What does it mean to you to lead with love?

I love my work. I think to lead with love means to just show my team, my families and my residents how to have a loving heart and a loving, kind way, and to guide them that way by making myself a good example. I remind my team that a resident could be your mom. It was my dad. It could be you. When I give a tour, I tell my story so families know that I’m a family member just like they are. I try leading by example and showing what it means to love. This is our most vulnerable population, for Pete’s sake.
