Executive Director

Pete has served the seniors of Washington County since 2007. His roles in senior living and hospice have provided him with the expertise and connections to provide just the right direction to families in need. Pete came to Somerford of Hagerstown as the Sales Counselor in 2018 and in 2021, he became the Executive Director. He is a member of the Upsilon Phi Delta honor society of healthcare professionals and has a Bachelor of Science degree in Health Services Administration from University of Maryland University College. His service in the Marine Corps included a tour at Camp David and a combat tour in Iraq. He uses these experiences to support the veterans who reside at Somerford and across Washington County.  Pete learned to serve seniors at a young age when he would mow lawns, rake leaves, and shovel snow for the elderly in the small town of Frankfort, Indiana.  He learned that it is always worthwhile to take a few minutes to learn from the experiences of retirees.
