Julie, R.N. Care Manager

I have been at Baywood since 2013. I have worked in home care and Geriatric Case
Management for most of my 25+ years of nursing. I was previously employed by the University of Minnesota Physicians as a supervisor overseeing nurses and social workers in developing a program to keep people in their homes, reducing Nursing Home admissions. This was a very rewarding experience but I wanted to return to face to face nursing with contact with clients, since this is where my passion lies. When I do get time for myself I enjoy being creative and have a hobby of throwing pottery.

Then I worked for 10 years for Fairview Home Care and Hospice as a case manager, and after that with the U of M Physicians as a Managed Care Coordinator, working with elderly clients in their homes. I enjoy vacations on the beach, boating, working in my flower garden, planting flowers with my daughter-in-law, visiting  neighbors, and visiting my son in Colorado. I live in Maple Grove.

Much of my spare time is spent with family and friends enjoying life.

I joined Baywood in 2020. I have had a career in the nursing field for over 30 years. I have a strong foundation in Disability and Geriatric Case Management, Rehabilitation Nursing, and Home Care. Over half of my career has involved various leadership roles.

I joined Baywood in 2021. I have been working in home care for over 15 years. I started as an aide. I then worked as a pediatric private duty nurse for several years with Hiawatha Home Care. I then spent 7 years working as a RN case manager with Home Health Care, Inc in the Minneapolis area. Helping people stay in their homes is the most rewarding part of my career.

I have three children with my wonderful husband. We are busy with kids’ sports and activities. We enjoy camping, boating, and snowmobiling. I also love gardening, and cooking, cribbage, and I play volleyball.

Emily, Chief Compliance, Quality, and Education Officer

I joined Baywood in 2021, and have more than 20 years of nursing experience, including more than 10 years in management. I began working with seniors at the age of 12 while
volunteering with my grandmother, who was a registered nurse, at a nursing home in Robbinsdale. My love for seniors blossomed into a nursing career, with a dedication to serving and improving the lives of others. I enjoy time with family, singing and volunteering.

Larry, L.P.N., Home Care Nurse

I have been at Baywood since 2017. My L.P.N. experience includes home health, assisted living, long-term care, and transitional care. I have a B.A. in Business from Concordia University and was a property manager for seven senior housing facilities before becoming a nurse. So in a way, I have been taking care of seniors a long time! When not working I enjoy spending time with my wife and family in our home in Plymouth.
