How Five Star is responding to the COVID-19 virus
For us, you are everything. How you feel, how you spend your day, what makes you laugh, what you need, what you love to eat—we embrace all of it, because we are a community. We support one another and make the most of every single day, together.
Jennifer Williams was born and raised in Nebraska, but she has lived in Georgia for the last 15 years. She joined Cameron Hall of Ellijay as the Executive Director in October of 2017. She started off her career as an RN working in a Nursing Home and then Assisted Living. Through the years she changed her focus to electronic medical records and helped doctors and hospitals implement new software. When the opportunity to change back to working with seniors arose – she was very excited.
Jennifer enjoys the interesting stories and life lessons passed on to her from the seniors she works with. Jennifer is an avid reader and now that she drives 2 hours a day for her commute she is listening to Audiobooks too. She also enjoys living on an acreage where she raises ducks, chickens and geese. For the last 12 years she has been breeding Standard Goldendoodles and loves every minute of raising puppies! Stop by her office on Thursdays and you will meet Ned who comes to visit with our residents – he is a sweetheart!
As a native of Gilmer County, Tammy wanted to give back to the community which invested in her. She became an LPN and has worked extensively with seniors during her career. Working with the highly dedicated team at Cameron Hall gives her the opportunity to give back. She feels it is such a privilege taking care of the wonderful residents! When she’s not at work, she enjoys spending time with her family, teaching Sunday school, and traveling.
Macy is the Lifestyle360 Director at Cameron Hall, working in the community since 2017. In her time away from work, she is attending Kennesaw State University to receive her Bachelor’s Degree in Organizational Communications. During her leisure, Macy spends time with her family or her dog, Oakley!
Jessi, a native of Ellijay/Gilmer County and graduate of Kennesaw State University, is the Community Relations Director for Cameron Hall. An Argentum Certified Sales Counselor, she has been with Five Star Senior Living for over 6 years, working both at Cameron Hall and its sister property, Gracemont. Her passion is helping families during their times of need. Jessi aims to be the go-to expert for senior information in North Georgia, hosting an aging adult TV segment each week. As a result of her Gerontology capstone project, she serves as an Educator for the Alzheimer’s Association to public safety and law enforcement departments. This partnership led to Jessi recently completing the At-Risk Adult Crime Tactics Specialist certification to be an additional resource for law enforcement in the area. She also represents Cameron Hall with the Gilmer County Chamber of Commerce Ambassador group.
When she’s not volunteering or working, Jessi enjoys seeking fun new adventures with her husband, especially off-roading in their Jeep with their two labs. If you need aging adult resources, call her as your starting point.
Dolores loves Cameron Hall and her position as Business Office Manager. Cameron Hall is not the building even though the building is awesome; it’s the people that she works with, all of the Residents that call it home, and the Volunteers that help. Together, everyone makes such an awesome TEAM. When Dolores is not in her favorite seat at her desk, she plays. She’s a transplanted southern Georgia girl, from Savannah and she left the ocean to come to the majestic mountains. Dolores does love the views up here. Her family loves the life they have made here. Her kids can play outside, they have plenty of things to “go and check out” and the pace is not as fast as it was in Savannah. She appreciates the opportunity to be the BOM. Her happiness and gratitude are infectious and her smile brightens everyone’s day.
Britney is a Gilmer County Native who grew up out Clear Creek. She started working at Cameron Hall in December 2017 and knew right away that she would love working here. The Residents are wonderful and the staff make a great team. Britney accepted the Maintenance Director position at the end of May 2019 after training for 10 months in the department part time. She enjoy the different tasks and challenges that arise every day. Even more, she enjoy helping the residents and listening to their stories.
Britney has a wonderful husband and 2 young boys. She loves to enjoy the beautiful outdoors that God created. Whether it’s camping, swimming, hiking, gardening, or fishing… but her favorite hobby is hunting. There’s nothing like getting up on a crisp morning before daylight, getting in the woods before the sun comes up, just so you can get the chance to hear a turkey gobble on the roost or a deer crunching the dry leaves as it walks by. No matter where the road leads, she has always thought Ellijay is the best place to be.
