John comes to The Heathers Senior Homes with 35 years of leadership experience in education, employment training, and within the last 15 years in the senior living field. Prior to joining The Heathers Family inspired program, John served the residents and their families as a Regional Vice President of Operations, Regional Director of Sales and Marketing, Executive Director, and Senior Director of Sales and Marketing.
John has trained many professionals in the senior living field in customer service, sales, marketing, creative events, and organizational systems. He strongly believes that those who serve humanity by providing compassionate care, and outstanding services and amenities for the community elders, have been given a great opportunity to make a difference in their lives, and at the end of the day a gratifying feeling of accomplishment.
John is married to Nora and has five children, one daughter and four sons, and he values the time he spends with them. He also enjoys cultural events, reading, sports, writing, and meaningful discussions. He believes that open, honest, and constant communication is one of the fundamental elements of a fulfilled life.
His philosophy of senior living is loving and transparent: “We exist to offer the best possible environment for the elders to enjoy a life in the sunset of their journey on this beautiful planet, and to provide support for their family members to know that their loved ones receive the services they deserve. We must honor the value of living until our last breath, for time is the priceless gift of God to the world.”
John - Welcome to our Family!
