During her 25 years in senior living, Jaimie displayed passion for residents and their families every day. She cared deeply for those around her, and always put them first, all while battling multiple bouts of cancer. Those who knew her best say she was always demonstrating her passion, positivity and dedication to helping others.

"When you work in senior living you meet many people with huge hearts, tremendous dedication and passion for seniors," Brookdale Springs Mesa Executive Director Regan Stone said. "Rarely though do you meet someone who radiates all of these things each and every day."

Jaimie showed the care and compassion needed to set herself apart from others. She helped bring dignity, independence, and a high quality of life to her residents, all while facing her own personal battles. Without a doubt, her love for the people she served helped enrich lives and make a difference.

The 2022 Hero Award was presented at the Argentum Senior Living Executive Conference in Minneapolis, Minnesota, on May 16th. Stone presented the award to Jaimie's husband, Phil Harel, who accepted it on her behalf.

All 2022 award winners are profiled in the June/July issue of Senior Living Executive magazine.
