While working on her degree she also received a Certificate in Gerontology. After graduating Ariel went to The University of Georgia where she earned her Masters of Social Work degree.

After beginning her Social Work career in Atlanta, Georgia, Ariel relocated to Austin. She began working for a hospice and home health company. In 2010, while still working as a hospice social worker, Ariel started Texas Family Services (TFS). TFS was founded to help families find housing options for seniors. Ariel had already toured and worked in many of the communities so it was a natural fit.

In 2013 Ariel expanded TFS to also include Geriatric Case Management services. In 2013 Ariel’s grandfather’s illness found her helping to navigate the complexities of his care. The guidance she provided in managing long-term care insurance, private caregivers, and the medical professionals helped to alleviate family stress. Throughout this personal experience, Ariel recognized how important case management services are to seniors and their families.
