Connie Bishop, our Director of Dining Services, joined The Claiborne team in May of 2019. Connie is a native of House, Mississippi.

While working toward a Bachelor’s degree in Education from Mississippi State University, Connie was employed by a hometown deli and catering service.   After working in the foodservice industry to fund her education, Connie decided to pursue it as a career, owning and operating her own restaurant, The Village Kitchen, in Meridian Mississippi for 25 years.  Connie has also served as an interim instructor and advisor to the Hotel Restaurant Technology Program at Meridian Community College and, most recently as the Director of Dining Services, Methodist Senior Services/Aldersgate with Morrison Community Living in Meridian, Mississippi.

During her free time Connie enjoys spending time with her son Danny, his wife Dae, and her precious grandchildren – James, age 7 and Keifer-Lee, age 14 months.  Connie is active in community theatre, having served on the board of the Meridian Little Theatre and also has a passion for volunteer work with senior adults, having served on the Board of the Lauderdale County Council on Aging. She is also an active member of the Veteran’s Appreciation Committee which supports the National Run For The Wall annually as well as other veteran needs.

The Blake is lucky to have her. She works from her heart and is dedicated to serving residents and families.
