Meriam Hillis

Executive Director

WHAT IS MY ROLE AT JOURNEY SENIOR LIVING?
I am the Executive Director, as well as a Registered Nurse. In my role, I am responsible for the day-to-day operations of the facility. My goal is to maintain and improve the daily experience of everyone at the community and to make sure the residents are safe and receive high-quality compassionate care.

 

WHY IS JOURNEY SENIOR LIVING THE RIGHT FIT FOR ME?
I am the right fit for Journey Senior Living because I love the smaller community where I can still provide resident care while managing my other responsibilities. It is like one big happy family. I admire having strong leaders who care for the facility, staff, residents, and families making us all not just a number.

MY HOBBIES
I enjoy cleaning, shopping, and spending time with my family, but especially those two beautiful grandchildren of mine Jayde and Jaxson.

Tiffany Anderson

Head of Sales

WHAT IS MY ROLE AT JOURNEY SENIOR LIVING?
As Director of Sales & Marketing, I implement creative strategies that bring awareness to the importance and benefits of a community like JSL.  My position provides me with an opportunity to educate and guide inquiring families towards the best solution in care for their loved one. I take great pride in walking these families through the entire move-in process. My goal is to give inquiring families a trusting sense of peace and heart-felt compassion whether they are touring JSL for the first time or  leaving their loved one in our care. 

WHY IS JOURNEY SENIOR LIVING THE RIGHT FIT FOR ME?

Journey Senior Living is a beautiful community with a comfortable atmosphere. I lost my father 15 years ago and often find myself saying  “I wish my father would have been given the opportunity to reside in a community like JSL.”  While the building’s aesthetics are pleasing, the caring staff members are what sets JSL apart from other communities in the area. Being confident in the care provided by JSL is something I proudly promote. 

MY HOBBIES
I enjoy spending time with my husband, 3 kids, and our Cocker Spaniel. I grew up in GA with 6 living generations and I so appreciate the memories of our big, southern, family gatherings. One of the things I enjoyed most about these gatherings was the food. I love trying to recreate those recipes for my family. I doubt anyone comes to my house without having a glass of sweet tea ready for them. I am a huge fan of baseball. My favorite pitcher is my son! I spend a lot of my time attending his games or my daughters cheer competitions.  In my free time, I enjoy traveling to GA and FL.
