Licensed Vocational Nurse (LVN)
Julie graduated from the Joe G Davis Vocational Nursing Program in Huntsville, TX and received her nursing license in 1994. Her 25 years of experience in nursing work has primarily focused on caring for the elderly, with 15 years dedicated to Home Health for senior citizens. Her experiences on the job include case management, new hire training, wound care, venipuncture, Alzheimer’s management, and providing instruction to families and caregivers about proper elder care. She has always loved caring for assisted living residents as though they were her own family, and her passion earned her three consecutive Nurse of the Year awards from a previous employer.
Julie has been friends with UCC owners Buck and Terry for over ten years and has always admired their reputation in the eldercare community. Her job at Unlimited Care Cottages feels like the natural progression of her career to continue providing top-notch care to homebound seniors and assisted living residents.
When she’s not working, Julie loves spending time with her fiance, her son, and her three dogs. She also loves to travel and experiment with new foods and new experiences everywhere she goes.
Handle With Care Manager
From the time Amber was a little girl, her family taught her the importance of caring for the elderly and their needs. They had an elderly neighbor that they would help out by tending to her yard, purchasing her groceries and taking care of any day to day needs she might have. She ended up being an adopted grandmother to the family. Her family would also minister and sing in local skilled nursing facilities. After high school Amber attended Christ for the Nations Institute in Dallas, TX. While there she volunteered in skilled nursing and assisted living facilities. During this time Amber also traveled around the world as a vocalist, ministering in churches. She then attended Lamar University in Beaumont, TX and received an Associates Degree in Medical Administration. After completing her degree, she went to Costa Rica for a year and attended the Spanish Language Institute of Costa Rica where she had the opportunity to not only learn the language but to minister in churches. Amber returned to the states, got married, and took the next 10 years to focus on being a mommy to her two sons.
After staying home for year 10, it was time to launch back out into the work force. Amber accepted a position as Administrative Assistant with Carter Home Healthcare. After sitting behind a desk for several years learning the industry she was promoted to Professional Sales Coordinator. She worked in the field for a year gaining experience. Amber then accepted the position of Area Manager with Encompass Home Healthcare. Working in the industry for over 7 years, Amber and her husband, Steven, recognized a need and started a senior home safety company, Handle With Care. She and her husband, who is a Woodlands Firefighter, work together spreading the word about their company and educating on the need for senior home safety and the ongoing risk of falls. Amber not only manages Handle With Care, but is now also the Life Enrichment and Marketing Liaison for the Unlimited Care Cottages where she continues to give and be a resource to our local Seniors.
Resident Care Coordinator
Hello, my name is Sonia Botello and I am originally from Mexico. I came to the US in 1976 at age 14 and graduated from John H Reagan HS. I became a US citizen in 1996. I got married in 1983 and have 4 beautiful kids and proud to be a grandma of 2 lovely grandchildren. Working with kids and seniors is my passion and I am so fortunate to be able to combine the two. I became employed with Unlimited Care through a former resident, Mr. Dale. I was his private caregiver for 5 years and when he moved into one of the cottages at Unlimited Care, that’s how I met Buck & Terri. I feel like that is when I became part of what I call my second family. I have been with Unlimited Care Cottages for 4 years and my title has progressed to Resident Care Coordinator which involves so many different details that I love overseeing and being involved with. This is truly my life’s calling.
Born and raised in Conroe, TX, Adriana Flores has always focused on customer service and caring for others. Whether she was at home or working at Kohls or Shoe Carnival, she loved to take care of her customers and ensure they left happy.
Adriana’s passion for helping others extended into her personal life as well as her professional career. When a loved one needed a caretaker, she was always the first of her siblings to volunteer. When a friend introduced her to UCC owners Buck and Terri, she realized she had found her true calling in the elder care field. She loves building friendships with the residents, providing the love and care they need, and leaving a positive impact on everyone she helps.
When she’s not at work, Adriana loves to spend time with her family and attend her 9-year-old’s baseball and soccer games.
SHANNON HILL, RN, BSN
I started my nursing career later in life. I was blessed to be able to be a stay at home Mom while my children were young. After graduating from nursing school in Missouri, I worked in a hospital on the med-surg floor for 5 years. We then were transferred to Texas with my husband’s job. Thankfully I was able to take a little time off to get settled in our new surroundings. Most recently, before working for Unlimited Care, I worked for a local hospice company
I feel very blessed to be working with such wonderful residents, gifted caregivers, and also Terri, Buck, Candace, and the entire Unlimited Care family.
