MaryAnn brings over ten years of Senior Living experience to her role as Executive Director. Her love for seniors was fostered from a very young age. "I remember visiting assisted living communities with my church group as a child. While other children cowered into my Sunday school teacher's legs, I felt drawn to those wrinkles of unknown origin. I don’t know if it was the warmth in their hugs, wisdom in their faces, or sheer appreciation of someone wanting to visit with them that drew me in, but it was that very feeling that engulfed my soul for the many years to follow."
Before joining Watercrest Winter Park, MaryAnn worked at another senior living community for 8 years achieving high census and strong financial results. Her servant leadership builds strong teams that drive remarkable results with stewardship, integrity and a culture of caring. MaryAnn is a licensed Assisted Living Administrator, former Florida Department of Elder Affairs core training speaker, Board of the Case Manager Symposium of Florida and an active member of Florida Argentum.
MaryAnn has been married to her husband Reggie for 25 years. They have been blessed with three sons; Donovan, 29 years old, Zachariah, 28 years old and Tony Ray, 21 years old, who are all pursuing college degrees at the University of Central Florida in Orlando, Florida. MaryAnn enjoys relaxing on the beach, cooking, theme parks and spending time with family and friends.
