Our Team

Legacy Ridge at Marietta | Adam Taylor

Adam Taylor

Executive Director

Adam has been in the senior living industry for 10 years starting as a dietary aid and then becoming a certified nursing assistant in a nursing home while pursuing his degree in Gerontology Long-Term Care Administration from the University of Northern Iowa. After college, Adam relocated to Tampa, FL where he worked his way up through the industry as a Move-In Coordinator, Program Director, and then a Marketing and Sales Director. After continuing to embrace all aspects of the industry, Adam relocated to the Atlanta metro area to start his first Executive Director role in this very community where he has been since early 2017. Adam entered the senior living industry in hopes of changing the way people view that chapter in their lives. It should be a welcomed new journey and should be exciting for people. When Adam isn’t working at the community, he enjoys traveling, spending time with his family and friends, exploring new restaurants, hiking in the mountains, and relaxing by the pool or on the beach.

Wellness Director

LaTresh was born and raised in San Diego County, California and recently moved to Atlanta in February 2021. She has been a nurse for the last 15 years and has been in the medical field for a total of 21 years. She began her nursing care at the age of 18 as a CNA, which she enjoyed for six years at a local hospital. Then in 2005, she took on the adventure of nursing school to become an LVN (Licensed Vocational Nurse) or LPN. LaTresh has worked in senior living for the last six years of her career and has found her calling. She loves working with seniors due to the fact that her grandparents passed away at an early age, so her residents have become a sort of grandparents for her.

LaTresh has a 17 year old son who is her world, along with her fur baby, Charlie. In her free time LaTresh loves to travel, read, hike, spend time with her family and care for others. She is a firm believer in Christ and holds that dear to her heart. LaTresh eventually would love to go back to school and complete her RN and become an NP.

Legacy Ridge at Marietta | Whitney Shackelford

Whitney Shackelford

Dining Services Director

Whitney grew up all over the east coast as a kid and into her adulthood. She found her passion for culinary arts at a young age, when she would visit her Italian grandmother in NJ every summer and help cook in her kitchen and pick from the garden she maintained in her backyard. When Whitney graduated from high school, she attended Central Piedmont Community College in Charlotte, NC for further training in their culinary arts program. Once she graduated, she ran kitchens in big name hotels, country clubs, and restaurants.  She then moved to Charleston, SC where she found a new love of low country food, lived there for 9 years and decided she was missing a family of her own. When she had her two children, Liam and Bella, she realized the hours were not so good in restaurants. A friend of hers introduced her to senior living and she quickly realized this was the place for her to be!
