They also help make our residents feel loved and happy. Nothing pleases her more than to see a resident leave their apartment with a smiling face… “That’s a job well done in my book.”  When she is not at the Villa, Christina spends time with her husband and three children doing things they love such as: Hiking, biking, traveling and living life to the fullest.  

Shari-edit-(1).jpgShari Gibson
Executive Receptionist

We like to call Shari our, “Director of First Impressions.” She always knows what’s going on at the Villa.  Who’s coming in, who’s going out. Like a mother hen, she welcomes our guests, greets family members and attends to the needs of our residents with the utmost care and compassion. But don’t let the Brooklyn accent fool you – she’s a real softie. When she’s not taking care of  “everyone,” Shari likes to spend time with her husband, going to movies, dinner and quiet time.
