Rahimah Bernard

Sales and Marketing Director

Rahimah joined The Legacy at Sweetwater Creek with a life-long love for the senior care industry. She began her journey over 14 years ago as a Sales and Leasing Professional in Oceanside, California for a well-respected multi-family community just outside of Camp Pendleton. From there, Rahimah quickly grew into learning more about the marketing, sales, and operational aspects of property management. Having the opportunity two years later to make a difference as a Resident Manager, she accepted a position with a prominent independent senior living community integrated with a regional health system, UPMC, in Pittsburgh, PA and relocated from the west coast. It was there that Rahimah discovered her passion for the senior population and jumpstarted her career.

Rahimah is a passionate senior living sales professional dedicated to creating enriching, inspiring, and rewarding environments for residents. She loves listening to their stories, welcomes their wisdom and is grateful to be a part of their lives. She believes that quality of life is not only about the individual’s experience, but for the families as well, who are learning how to navigate the decision-making process of choosing an assisted living and memory care community.

As a Sales and Marketing Director, Rahimah is especially grateful for the senior living environment that allows her to build relationships with families and travel with them on their journey as a trusted advisor. She honors her commitments by being reliable and holding herself accountable. Rahimah understands that great teamwork is the secret to achieving great things.

When Rahimah is not serving seniors, she enjoys spending time with her husband, Craig and family in Winston, Georgia. She is a grandmother of 10 and finds joy, peace, and happiness when she video chats or speaks with them. Her best days are spent decorating her home, browsing thru antique shops and vintage thrift stores, shopping at indoor and outdoor flea markets, listening to live music, weekend road trip, exploring small towns, sightseeing, reading, and collecting decorative glass and crystal.

Rahimah is looking forward to the journey that lies ahead at Legacy Ridge. New friends, new families, new memories, and helping residents to live the best chapter of their lives at Sweetwater Creek.
