Lea graduated from Grand Valley State University with a Bachelor of Science in Recreational Therapy. She continued her education by becoming a Certified Dementia Practitioner. Lea has worked in senior living for just over 3 years and enjoys fulfilling the lives of our seniors! Her passion for the industry came through her own personal experiences of dealing with dementia in her own family. She started at Pomeroy Rochester Assisted in April of 2021 as our Activities Director and was recently promoted to our Director of Sales & Marketing in May of 2022! When she’s not at work, you can find Lea spending time with her boyfriend, family, friends, and new puppy, Rocky! In her free time, she likes to do crafts, workout & travel to Northern Michigan to spend her summers in Charlevoix. Growing up in Rochester, it is only fitting that she is part of our Rochester family now!
