After several years working in the corporate world, I decided that I wanted to make an impact in a more personal way. My first job working in senior support services was handling professional outreach for a New England based assisted living company.
It was within this role that I found my true professional calling, which was helping older adults. My career progressed and I began working as a Senior Living Advisor, earning the designation of Certified Dementia Practitioner©, and Certified Senior Advisor®.
In June of 2019, I was hired as Vice President and Director of Operations here at Dovetail Companies. Erin and I share the same vision, which is to help the aging community thrive in the next chapter of their lives by providing guidance and one central point of contact.
Together we are building a community of experts who will listen to seniors, understand their needs, support their families, and try to relieve stress during one of the biggest transitions of their lifetime. Our common vision and desire to help seniors thrive prompted the nickname we use to describe our partnership, “The Senior Soul Sisters”.

What people say about working with The Dovetail Group
"I wanted to personally thank you, and your support staff for all the work that was done on behalf of my mom in getting this house cleaned out and ready to sell. You and your team should be recognized for a job well done.
This process was not just difficult, but also overwhelming. You made our lives easier at a time when I truly believed selling this house and getting her situated in a better place would be a dream unfulfilled.
She is adjusting and the difficult days are becoming less frequent. Thank you again for being the people that you are. Everyone can learn something from you."
“Thank you, your staff, and associates for guiding me through the process of moving my sister. Your acceptance of the challenge eased my mind and let me tend to other immediate needs. The fact that it was all accomplished long-distance was truly professional.”
“Erin and her team are true professionals. Not only are they a pleasure to do business with, but they have also become experts in their field. They are the “go-to” group when it comes to a true, “one-stop-shop” for someone looking to sell their home but needs much more than a typical real estate agent can provide.
In addition to being an excellent real estate broker, Erin and her team do an outstanding job handling so much more than that. It’s perfect for those folks who may be looking to get into that next step of life with assisted living or a nursing home. Maybe they are looking for one company that can handle that entire process (not just the sale of the home). Their team values key relationships that allow them to take better care of their customers.”
"Dovetail is amazing, they helped us every step of the way. Marketing my home with professional photos and beautiful staging. My home was under agreement in 5 days! They also helped me to buy my new home and were always available whenever I had a question or concern.
Four years later, when our family needed to sell my parent's home, they were the only company I called. Using anyone else would be a waste of your time!"
“Thank you both for all your help and support throughout this entire process! I really appreciate it and it is a huge relief knowing everyone is now settled, and the home has been sold to a nice family. We couldn’t have done it without you.”
"I have had the pleasure of working with this company twice in a year and a half. I praise these women for what they do; they make things flow."
