MEET JULIA MAHER

 

I have a passion for helping people. I am committed to assisting older adults and their families with the emotional and physical aspects of transitional moving. I want to take the stress off of families by treating their loved ones with the utmost care and respect so that they can have more quality time to enjoy with one another.

So why Daisy’s Senior Moves? My grandmother Daisy who I was very close to and respected beyond words, worked for many years to advocate for seniors while serving on her state’s Silver Hair Legislature. Daisy served as president of her counties Council on Aging, as well as, being a Senior Alert Process Advocate in Washington DC.  She was honored as a Distinguished Older Missourian in 1998. I was always in awe of my grandmother and all that she accomplished. Her knowledge and wisdom inspired me and was part of my development from childhood to adulthood. Through our visits to the Senior Center that she helped to develop I learned the value of service to others and gained an appreciation for the wisdom of our seniors.

These experiences and the example that my Grandmother provided, taught me that seniors are a valuable part of our community and full of life learnings. I feel compelled to provide this service because it combines my passion for helping others with my calling learned from my Grandmother, to help seniors and families through periods of transition.

I am a people person.  My Dad likes to tell the story of how when we were visiting my first big city around age 12, and after seeing the bustle of everyone going about their business I opened up my car window and shouted “I LOVE PEOPLE."  I have always wanted to know how I can make a difference in others lives. 

After serving in the Air Force and Air National Guard I earned my degree in Psychology.  I then sought career opportunities where I felt I could make a difference and I accomplished this through projects that involved process improvement (another passion of mine) and project management, as well as with my work in administration and communications.  I have earned awards for achievement and excellence for contributions to organizations, customer service and for leading in my safety mindset and leadership. I am and have always been committed to quality and customer service.

My experience with many of my own moves and helping others with theirs and the organization skills that I have made Daisy’s Senior Moves a natural fit for me.  Currently I am on the Board of Directors for the Millbrook W.E.L.C.O.M.E Center, a non-profit food pantry serving 250 families in Elmore County, Alabama.

In these times of transition, I am reminded of a Bible quote that my Mom always shared during periods of stress and change, 

Romans 8:28, “And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them that are called according to his purpose.”  

I look forward to learning how I can help your family to create a positive experience!
