the University of Washington in 2011, one of the best nursing schools in the country. Michelle has over six years of nursing experience in a variety of settings. She is also a member of the Aging Life Care Association as an Associate Care Manager.
Michelle’s experience started out at a hospital on the cardio-thoracic floor. During her time there, she received advanced training in providing care for patients undergoing heart transplants, heart surgeries, and heart failure, in which patients were receiving a substantial level of care within an intense environment.
Michelle also provided nursing consultations and care for a local residential rehabilitation center. The primary residents were those with developmental disorders of all ages, and Michelle supported their medical care and coordination, and found opportunities to empower the residents’ independence. Michelle gained valuable experience caring for patients with mental health issues, behavioral challenges, and chronic diseases. Many of the residents also had difficulty with verbal expression; however, Michelle was able to address their needs by examining more than verbal language and investigating their surroundings and connecting with residents one-on-one. Michelle aims to empower her patients and provide them with compassionate care. She is a firm believer in chronic disease management.
Michelle will go to great lengths to provide individualized care no matter what obstacles may stand in the way. Whether her clients need a quick wound patch, or an advocate in the doctor’s office, Michelle brings professionalism and passion to her clients and their families.
Michelle grew up in Washington, and in her free time, she enjoys caring for her two young children.
TracyJo has many years of experience in the healthcare and management industries. She has held a variety of esteemed positions within Fedelta, including starting out as a caregiver, as well as care coordination. Empathy, compassion, and loyalty are three traits which TracyJo would use to describe herself, and she strives to ensure those attributes are reflected in the work she does with caregivers and clients. She seizes the opportunity to endure any challenge that may confront her, and her independent initiative allows her to achieve success and satisfaction. One of TracyJo’s favorite aspects of Fedelta is that it feels like an intimate, family environment in which she enjoys “treating everyone with the same respect as she would with her own family members.” TracyJo was born and raised in Washington, loves animals and children, and rides her motorcycle on weekends.
Eva is a 1st-year practicum student for the School of Social Work at the University of Washington. Her passion working with older populations began in California, where she became a primary caregiver for her grandmother, prior and during home hospice. She is interested in pursuing a dual MSW/MPH (Master in Public Health) degree in order to combine her social service fieldwork experience and mixed methods research. She is a bilingual first generation Latina dedicated to implement culturally-competent elder care. For fun, she enjoys playing indoor soccer, singing karaoke, and eating freshly-baked cookies!
Kayleigh is a 1st-year practicum student in the MSW program at UW, with a focus on elder care. Growing up, she saw how much personalized care helped her grandfather be healthy and happy for years after his Alzheimer’s diagnosis; it inspired her to pursue a career as a home caregiver, to continue spreading this idea to more senior care communities and practices. In her spare time, she loves to sew clothing, learn new crafts, and make more durable toys for her two destructive cats.
