Leo immigrated to America just four years ago. His first job was working at a memory care community as a culinary aid. Leo realized his passion for serving seniors and over the years has worked his way up to director of culinary services at his community. Leo wants the seniors he serves to be able to experience dining as they would at a nice restaurant. During a recent visit to Catalina Island, Leo ordered crepes so that he could watch how they were made and then commented, "It will be hard to make them for 96 people but I can do it!" Leo doesn't see the residents’ memory loss - he sees people he respects and who deserve the best he can give them.
Leo takes the time to visit with each resident. He joins them in activities, always makes them feel special, and can often be seen dancing with residents. Leo always has a positive attitude and a smile on his face. He says that his job has given him the opportunity to live his dream and is always willing to mentor others and help them find the same joy.
