Let us touch the dying, the poor, the lonely and the unwanted according to the graces we have received and let us not be ashamed or slow to do the humble work.
— Mother Teresa
Twenty years ago, Elizabeth Sukys-Rice made a lifetime commitment to improve the lives of the elderly. Her operational, management, and marketing experience in the senior housing industry has given her a keen eye for how businesses get bloated with inefficiencies and miscommunication. As an entrepreneur who quickly built her own successful management company, she’s adept at providing solutions, streamlining, and helping businesses retool to become smoother, more strategically focused organizations. Helping other business owners set priorities and create communities that provide exceptional services to the senior population is her passion and pleasure. But that’s just business…
What Does Elizabeth’s Experience Mean to You?
In his book Go Put Your Strengths to Work, Marcus Buckingham said a person is in their place of strength when they are completing a certain task and time seems to fly by. Elizabeth is a solutions seeker, a leader with a creative mind and compassion for the older adult demographic. When she works with clients in search of care options, time stands still for her. Her commitment to finding answers results in deep connections with her clients. She finds strength in guiding those who are not equipped or don’t possess the knowledge to obtain help for themselves.
History and Education
Elizabeth’s positions have been in areas of property management, geriatric care management, social work, admissions, and administration processes. Her respect for knowledge and education led her to pursue her Bachelor’s Degree in psychology (while working full time). Later, she acquired her Master’s Degree in Social Work. She’s obtained a certification as a functional aging specialist and a group fitness instructor. Her ultimate goal was not to become a more respected, educated, and credentialed individual, but to expand her opportunities to serve the older adult in need.
Elizabeth currently lives in Pinellas County, Florida. When she’s not working, you’ll find her writing in her daily dialog book, tinkering with her classic car, or engrossed in nature with her friends and family. A deeply spiritual individual, Elizabeth nourishes her body and soul with regular meditation and by teaching yoga and spin, (the Yin and Yang of fitness) in a group fitness setting many times weekly.
