Natasha started in the senior living industry in 2010 as a Community Relations Director with Merrill Gardens Assisted Living in Roswell. During that time, Natasha’s father became ill and she and her family had to transition him into a skilled nursing home and eventually onto hospice. This experience was eye-opening for Natasha as she realized firsthand the enormous need for Advocates, especially when families are going through a crisis situation and needing to make important decisions quickly.
In 2013, Natasha became a Family Advocate. She successfully assisted hundreds of families and guided them through the arduous task of selecting the best senior living option for their loved one. In this role, Natasha found her true passion because she loves meeting with her families and getting to know them on a personal level.
Natasha earned a Bachelors of Arts degree from The University of Central Florida and currently resides in Midtown Atlanta with her partner, Judd, and adorable goldendoodle, Romeo.

Melissa’s personal experience in the senior living industry began in 2005 when she began caring for her Grandparents in Dunwoody. Senior living options in Atlanta at that time were limited, especially for a couple who wanted to remain living together, with one spouse independent and the other struggling with Alzheimer’s disease. Over the course of 6 years, Melissa experienced first hand the nuances, both pit falls and successes, of in-home care, independent living, memory care, assisted living and finally hospice.
In 2013, Melissa was educating 8th graders from all over the country in Washington, DC when a discussion with a friend about their family’s struggle brought to her attention that many families could benefit from what she learned when going through the same process. She returned to Atlanta to become a Family Advocate. She dedicates her work to grandparents Winnie and Bud, because having the honor to care for them has allowed her to help so many others.
Melissa is a native Atlantan and attends Mt. Paran Church. You can find her seeking the sun in the spring and summer and rooting for her Georgia Bulldogs in the fall.

Nancy became involved in the senior living industry through her personal experience in moving her mother from Florida to Georgia in 2015 and ultimately into an Assisted Living community. At that time, Nancy and her family juggled making important financial, logistical, and emotional decisions on their own. Looking back, she realizes the path would have been different if she had a Family Advocate to help guide her through the process and provide resources she did not know about on her own.
Nancy’s prior career was in Human Resources, working with management and employees to facilitate work place decisions and problem resolutions. When she moved in Georgia in 2000, she focused her attention on raising her children and started a successful home-based invitation business.
Nancy earned a Bachelors of Arts degree in Industrial Psychology from The University of Connecticut. She has been married for 20 years to her husband Jeff, and they have two children Simon and Zack, along with their golden retriever, Colby.
Nancy finds fulfillment in working with families as a Family Advocate, especially those dealing with their loved one’s dementia. She can relate to their struggles, since her own mother is struggling with dementia. When not working, Nancy enjoys spending time with family and friends, working out and traveling.
