Marci Howard, M.Ed.
Yakima Senior Placement Advisor

I have earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Human Nutrition from Washington State University and a master's degree in Mental Health Counseling from Heritage University. I have over four years of experience as a Social Worker for the State of Washington where I assessed and placed hundreds of individuals in long-term care settings matching their unique characteristics, preferences, and needs. I spent the past 8 years as a long-term care surveyor/licensor for the State of Washington.

In that position I gained exclusive, wide-ranging knowledge of the care facilities in all central Washington counties.  I am devoted to working with families and individuals to help navigate the overwhelming process of looking for that specific “fit” to call home.  I seek not only to meet a person’s health care needs in an appropriate setting, but also to ensure a sense of peace, belonging and emotional wellbeing.  Most importantly I strive to meet and help people “where they are.”  I sincerely believe every individual should feel empowered to make informed decisions that will fulfill their personal needs and desires.
