Chris grew up in Lake Whitney, Texas and has been in the long-term care field for ten years, spending most of his time focused on assisted living. Chris is a certified activity director, assisted living manager, crisis hotline worker, and is currently pursuing a degree in psychology with a focus on gerontology. From business office manager to executive director, “it’s truly a pleasure to be at the helm of the best senior community in the state.”
He enjoys the day-to-day social interaction of a senior living community. “Working in a dynamic senior environment is an honor to me to take care of our residents, while being able to build relationships with them and their loved ones too.”
Memory Care Director
Ericka started her career as a caregiver at Quail Park in 2011. She had the opportunity to work with Independent Living, Assisted Living and Memory Care. She quickly fell in love with residents with dementia. Ericka then realized the passion she had for the field and decided to go to medical assistant school.
She graduated in 2014 as a Certified Medical Assistant & Phlebotomist. In 2015, she left her Quail Park family to work for a physician in an office setting. It was a great experience working there. However, she was missing a big part of her…her residents!
“In 2017, Quail Park gave me the opportunity to return to this wonderful community as their Memory Care Program Director. In this position, I am responsible for ensuring our residents are honored with dignity and respect. It is so rewarding to see how they enjoy each moment to the fullest. I am blessed to be back at Quail Park and it is truly an honor to be a part of this great team.”
Health & Wellness Director
Cheri grew up in a home where they were taught there is no greater gift you can give others but to serve them. Her father was a Vietnam Veteran who served a lifetime career in the Army and her mother was a nurse. As a child, Cheri’s parents were great examples of how caring for others can provide huge rewards for those that serve. Because of their example, she always had a passion to become a nurse. Her nursing career has consisted of Hospital ER, ICU, Medical/Surgical and Labor and Delivery followed by 10+ years of Home Health nursing.
Cheri lives in Granbury with her husband, Walter. They have two children, Taylor and Kendyl, who both attend Texas Tech University in Lubbock. “They are my greatest blessings!”
Cheri joined the Quail Park team in May of 2016 and feels incredibly grateful to have the opportunity to share in enriching the lives of our family of residents.
Community Relations Directors
Julie recently moved to Texas from Michigan to help care for her father-in-law.
She has had the privilege of working with seniors for 25 years, in Skilled Nursing and Durable Medical Equipment.
She found a home very quickly at Quail Park. “I have been embraced by co-workers and residents in the most welcoming manner. It is a testament to the Quail Park community. I look forward to meeting you and helping you or your loved one transition to a home at Quail Park of Granbury.”
Business Office Manager
Shelly has worked in geriatrics for over 14 years. She began her career as a caregiver in an assisted living facility and worked her way to obtain the title of Wellness Director. I am now very privileged to be a part of the Quail Park family, serving as the Business Office Manager. Her people skills, coupled with her love of the seniors, has enabled her to be successful in the senior living community.
When she’s not working she’s enjoying spending time with family, friends, and anything that involves being outdoors.
