Billy began his healthcare career after 21 years with the United Parcel Service. He then began a new career delivering home medical equipment, where helping others in their time of need became a passion. He turned that passion into motivation to go school at the age of 40. During the six years of school, marriage, raising kids, and work, Billy was promoted to manager and then shortly after, started working with hospice. During this time, his mother-in-law was diagnosed with dementia and currently is in full Alzheimer’s. Taking care of her throughout the past eight years brought Billy to enter the assisted living community to share his passion for the care of this disease. Billy truly feels that he has chosen the right path and strives to be a constant advocate for those who are diagnosed with dementia.
Sales and Marketing Director
With a sales career spanning the last 24 years, I am very excited to join the Madison Heights team! As a pastor, the passion to reach and help others is instilled in me. I want to help others see why our team at Madison Heights is ready to help in any and every way possible. Our staff is experienced, caring and ready to serve your every need. My grandfather was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease well over 30 years ago. Seeing his condition has motivated me to share my experience and show how Madison Heights will be a vital service at this time.
I have been married to my wife Julie for 28 years, and we have a daughter, Ashlyn, who is 24 years old.
