Assistant Executive Director

My career in Senior Living began as a volunteer in Life Enrichment. This, along with caring for my mother in her last days, gave me a servant’s heart towards our seniors. In addition to my own family, which includes a new husband, 4 children and a new grandson, I now have a host of other friends and family that I am privileged to interact with at Governor’s Ridge on a daily basis. It warms my heart knowing I have been part of making someone’s day a little brighter with a smile or a kind word. We’d love to meet you here at The Ridge!

Richard Sellers

Executive Chef

Hello, my name is Richard Sellers, I was born in Mishawaka Indiana and when I was a child my parents worked for cable TV and I was able to live in different 48 states. This gave me the chance to learn of different cultures and different foods which I have grown a passion for in cooking, especially desserts and pastries. I have gathered a lot of culinary knowledge through working in restaurants, delis and other food establishments. More importantly I got most of my skills from my mom, grandma, and great grandma as they showed me throughout my life the techniques I use today. When I was 23 I finally got my GED and then got my degree in accounting. The smiles and joy I see from our residents at Governors Ridge gives me great satisfaction and lets me know that I am having a positive impact by providing good and nutritious meals.

Loving our residents and keeping them healthy, happy and active is not only my job, but my passion. I am truly blessed to wake up each morning and know that I am a part of being able to enrich the lives of so many people. Whether it’s spending one-on-one time with someone or just sitting around the table crafting with the residents, I love everything about being a Life Enrichment Director. I started my career in Senior Care as a CNA and over the years, I became interested in not only the physical care side but also helping our residents to HAVE FUN on a daily basis!
