“The only ones among you who will be really happy are those who have sought and found how to serve.” — Albert Schweitzer Amber Bergerson’s life philosophy is based on building relationships and serving those around her. After 20 highly successful years in the retail industry – where she earned four major service awards for customer satisfaction – Amber decided to pursue an even more challenging field of service: care for elders.
Inspired by her very active octogenarian grandmother, Helen, Amber took her abilities for organization and design and applied them to the task of senior move management.
With a background in merchandising and management, including a degree from Oklahoma State University, Amber is able to address many of the issues we face when relocating: staging a home for sale, downsizing, repurposing current furnishings and décor to fit a new space, and managing all the details leading up to and on moving day.
Senior Transitions LLC has now been operating in the greater OKC area for 9 years now and in Tulsa for 14. We would be so honored to help.
