Our Leadership Team
I’m originally from Boston, Massachusetts. I have been in the medical field for over 25yrs. I am a licensed LPN and I have over 12yrs of clinical experience. Over the last 5yrs I have made significant advances in medical management.
I decided to become an Executive Director because I felt that senior living deserved to have a person with clinical acuity leading the team. While I work on finishing up my MBA in Organizational Management, I vow to help take Legacy Ridge at Sandy Plains to the next level!
Sales and Marketing Director
Christina is a metro Atlanta native. She lives in Roswell with her fiancé and is a soccer/football bonus mom of two teenage boys and a German Shepherd – all of whom keep her on her toes! Christina has been in senior living for over 20 years and can’t see herself working in any other industry. She is currently writing a book that is a collection of short stories, wisdoms, and “-isms” she has heard from her seniors over the years.
She loves coffee, shopping, and a great pen!
Business Office Manager
Andrea is originally from Memphis, Tennessee, but has lived in Georgia for 28 years via Las Vegas, Nevada. She has over 30 plus years’ experience in the healthcare field, as a Hemodialysis/Acute Technician and Office Managers.
Andrea is new to the senior living environment but has a huge heart for the elderly community since her early childhood, that she became passionate about. Making a positive difference, with love, in the lives of others is how she lives her life, instilled in her by her Mother.
I’m grateful, as the new BOM, to be afforded the opportunity to serve our seniors daily in multiple capacities, as well as their families.
She is a wife, to her wonderful husband Robert and Mother to their only child, daughter Ryan Alise.
Andrea is excited about joining the Legacy Ridge at Sandy Plain family and look forward to the journey that lies ahead.
