Memory Care Community Enrichment Specialist
Isabel (she/her) is serving as a Memory Care Enrichment Specialist at Memory Care at Allen Brook, a Cathedral Square location. She moved around quite a bit growing up but have lived mostly in Salt Lake City, UT, Boston, MA, Rome, Italy and Burlington. Isabel fell in love with Burlington and Vermont a few years ago when she attended her first year of college at Champlain. Though Champlain wasn’t a good fit, Burlington was so Isabel stayed and received an Associate’s Degree through the Community College of Vermont. She is hoping to continue on to the University of Vermont to study Sociology and Film Studies in the next year. Due to the pandemic, she decided to put school off in order to explore other ways she could give back to her community and learn more about Sociology hands on. This is why she decided to apply for AmeriCorps and VHCB positions in particular.
Isabel loves the outdoors, music, reading and writing, watching TV and movies (currently making her way through Twin Peaks for the second time), and simply spending time with people. She’s looking forward to getting to know and serve the residents at Allen Brook because they are such wonderful people, and are providing her an opportunity to grow in terms of empathy and love, responsibility, leadership, and perspective.
