Julene is a Care Manager at GSS, providing medical management and consultation, client care planning and on-going assessment of needs, transportation arrangements when needed, and oversight and coordination of companion visits. Julene has regular meetings with the clients and with family members as indicated to ensure that needs are being met.
The primary goal Julene has is to establish rapport and trust in order to work with clients and their families on potentially very private and uncomfortable issues surrounding their overall healthcare. This is especially important during times of acute medical or emotional distress, or when discussing end-of-life needs.
Julene has a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology and Occupational Therapy from the University of Washington and is a Washington State licensed in Occupational Therapist. She has been in the medical field for almost 40 years, working in areas of acute rehab, long-term care, accessible home design and modification, and for the past 6 years, has been focused on care management.
She loves all things travel, dining, sports, fitness and family!
