Seniors choose Pegasus Senior Living to join a community that feels like home. This feeling comes from the dedication of local associates across the entire country. We cannot thank them enough.
Our services range from independent living, assisted living and memory care. Residents enjoy three seasonal meals per day, complete fitness goals, attend endless activities and find plenty of time to bask in the many amenities our communities provide.
All of this is possible thanks to a team of devoted associates. From culinary to concierge, housekeeping to health and wellness, our partnership with these local heroes ensures our residents live their best lives.

“This was never my career path,” says Tha Chay-Phann, Business Office Director at The Oaks at Inglewood. “I always imagined myself working at a hospital helping others. I started here short-term and fell in love with the residents and community. Almost 15 years later, here I am still doing what I love: Working with seniors.”
The Oaks at Inglewood’s Life Enrichment Director, Nita Iv, joins her with over 15 years of service as well.
She says, “Getting up for work is easy knowing I can make a positive impact in the community. It gives me the opportunity to meet a wide variety of seniors and make a tremendous difference in their quality of life.”
At Historic Roswell Place in Georgia, seven associates combined have over 90 years of Pegasus excellence:

Is there an opportunity for growth at Pegasus Senior Living?
In Nevada, communities like The Chateau at Gardnerville are full of success stories of people who promote our local and passionate care ethos.
Katie Nichols started there 11 years ago. Beginning in health and wellness, she is now the Executive Director.
Jessica Maidlow started as a care associate 13 years ago. After taking time off and going to school for marketing, she returned to become the Sales Director:
“This community gives me a great purpose in life. I get to be around such amazing people who have built this world as we know it. I am so humbled by them every day, and they teach me how special life really is.”
Also with 13 years of experience at the community, Jessica Imelli arrived as a care associate and is now the Assistant Executive Director.
“I enjoy connecting with our residents and families, and making a difference in their lives,” she explains.
We congratulate our partners on the culinary team as well. Edith has been a favorite in the dining room for 18 years, and residents stay full thanks to Debbie’s decade of cooking.
Why do associates love their careers at Pegasus Senior Living?
“It’s a fun community,” says cook of 22 years, Hector Vargas. “I enjoy the smiles on their faces when I prepare a delicious meal. It’s always all about the bond we have I cherish.”
The community to which Vargas refers is Sun City West Assisted Living in Arizona. Their community has some of the longest-tenured Pegasus associates who have incredible things to say:
“It’s not just a job. It’s like a second home, and I come to see my family.” – Letty Romero, Dining Service Partner, 18 years
“It’s always amazing to be the first person to greet them in the morning. Being a part of their lives is a blessing.” – Carmen, Housekeeper, 17 years
“I am truly honored to have the opportunity to be able to enrich their lives. I have met some of the most incredible people and listened to some of the greatest life stories they’ve had to share. It is an amazing experience that I’ll forever cherish.” – Maria Romero, Life Enrichment Director, 15 years
“I work with seniors because I feel like I am truly doing something that is important, and it is intensely rewarding. My goal is to bring a smile to their faces every day. I do this by having them tell me stories of their youth or important events in their lives. Reminiscing with them helps them feel better, especially for those who do not have family, or whose family are not able to visit very often.” – Gayle Lemenager, Assistant Executive Director, 15 years
“I enjoy hearing the stories our residents have to share about their lives. They all have their own unique story.” – Sherri Williams, Sales and Marketing Director, 24 years
