Jerri’s experience with senior care began long before she graduated high school. Her mother was an activity director in a skilled nursing home, and she volunteered every day after school, singing, playing the piano and visiting with the seniors who resided there. Seniors have always held a special place in her heart. Three of her family members had Alzheimer’s disease, which has given her significant insight into the effects this has on families. Jerri is a Certified Dementia Practitioner®, Florida administrator CORE trained, and a certified Eden Alternative® associate. With over thirty years’ experience in senior care, Jerri is passionate about ensuring families receive the consideration and support they need when making life altering decisions. “My dedication encompasses making sure that residents receive the best care and quality of life experiences. Navigating senior care, especially memory care, is extremely challenging. My mission is to guide families safely through this journey.”
In her spare time, Jerri enjoys spending time with her children, grandchildren and her very spoiled chiweenie, Coco.

Melaniee always had a desire to help people which led her to go to nursing school. However, once she began working in healthcare, she ventured into programming and never looked back. She loves the interaction she gets to have with residents in a non-medical way. For the last twelve years, she has provided memory care residents with meaningful living.
Because of Melaniee’s computer and organizational skills, she transitioned into the administration manager role where she still gets to interact with the residents while keeping the front office fully functional.
In her spare time, Melaniee enjoys being outdoors with her two children. She also trains and competes in obstacle course racing.
