Sherri Long, Sales and Marketing Director | Legacy at Savannah Quarters

Sherri Long

Sales & Marketing Director

My name is Sherri Long and I have been in the senior living industry since 2016. My passion for caring for others started at a young age. I was raised by my selfless and loving Grandmother, while she also cared for my Mother that was ill. She taught me that you should live the Golden Rule and that people will always remember how you make them feel. It is my goal every day to make sure our seniors know that they are cared for, respected and most of all loved! I was born and raised in the Savannah area. I attended Armstrong Atlantic State University following high school where I graduated with a Bachelors Degree in Health Administration. I later went back to school and attended Savannah Technical College, where I graduated with an Associates Degree in Business Management with a concentration in Human Resources. My experience in senior living includes being a part of a team that opened a new community in the area as the Business Office Manager. I later moved into a sales and marketing role and was at that community for 6 years. I most recently was the Director of Admissions and Marketing for a near by skilled nursing and assisted living community. That role allowed me to expand my knowledge and learn so much about the skilled nursing side of senior living! In my free time I like to read, go to the beach, country music concerts, Savannah Ghost Pirates games and spend time with my family and 2 dogs, Ollie and Willow.

Emily Ceccarelli

Business Office Manager

Emily was born and raised in Fairfield County, Connecticut. She graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology from Manhattanville College in 2017. Emily decided to professionally explore her lifelong gravitational pull towards caregiving by obtaining her CNA license in 2016. She worked in Assisted Living and Skilling Nursing settings, but it wasn’t until she landed a job in Memory Care that she discovered her true passion. Her innate understanding of dementia and love of her residents was apparent enough to get her recruited  into their Life Enrichment Department, and Emily hasn’t looked back since. 

Emily believes in the immeasurable healing power of laugher and joy, and is committed to bringing that energy to her residents during this emotional chapter of their lives. 

Emily and her husband, Michael, came to Savannah on a road trip in 2017 and had dreamed of moving here ever since – finally settling into the city in June 2022 with their new baby, Conrad, as well as their dog, cat, and turtle. In her downtime, Emily enjoys painting, cooking, listening to music and spending time in the garden.
