Christy Hogan

Director of Nursing

Christy is a native of Brazil and serves as the director of nursing for our campus of care. When asked about why she decided to work in senior living, Christy said, "I love caring for the residents and putting a smile on their faces. I know I play a role in supporting our seniors to live as independently as possible."

With a degree in nursing from Ivy Community College, Christy has worked as a critical care cardiac nurse and in a laboratory setting. She has served as an assisted director of nursing at a continuing care retirement community, which included assisted living, and as the director of nursing at a skilled nursing center. In addition to her work in both the hospital, skilled nursing, and assisted living setting, Christy has worked with home health and hospice. Her experience runs the range of care which benefits our residents.

"I choose to work in senior living because I enjoy the environment and feel like residents become a part of our family. Our campus is a great company to work for because of the many friendly, helpful team members," commented Christy.

As area seniors begin to make the transition from home to assisted living and skilled nursing, Christy looks forward to exceeding their expectations in a way that validates their decision to move. "My goal is to make each person feel comfortable with the care we provide. I know we have the skill, experience, and commitment to making this a wonderful place to live."
