In May of 2017 he embraced a new role as our Business Office Manager. He brings to our community over 19 years of valuable experience in the management and maintenance of large multifamily apartment complexes. Roger has proven to be exceptionally passionate about working with our senior population, and takes the greatest degree of care, pride and pleasure in assisting them with their needs, no matter how trivial. He has a deep affection for each of our residents, and can often be heard laughing and joking with them in the hallways, or quietly talking to them about their diversely unique life stories – “I find it especially rewarding and interesting learning about their incredible lives, and as I watch them relay their stories I see the youthful light reawakened in their eyes. Those are the moments that truly feed my soul.”
In his off time, Roger enjoys spending time with his wife, Cheryl, their dog Leo, and (fat) cat Joey. He and Cheryl enjoy vacationing in their motor home, trying to play golf, home brewing, and to immerse himself in the pages of his favorite author’s latest novel (Wilbur Smith).
