The Little Things Make All the Difference
“Through my degrees in elder law and business, I’m giving seniors a better life. My job is to be their advocate.”
Janaya Kerben’s grandmother lived with her family growing up. The LCW Class of 2009 graduate credits this experience with making her sensitive to the needs of the elderly and inspiring her career path.
Kerben received her B.S. in marketing/management and then went on to earn her MBA in health care administration at Touro’s Graduate School of Business (GSB). Currently, she’s pursuing her Juris Doctor in elder law at the Touro Law Center. Both degrees will help her embark on her mission to improve treatment and support for older patients, especially in hospital and nursing home settings.
“Someone needs to help seniors take care of themselves in every area of their lives—my job is to be their advocate.”
And to gain firsthand knowledge in her specialty, she volunteers weekly at local nursing homes and hospitals in New York.
“The few hours you spend with them…can make a huge impact.”
This is Janaya Kerben’s story.
