Our Team

Madison at the Range | Deborah, Executive Director

Deborah Elms

Executive Director

Deb has been in the medical field for over 30 years and just over 20 years ago fell in love with the senior population. Her journey changed and she has worked in assisted living and memory care communities. She has worn many hats: Direct Care Nurse, Health and Wellness Director, and Executive Director. She is also a Dementia Practitioner. As part of a team in these communities, you can add bus driver, sales, housekeeper, painter, cook, waitress, maintenance director, etc. to her resume. She is a fierce advocate for the elderly, their rights, their comforts, and their quality of life. She is a comforter and a friend to those she directly serves as well as their families. She is a strong leader who is understanding, fair, and strives to have a team that excels for the benefit of those they serve.

Deb has always loved listening to, learning from, and being with her seniors. They are a wealth of knowledge, wisdom, stories, ideas, laughter, and so much love. She encourages her team to know their folks. They are not just residents at the community, they become family. We are all enriched and our days are more joyful if we spend our days loving, caring, and celebrating our folks every day!

Deb is married to Tom who is a retired Army veteran. She has three children and eight grandchildren. We expect you will get to know Tom, and also Bre, her daughter who lives locally, as they too have a love for our elders. A parrot, two dogs, and two cats are privileged members of the family as well as they love to rescue animals.

Deb is an avid reader with a house full of too many books! She loves to discover out-of-the-way places to visit. She is trying to learn how to play the guitar so perhaps, one day, she will play for us all.

Deb is thrilled to be starting a new journey with us here at Madison at The Range. She looks forward to meeting all of you and your families. Your feedback, input, ideas, needs and wants are of the utmost importance to her. This is your home and her priority is that you are happy within your home and with the people who surround you.
