Paige Healy, RD, LD

Assistant Director and LifeChoices® at Bethany Advocate
I am a Registered Dietitian and earned my Bachelor of Science in Dietetics from Iowa State University and completed my dietetic internship at Concordia College in Moorhead, Minnesota. While going to school in Ames, I fell in love with the town and the surrounding communities. I now live with my husband, Erick, and our Australian Shepard, Chance, in Story City. When I’m not at work I love to exercise, spend time outdoors, read, listen to music and try out new recipes! I have a true passion for health and wellness and helping others be the best version of themselves. My favorite part about my job is that I have so many opportunities to reach and help people. I get to make a difference in so many lives and help our LifeChoices members live healthy, happy lives and stay in their homes independently while they age in place.

Heather Estes

LifeChoices® at Bethany Advocate

I currently live in Nevada with my husband Kurt, two children Brooklyn and Logan and our spoiled dog Zeus. I came from a large family and I was raised in a small town in central Iowa. Some of my hobbies include traveling, camping, and enjoying the outdoors. As a family we are also avid Minnesota Viking football fans. I absolutely enjoy spending my free time with family and friends, and of course the scenery while on the back of my husband’s motorcycle. Before becoming an Advocate for Life Choices, I successfully owned and operated a licensed daycare in my home for 15 years. My passion has and will always be to care for and help others. I am currently enrolled at DMACC for the spring session to start my CNA classes. I am scheduled to complete the classes at the end of April 2022. This will give me additional knowledge and skills to better assist our aging members to remain in their homes.
