Director of Therapeutic Recreation

Director of Therapeutic Recreation

From a young age, Makayla was very involved in volunteering and giving back to the community. Inspired by her father’s work in ministry and her sister’s work at Trevecca Center for Rehabilitation and Healing, Makayla began volunteering at the nursing home from a young age. It was only natural that she discovered her passion was caring for the happiness and well-being of others. She began working as a CNA, before shifting to her current role in Recreation, making those around her smile with engaging, exciting activities. Makayla grew on the team; as she shined in leadership positions, and created innovative programming, she was promoted to Director of Therapeutic Recreation. She shared, “Nashville Center is my second home; I love my CareRite family!”
