Amy Shaw, LIFE ENGAGEMENT DIRECTOR at Quail Park at Shannon Ranch in Visalia, California

Amy Shaw

Life Engagement Director

I don’t originally come from the Senior Living industry, my professional background is in Hospitality and the Event industry, and it is my passion. It started very organically for me. In college my major was Interior Design. I also had a second major of Food and Nutrition. When The Tachi Palace Hotel & Casino opened their hotel and casino expansion in October of 2005, a VIP Host department was added and the first major formal event for our property VIP guests was the New Year 2005/2006 Event.

This is where my Event career began. From that time forward, I was doing 1-2 events a month for 350+ guests. In 2013 I planned a yearlong corporate 30th Anniversary event culminating with a Gala for 800 guests. The guests list included dignitaries from many other California Tribal Councils, as well as a former Lt. Governor Cruz Bustamante and the CA Rep, Andy Vidak.

Kya Groves, COMMUNITY RELATIONS DIRECTOR at Quail Park at Shannon Ranch 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 at Shannon Ranch.
