Our Leadership Team

Hudie Langston Executive Director Legacy Ridge At Brookstone

Hudie Langston

Executive Director

Please allow me to introduce myself, my name is Hudie Langston. I’m a native of Michigan and have resided in Georgia for 30-plus years. I have a passion for serving seniors and have worked in the Senior Living/Long Term Care industry for 14 plus years as an Assisted Living Executive Director and a Skilled Nursing Administrator. I have received several accolades/awards such as Assisted Living Administrator of the year from the American College of Health Care Administrator (ACHAC); received Silver and Bronze Quality Awards from the American Health Care Association/National Center for Assisted Living (AHCA/NCAL); and I was in the first group of Administrators in the state of Georgia to graduate from the Georgia Health Care Association’s Georgia Leader Program (GHCA).

I am extremely excited to be a part of the Atlas Senior Living family and afforded the privilege to serve our residents, family members, and staff. My vision for Legacy Ridge at Brookstone is:

  • For it to be a thriving community
  • A community where residents are provided for with dignity and respect
  • A place where employees feel that they are appreciated and recognized for exceptional performance
  • A place where families feel secure with the care that is being provided to their loved ones that are entrusted to our care
  • A place where strategic goals are being achieved

I enjoy leisure/recreational activities such as working out, reading, spending time with family and friends, sporting events (an Atlanta Falcons fan), musical concerts, bowling, roller skating, playing board games, traveling, and watching movies. In addition, I volunteer monthly at Margie’s House Inc., a non-profit organization established to connect the disadvantaged with the resources needed to become self-sustaining.

Sales & Marketing Director

My passion for seniors began while visiting my grandmother at her Assisted Living home.

The residents were delightful, and excited to share with me their latest creation during craft time and loved to just chat. They all had amazing stories to tell of their life. This began my 14-year journey of serving seniors in different capacities, Home Health, Program Service Director and now as the Sales and Marketing Director here at Legacy Ridge Brookstone.

I am here to help families as they navigate a time of change in their loved one’s life. It is very rewarding when someone moves in feeling apprehensive, starts making new friends, finds interesting things to enjoy and begins to flourish!

When people ask me where I’m from, my response is, well I’m an “Army Brat”. 

While my Dad served our country, I spent my first 3 years in Berlin Germany, unfortunately I was too young to remember. Then back to the States for several more stops along the way.

I am the mother of 8 children, so I suppose you could say I’m a caregiver at heart.

In our free time, my husband and I love to spend time with our family, on the lake boating, traveling, and snuggling up with our 2 fur babies.

Stacey Wheeler

Business Office Manager

Hello, my name is Stacey Wheeler and I love being part of the team at Legacy Ridge at Brookstone. I began my career in the hospitality industry working for the Hyatt Regency Atlanta and then the JW Marriott at Buckhead. I moved over to managing apartment communities in the multi-family housing industry, where I spent 25 years taking care of the way people live. I have a strong customer service background and moving into my role here was a natural transition and more relaxed. I enjoy being with our residents and playing Bingo with them on weekends when I work.

I grew up in Peachtree City, Georgia and attended Georgia State University. My husband and I have lived in Acworth for the past 20 years. We have two sons and a dog named Beckham, who is spoiled rotten. Life has calmed down a little now that our youngest has his driver’s license and so I spend my free time on my baking business making custom decorated cookies.

Linda Lucas, Wellness Director | Legacy Ridge at Brookstone

Linda Lucas

Wellness Director

Throughout my life, my passion for caring for others has been the driving force behind my decisions and aspirations. My journey started at an early age when I had the privilege of assisting my mother in caring for an elderly neighbor, and that experience ignited my heartfelt commitment to senior care. That’s why I pursued a career as a licensed nurse, which allow me to provide compassionate and skilled care to those in need.

Additionally, I understood the significance of acquiring comprehensive knowledge and management skills to excel in the healthcare industry. To this end, I obtained a bachelor’s degree in management. This degree compliments my nursing qualifications but also equips me with the necessary expertise to effectively lead and contribute to the improvement of healthcare practices.

Above all, I am driven by my purpose of making a positive impact on the lives of those I serve. Providing compassionate care and enhancing the well-being of seniors fills me with a deep sense of fulfillment. It is my genuine commitment to improving their lives that motivates me each day.

I grew up in Marietta, Georgia and took part in band, orchestra, and drama throughout my school years. I was part of the National Honors Society of high school scholars. I have a daughter named Emmalee, two dogs, Cuddles and Buddy, and a cat named Shadow. In my free time, you’ll find me nestled in a cozy cabin in North Georgia, immersed in captivating reads and basking in beautiful moments with my precious daughter.
