Michael genuinely asked what I wanted not just within my future at Fox Trail Memory Care Living, but he also wanted to know what I personally wanted within my future, persoanlly and professionally. It meant a lot to me, as a new employee Michael was able to take the time out to speak with me.

Title: Executive Director LPN, LALA
What community/communities do you serve: Fox Trail Senior Living at Stephens City, VA. Additionally, I provide support to the teams in our Front Royal, Manassas and Orange communities with nursing oversight.
Favorite part about working for Fox Trail Senior Living: I enjoy being able to care for our residents each day, and care for their families and our teams that provide care. Fox Trail Senior Living allows us to live and breathe while “making a difference.” As a team, we do that each and every day. Every moment is memorable, and we work to make every moment count for our residents.
Favorite memory while working at Fox Trail Senior Living: I love watching each community become more than a structure, but become a living, breathing home for us those that we are privileged enough to care for. Fox Trail Senior Living has provided the tools and the environment to allow for our residents to flourish. Our team recognizes each resident as their own relevant and unique individual. We are all about providing personal care and this creates an environment in which we can create favorite memories everyday!
Favorite dessert: Carrot cake, but chocolate ice cream is a very close second.
What’s a fun fact about you: I am ambidextrous and have a photographic memory. I also write poems, and have even had one published!
Our family chose Memory Care Living because of its location and family feeling atmosphere. There are only 16 residents which enables each person to receive individualized attention as well as a private bedroom. We prefer that meals are freshly prepared on site in the house kitchen. The staff is very welcoming and encourages family and friends to visit.
