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.

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 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.”
