Activity Director

I have worked at Sentinel Pointe since 2013. I began as a waitress in the dining room while attending school and then became a supervisor. I have been fortunate to continue to grow at Sentinel and am now Activities Director, where I am able to use all of my skills and talents to bring joy and happiness to other people. I enjoy leading and helping others, along with being active and creative. Outside of work, I enjoy spending time at the gym, painting, hiking, traveling, and running my makeup business. One of the many things I have enjoyed over the years working here is the many meaningful relationships I have developed with staff and residents. I love walking into work knowing the impact I am making on others, while they also make an impact on me.

David Snow

Executive Chef

I spent most of my childhood in 7 different countries, and their surrounding borders which gave me the chance to experience a vast amount of worldly cuisines that made a good enough impression that I became a chef. Landing in Michigan some 17 years ago, I have been fortunate enough to work at some of the top restaurants and learn from some great chefs along the way. In my free time I enjoy going golfing, playing tennis and spending time with my son.

Office Manager

I feel thankful everyday to come to work and be surrounded by laughter and warmth.  It’s always a highlight of my day to walk down our Main Street and chat with residents and their families as close friends.  I’ve learned that every resident has a story, and some of our residents have played a part in major historical events.  I feel honored that over the years I’ve met residents in all walks of life, from artists and musicians to politicians and war heroes, even a female pilot!  I feel blessed for the personal and professional growth I’ve been afforded during my years here.
