Barbara joined our team at The Blake at Pensacola as our Executive Director. Barbara is an administrator, nurse, and a Certified Dementia Practitioner. With over 33 years of experience in nursing, she has found her passion in taking care of others. She loves spending time with the residents, listening to their stories, and seeing the smiles on their faces light up when you see them. Barbara believes that the most important part of her job is to ensure that each day is a special day for all our residents. Barbara says, “God has blessed me in my journey. My mother had Alzheimer’s Disease, which makes my love for memory care very special and personal to me. I can relate to our families that have to make many hard decisions about moving their loved ones into a senior living community.” In her free time, when she is not taking care of our residents, Barbara enjoys shopping and water sports.
