  • Julie Bello

    Lifestyle Director

    My name is Julie Bello. I’m currently the Lifestyle Director at Carefield Living memory care in Pleasanton, California. Prior to working in healthcare, I had worked in office administration as well as a marketing and research coordinator, and interfacing with sales and procurement. My career in healthcare began in 2007, working as a homecare provider to seniors in their homes and in senior living communities. My passion stemmed from providing care for my aged parents (now deceased) and the bond I share with my family. Over the last 10 years. I have enjoyed working with and connecting with seniors, putting smiles on their faces as well as enriching their lives. My rule of thumb is getting to know everyone’s history, in order to provide individualized activity to meet their needs. In 2016, I took my career to the next level by taking an Activity Professional Leadership course to acquaint myself with the industry’s policies and regulations. I find it rewarding working with the seniors, knowing that at the end of the day, I have made a difference in their lives. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family, listening to music, documentaries, radio talk shows and relaxing.
