Alan entered the first Physician Assistant class at UNM and returned to Acoma to work. In 2007 they moved to Rye to be closer to his family and to get out of the city... "I've worked in our building for about 10 years and for Genesis since it bought Pueblo Care and Rehab. I have great affection for the facility and the staff because so many people who work here really care about the residents. They go above and beyond to help the residents and give them comfort. My dad and my mother-in- law both spent their final years here and I knew their care was excellent . It made seeing them go a little bit easier."
