About Amy & Kim


Amy and Kim believe older adults and their families can benefit greatly from professional guidance to discover the senior living communities that best match their care needs, social and geographic preferences, and financial resources.

Amy is a Gerontologist and Kim is a state certified RCFE Administrator, and a Certified Senior Advisor. Kim watched her own parent go from being sedentary and alone most of the time to having a full schedule of activities and a new group of friends once he became a resident of an independent and assisted living community.

In 2003, after receiving a Master of Science degree in Gerontology, the additional knowledge Amy gained as a Case Manager and working at the Alzheimer’s Association gave her a comprehensive ability to work well with older adults and their families. As a Balance and Mobility instructor at Coastline College, Amy was able to see firsthand the benefits of older adults being healthy together in a social setting. Prior to CarePatrol, Kim was the General Manager of a wellness center where she found a passion for helping others by listening to their medical and emotional needs, then finding the right plan of action for them.

Kim and Amy have lived in Orange County for over 20 years. Together, Amy and Kim use their complementary skills and whole-hearted passion to assist families through the process of finding the right senior living community.
