Meet Your Team
Jeremy started his leadership career in the financial industry where he experienced great success working his way up to a top executive. Fortunately, after 10 years he was able to walk away after becoming fully vested with the company for life at an early age which allowed him to explore other opportunities. Jeremy has vowed to spend the rest of his working career being involved in an organization that is about helping others which led him to the mission of the American Cancer Society until the role he was serving in was eliminated. This path led Jeremy to join the Hickory Glen team and senior healthcare in January of 2020. He believes the best part of his role is mentoring and developing staff and meeting and learning about each and every resident who joins the Hickory Glen family. Their stories and life experiences are nothing short of inspiring.
