I began my life early on side by side with my father learning hands on how to operate, manage and build housing for seniors. Fast forward forty some years I continue on the legacy of my heritage with Foster Senior Living. My passion for seniors housing and providing a welcoming home for our residents and families is of utmost importance.
I began my journey with seniors in 1982 with our family business of providing exceptional senior living services to our residents. My goal is every day to provide the best care to your loved one and to be compassionate about the work we do. I call serving seniors as my calling and I do my utmost to stay committed to having strong, compassionate leaders at each community. My husband and I are very excited about our newest community coming to Collierville. We are especially excited about the addition of our common area, which will allow you and your family to have an more visiting areas for your guests. In addition our addition of our closer care neighborhoods will allow your family member to receive more individualized care when memory issues require closer support.
It has been an honor for me to work with Fosters over the years. I have worked with them for a total of 24 years, both in skilled nursing, and residential care. I’m excited to be a part of opening a new community which includes assisted-living, memory care and independent living. If I could say one thing about working with the Fosters, although there are many good things to say, I would have to say how loyal they are to their employees. As an administrator, I appreciate that, and I strive to follow that same rule with my own team members. I am very thankful to work at Springhouse Village of Springfield East, and grateful for the trust our residents, families and team members put in us and the vast amount of knowledge that the Fosters share with us.

I started my journey with Foster Senior Living in January 2020 where I served as Human Resources support at our corporate office. This time provided me with some knowledge, understanding and experience that led me to now serve as the Business Office Manager at Springhouse Village. Whether it be assisting one of our residents (my favorites), a family member or fellow staff member, each day brings new opportunities to me and I am loving being a part of this wonderful organization .
I am so proud to be a member our Springhouse Village team!
I entered the health care industry 25 years ago and have truly enjoyed every minute of it. I love working with the senior population and have gained incredible wisdom from each patient and resident I have worked with through the years. I began as a hospital social worker where I transitioned through each department. I then moved to rehab and long-term care where I learned the true gift of building relationships with the residents. I am delighted to have the opportunity to continue to build these strong relationships with both residents and family members within the Springhouse Village Touch of Grace Memory Care Community.
At home, I enjoy spending time with my husband and 2 dogs while looking for opportunities to sneak into the lives of my two college-aged sons.

Being part of the Foster Senior Living Team has been the highpoint of my career. The team at FSL is always professional, and has such an understanding of what the Senior Living market is about. Dedication, integrity, and heartfelt concern for the well-being of our residents and staff is the cornerstone of this company. Susan and John and their staff are always willing to listen and give you the support and tools needed to make your community succeed, and the residents thrive. They are a tireless team of individuals that lives out the phrase “going the extra mile” every day, and understand that the going the extra mile means going 2 extra miles.

We look forward to becoming a integral part of the beautiful Collierville area.
