CANTON REGENCY COMMUNITY - Key Persons
Being part of a family of nurses, I knew right away where I wanted to spend my life's passion. I have been a nurse for 17 years in various roles throughout my experience. Senior Living has always been a passion of mine and I feel that caring for our elders and giving back to our community makes me feel whole. Every day we make an enormous difference in creating a safe, home-like, generous, and loving space for senior living. Everyday I get to come to work and witness how we at The Canton Regency assist our residents with retaining a purpose of life, energy and love.
When I am not working, I spend my time with my family. My partner Jeff, my two girls Kendyl and Ragyn and our furry kids Charlie, Fynn and Stanley.

I've been with Canton Regency for 17 years now! I really enjoyed the fact that everyone feels like family here and all of the staff would pitch in without being asked to get the job done. I oversee our accounting functions and make sure that everything is done timely and accurately. I also make sure that our team members who care for our residents are paid timely and accurately.

- Housekeeping & Laundry Director
I handle any and all laundry and housekeeping functions here at Canton Regency. This is one of the biggest and most crucial departments at Canton Regency and I have 22 years of management experience. I have had the pleasure of working at Canton Regency for 11 years and hopefully this speaks volumes about how much I love the team and our residents!
We are in the service business and it is my job to work with our residents and family members on any issues or concerns they have. I have been known to spread random acts of kindness throughout the building, like handwritten notes under doors and birdfeeders outside their windows.
- Physical Therapist & Therapy Coordinator
I have been at Canton Regency for 4 months but have devoted my whole career of 26 years to working with seniors. I have a degree in Physical Therapy and a BSBA degree in Marketing from the University of Akron. The diversity of residents at Canton Regency is what makes my job so rewarding. This could be anything from helping a resident build tolerance by walking for 20 plus minutes, to helping another resident learn how to stand and walk
- Community Relations Coordinator
I graduated from Colorado Technical University in 2012 with an MBA in Business Administration. I have been at Canton Regency for 11 years and before that I spent 3 years working at a skilled nursing facility and 18 years at a hospital.
I love getting to know each of our residents and learning more about their life experiences. They know I am always there to help, whether it's figuring a cell phone issue to answering questions about services we can provide. It brings me joy to go above and beyond providing excellent customer service for our residents and families. I've heard some amazing stories in my many years with the Regency!
I have been a nurse for 16 years and in the healthcare industry for 18 years. I've held various roles in different facilities/communities which all have led to my experience and passion that I have today to do my job. What I love most about my job is having the opportunity to help and comfort people in their most vulnerable stage of life. When I'm not taking care of residents or helping staff, I enjoy shopping, vacationing and spending time with my family, my husband Josh, my 2 step sons and our 3 dogs.
I've been at the Canton Regency for 27 years and I've worked in many capacities, including receptionist, sales, and marketing. I'm usually the very first person you will see when you come to Canton Regency and my goal is always to provide a warm and inviting feel for any new resident or guest.
I'm responsible for helping make Canton Regency festive for all holidays and events. This includes new resident dinners, honoring our veterans, and decorating for the holidays.
I absolutely love talking to our residents! When they come up to me with questions they think I'm helping them but they are helping me too!
