Avia Singleton, LPN – Nurse Manager Schuetz Manor
Joined team in 2018
I grew up in south St. Louis in the Tower Grove area. I graduated from Oakville Senior High School in 2005. I am blessed to say that I am an only child but a mother to three handsome boys named Cameron and Alexander (twins, smart 10 years old) and Aiden (1yr old) my full of personality baby boy. Being a mother means the world to me and I am completely blessed to be a mother of three sons. Never in a million years would I have thought of having three boys.
In 2005, towards the end of my senior year of high school, I received my certification as nurse assistant from South County Technical High. I worked as a CNA for two years at Bethesda Dilworth on the rehab floor and in 2008 I continued my education in the nursing field and received my certification as a medication tech. In 2011 I received my nursing LPN license.
I have worked as a nurse in many different environments; long term care, rehab, and Alzheimer’s and dementia care. I have worked in memory care for 9 years. One of my many joys of being a nurse is caring for the elderly with wholehearted compassion. When I came to Dolan I immediately fell in love with the person center care community perspective in each house setting. I love the feeling of witnessing the residents and families smiling, laughing, and dancing with the staff. I love being part of the team.
