I am thrilled to have been invited to offer drum circles for Creston Village Assisted Living and Memory Care in Paso Robles, Avila Senior Living in Downtown SLO,  and for the “Go SeeFoundation.”  The list is growing as I begin to expand on this journey!

Creston Village: Assisted Living and Memory Care

REFERENCE LETTER:  “By way of background, my name is Juliana “Julie” Tacker; I have been a Certified Activity Director in the State of California since 1988. I have had the pleasure of working with all types of individuals in assisted living, skilled nursing, and independent facilities over my long career. Currently, I am the Life Enrichment Director at Creston Village Assisted Living and Memory Care, in Paso Robles, California. In doing so, I have had the pleasure of working with individuals who stand out among others, like Dee DiGioia. It has been a delight to work side-by-side with Dee. Dee will be bringing her drum circle to Creston Village on a bimonthly basis for the foreseeable future. Her passion and dedication are immediately apparent when you meet her. Her gift of rhythm to our residents is emotional, satisfying, and valuable to all. From tapping one’s toe, to getting up and dancing, Dee’s drum circle is fun as much as it is moving. If you are fortunate enough to meet Dee and observe her in the work she loves, you are as lucky a lucy person.”
