Our Team

Lauren Ross, Executive Director | Legacy Ridge at Marietta

Lauren Ross

Executive Director

Lauren is excited to be a part of the Atlas Senior Living family and brings over 10 years of leadership experience to the Legacy Ridge Marietta community. 

Although she’s not a Georgia native, growing up in Alpharetta and attending Valdosta State University, Lauren calls Georgia home. She and her husband live in Smyrna, GA with their cat, monkey. In her down time, Lauren enjoys cooking, gardening, and antiquing.

She spends the summers with her family in Arkansas and the warm relationship with her Great Grandmother Jubie and Great Great Aunt Opal (yes, two greats!) sparked the passion for seniors in our local communities. They had a wealth of knowledge and insight that needed to be experienced and shared, so the opportunity to have that experience as a job was the best decision ever made.

Lauren believes in fostering a welcoming community setting that is understanding and dependable. Her door is always open and she looks forward to you stopping by to say Hi!
