Ivy has a wide range of experience in long-term care management, small business start-up, financial management, building maintenance, sales, marketing, and humans resource management. Ivy began her career as a Licensed Practical Nurse for Family Practice clinics in eastern Montana. Her career moved her into Pharmaceutical Sales for a short period, but her love for senior care moved her into an Administrator role in Assisted Living. 

Educationally, Ivy has a Bachelor of Arts degree in Communication Studies with an organizational emphasis from the University of Montana. She is also a Licensed Practical Nurse.
