Letter from the Executive Director

Hi, and welcome to Maple Leaf Senior Living!

With over 25 years of healthcare experience, 11 of which have been in senior living, I couldn’t be more satisfied with my choice to work with seniors and appreciative for the opportunity to be Maple Leaf's executive director.

I first took an interest in senior living while obtaining my Master’s Degree in Health Sciences. I took a class in Gerontology and had an opportunity to visit an Assisted Living Community. I was so impressed to see how lively the community was, which was in drastic contrast to my recollections of those old Convalescent Hospitals I visited as a child. What really sold me was the passion their executive director exuded. You could really tell that she loved her job and that she was fulfilled in her life’s work.  That was it. I was sold. I changed my career path from Physician Group Management into Assisted Living Management and I have loved every minute of it since. 

All assisted living communities offer care and basic amenities, but we provide so much more. Our team strives to embrace each resident as their own unique individual and provide individualized care. From the residents, to employees and management, we all share the same drive to care for one another with dignity and respect. If you or a loved one is considering Maple Leaf,  I’d like to personally invite you into our community to meet with me and the rest of my team. Feel free to call me at 206-729-1200 or email me at executivedirector@mapleleafseniors.com to schedule a tour and see all that we have to offer.
