Fabiola Valcin

Senior Lifestyle Counselor

Born in Haiti and raised in West Palm Beach, worked in the senior living industry since I was 16 years old. Started off as a server and instantly felt drawn to the senior living industry. I went on to work as a receptionist, HHA, then Activities Director. In 2014, my family and I went through a tough time due to my grandfather suffering from Alzheimer’s disease. At that time, not knowing the process of moving a loved one to a community made the process very difficult. As I started to learn more, I vowed to always educate and help families going through the same thing.  Before joining the team at Mariposa, I was a Marketing Director at an Assisted Living community, that role allowed me to utilize my skills to help and educate prospects and families about quality of life in senior Living. My current Role at Mariposa allows me to do the same.
