Amy Rosenberg
Resident Services Coordinator

I completed my undergraduate studies at the University of Arizona and taught kindergarten for a few years thereafter. I then decided to continue my education in New York, where I obtained my master’s degree at Yeshiva University. From there, I relocated to Tampa, FL where I practiced social work for 20 years at a women’s hospital, and built my family. I now have two sons, Josh, 20, who is studying at Michigan State University, and Jake, 18, who is studying at the University of Arizona. I am very dedicated to my work, and our residents and am grateful to be part of such a supportive Jewish community.


Bracha Drissman
Recreational Therapist

I’ve been fortunate to be a part of the wonderful team at Jewish Senior Life since 2005.  My passion is working with older adults, particularly those with memory related disorders.  With a degree and certification in Therapeutic Recreation, I get to put that passion to use every day while engaged in fun, enriching and goal-oriented activities with the wonderful residents of the Brown Memory Care Pavilion.  When work feels like play and coworkers and those that you care for feel like family, you truly know that you’re in the right place!
