Justyn has been involved in elder care for the past 25 years. She began her career as a Certified Nursing Assistant in High School, helping an at-risk population of elders by addressing basic care needs. Justyn found an interest in hospice care as a nursing student and has been the primary caregiver at the final stages for many people (including a few loved ones). As a RN she spent 8 years as Nurse Manager at an assisted living community, communicating with staff, family members, and advocating for residents’ needs. Her most recent position has been in community health, allowing her to become familiar with most care communities in Central Oregon. She has held a Level II Reiki Healer Certification since 2013 and is holistic in her approach to patient care. She is currently in the process of launching her own business, Heart and Soul Aging, which provides private duty care and guides families through the aging process.
