Robert Trejo

Robert, “Brings to the table,” 15+ years in Food and Beverage. Throughout the years, he has held roles that included Lead Cook, Sous Chef, Meat fabrication, Kitchen Manager, Food and Beverage Manager and Executive Chef.  The experience and knowledge he gained in restaurants, hotels, food trucks, casinos, retirement, rehabilitation, convalescent, banquets, and caterings have prepared and given him a solid foundation of knowledge needed to take on his current role as, Director of Signature Dining at Quail Park on Cypress. Robert states that his recipe for success is made up of 3 key ingredients:

Passion + Humility + Patience = SUCCESS

“I like to understand where food comes from, and how I can maximize its potential flavor. Profiling is how I was trained. Being able to take a product or ingredient from seed to vegetation and vegetation to the table gives us a better sense of control and understanding of what we are put in our bodies, where it comes from, and how to overall capitalize on the ingredient to make it stand out to become the hero of the dish. My take on the dining program here at Cypress is a play on vintage/ rustic cooking, with a modern approach to plating and capitalization on locally grown produce, dairy and livestock.” – Robert Trejo

In his free time, Robert enjoys spending time with his children, and rooting for his favorite football team, the Raiders!


Kya Groves, COMMUNITY RELATIONS DIRECTOR at Quail Park on Cypress in Visalia, California

Kya Groves

Community Relations Director

I started in the senior care industry in 2010 as the Director of Marketing for a home care agency. When I met with seniors in their home, I discovered how many people stop being as social, don’t eat very well and don’t have a lot of fun in their life. In 2016 I began working in an active lifestyle community and saw the huge difference it made. I loved seeing people laugh, visit, eat fabulous food and regain their strength back with great fitness. I fell in love with active retirement community living and believe that enjoying your life should never stop, it should just get better! I would love to meet you and explore what your next chapter could look like at Quail Park on Cypress.
