Being a senior move manager was the natural evolutionary step from Lee’s prior 25 years experience in administration, organizational management, research, counseling, and relocation. After working as a social research assistant at UCLA and UNC respectively, she started and ran an organizational management business for 10 years before becoming a manager at a local moving company. Three years later, she returned to school to earn a graduate degree in clinical psychology. Her last semester in graduate school, she began working with seniors to help them relocate (utilizing her entire skill set while throwing a little muscle into the mix). She loved it so much, she’s been doing it since for two decades.
Six years ago, she had the great good fortune of meeting Christine on a job. In her own words: What Christine brings to our business partnership is incalculable. In addition to superior administrative, organizational, and supervisory skills, she has a remarkably sophisticated sense of interior design and decoration. Because of that, we’ve been able to add “staging” to our menu of services. No one before or since has her capacity to work as conscientiously or skillfully with seniors (or anyone else), or with more integrity. Best of all, working with her has made me a better person. Priceless.
Christine’s interest in Senior Move Management comes naturally. As a navy brat who moved countless times, she learned the essentials of successful relocation early on – adaptability, resourcefulness and resilience.
Her nomadic life contributed to an interesting and diverse career in management and human resources. After a corporate layoff, she started a downsizing/relocation company. During that process she had the good fortune to meet Lee Glenn, at PRO, and the rest is history. Her only regret is that she didn’t get into the business sooner. She loves the challenges and satisfaction that come with coordinating and solving complex relocation issues for seniors and their families. To a greater extent, she loves listening to client “stories.” On its surface, Senior Move Management is about moving and dealing with peoples’ stuff. But in reality it’s about respecting and acknowledging that possessions are what make people who they are: Their stuff is their story.
