Leadership

Jo Dee Gibson –  Executive Director

Jo Dee Gibson was born and raised in Southern California.  She studied business and marketing at Pasadena City College and proceeded to work in not-for-profit, faith-based organizations, in particular senior communities since 1991.  Passionate about providing quality care and services, the move to SLC was a natural fit.

In her free time, Jo Dee loves to go bike riding at the beach, relax by the pool or doing crafts with her 9 grandchildren.  Grateful for an amazing family and group of friends, Jo Dee strives to provide opportunities for seniors to give as well as receive care.  At SLC, we are blessed with leadership that places the need to improve residents’ quality of life over and above the inevitable objections to change.  Our home is rich with healthy relationships, where one thing is certain, the joys of life have nothing to do with age.

Brandi McGinnis – Director of Resident Services

Brandi is the ninja who makes sure that the residents receive a carefree life at SLC, have the freedom to pursue their hobbies, and that all their queries and issues are addressed properly.

A mother of two, Brandi’s compassion and commitment, and her skills in customer service, accounting, and event and travel coordination are the qualities that make her invaluable to the community.

Katie Wilson – Director of Life Enrichment

Katie is a state-certified RCFE Activity Leader. Fueled with the raw passion of a person who genuinely loves to indulge in creative activities, she brings to the table a broad range of outings and activities for senior residents.

With a professional background in senior care, non-profit work and education, and a personal interest in gardening, music, art and graphic design, she is equipped with the best qualities for a Director of Life Enrichment.

Lily Roman – Director of Wellness

Lily as Director of Wellness, is an experienced Licensed Vocational Nurse possessing integrity, dependability and providing excellent care to all she serves.  The best part of joining our team has been the open and trusting relationships she has developed with residents, colleagues and staff.

She loves nature, guitar, pencil drawing, languages and the Bible.  She appreciates people from different cultures.  Beekeeping is an exciting, inspiring and engaging activity she and her husband enjoy.  Lily and her team are committed to meet the needs of our residents by providing individualized, person-centered care in an environment that supports professional practice and employee engagement.

Cari Scott – Director of Human Resources & Payroll

Cari started with SLC as the receptionist and quickly moved into her current Human Resources role.. which was natural since she has 20 + years of experience in this field.  She understands the residents and strives to find the most caring and loving people to work on our campus.  Though Cari is a native Californian, she enjoys spending time in Arizona out on the lake boating and fishing in the hot summer sun.  At home she enjoys her year-round vegetable garden that started when her two girls were young; now they are in college.  There is nothing better than home grown veggies which includes everything from asparagus, snow peas, to cauliflower and broccoli!
