Meet Our Team
“I have over 30 years of experience with Assisted Living, Memory Care and Skilled Rehab operations. Graduate of Ferris State University and Licensed Nursing Home Administrator. I live in Pennfield and raised three children with my husband of 38 years, and rescue Senior Weimaraners and Beagles. I love to spoil my 6 grandchildren and rescue pups, and spend as much time as possible in Florida.”
“For the last six years, I've been fortunate enough to work with seniors and their families as they move across the continuum of care. My husband and I live in the small, southwest Michigan town we grew up in and we have a three-year-old son who keeps us very busy. In our spare time, we spend a lot of time with our friends and family. When I happen to get a moment alone you'll find me huddled up with a good book."
“For the past 7 years, I have worked for Lakeview Assisted Living and have always had a soft spot for the senior population. Prior to that, I spent 25 years in the medical field. I have 2 grown daughters and 7 wonderful grandchildren that I spend as much time with as possible. I also have 2 big fur babies at home that keep me quite busy.”
“I have worked for the Ganton family for over 16 years, starting at the original Lansing location, which is where I live with my husband of 36 years. We have 2 adult children, one grandson, and of course our big ole’ Great Pyrenees – Leila. In our spare time, we enjoy camping, kayaking, hiking, biking & reading. I love working for Ganton’s along with enjoying the residents & all my co-workers!"

"I retired from the fire service after serving 30 years and have been with Ganton Senior Communities for over 10 years in the maintenance department. I enjoy helping our residents and they make me smile every day."
I have over 20 years experience in the Culinary field - have a passion for cooking and love cooking for others. My culinary experience comes from working in a variety of backgrounds, and I have enjoyed working in assisted living facilities over the past two years. I live in the Battle Creek area with my husband and have raised two children. In my spare time I enjoy looking for new recipes and hanging out with my four dogs.
LPN, Wellness Director
I grew up in California and moved to Michigan in 2007. I have been a nurse for 21 years and have worked with geriatrics for the duration of that time. It's truly where my passion lies. I think one of the most important things I can do as a nurse is really listening to people and get to know them. I have three children that I love spending quality time with.
