About Melissa

Melissa’s experience in the senior care industry includes time as a marketing director, regional sales specialist, and regional director of sales in the assisted living, independent living, memory care and home care fields. She joined the senior living industry because she wanted to make a difference in the lives of seniors. Her grandparents played a crucial role in her upbringing and she sees this as a way to give back and honor them. Her knowledge and experience, both personal and professional, give her a keen understanding of what a challenging journey it is to find the right senior living community to call “home.” She is sensitive not only to the needs of the families we serve but to challenges of the professionals as well.

What I'm passionate about:

My family is my world and when I’m not working I am spending time with my husband and the light of my life, my two year old daughter. I didn’t know my heart was capable of so much love until she entered the world. I also enjoy spending time with our four legged kids (two rescued doggies), and I LOVE to cook, it’s my “therapy.”

A Note From Melissa

"Searching for senior living options can be stressful to say the least, each situation as unique as the client themselves. I am dedicated to ensuring that professionals have every available resource at their disposal to make the transition a seamless one. My mission is to make your job easier and give you peace of mind that the families you serve are in good hands with us."
