Tina Gibson

Tina brought her extensive Hotel and Resort management skills to the Independent Senior Living market in 2020.  With many years managing full-service hotels and banquet centers for Wyndham and Hilton in both Metro Detroit and Naples Florida, Tina obtained a Real Estate license in 2007 and began managing Condominium and Homeowner Associations.  She particularly enjoyed managing the Senior condominiums and decided to combine her hospitality background and her property management certifications to work with Seniors full time.  Tina is very happy to be working with Pomeroy.  In her spare time, Tina is a world traveler who loves to explore new places and always uses all her vacation time.

Mackenzie Peterson

Sales and Marketing Director

Beginning as a receptionist with the Pomeroy company, Mackenzie then began to learn and love the passion she had for creating an environment for our seniors to live in. Home is a feeling and Mackenzie is passionate about dedicating her time to impact the lives of many of our loved ones.

Mackenzie joined Pomeroy Living in September of 2018 but has come on as the Sales and Marketing director of Rochester Independent in September of 2020.

Chef Jason Booker

Chef Jason has come to Pomeroy Living Rochester with an extensive background. His career began early in life as a line cook for Perkins Family Restaurant when he was 18 where he developed his love of cooking. Following his time there he attended Ohio State University to study Radiology Technology before he realized that the medical field wasn’t for him. Jason resorted back to his first love of Culinary Arts and attended The Art Institute in Cincinnati to attain his culinary degree. He immediately put these degrees to use with-holding chef positions in hospitals, hotels, casinos, grocery stores, and restaurants. He was one of the many chefs that helped open Aria Casino in Las Vegas. He also worked in the kitchens at Wynn Las Vegas Casino. Jason spearheaded the opening of several Kroger Marketplaces in Fort Wayne, Indiana as a Regional Chef and helped run the restaurant division of Nordstrom Restaurants in Michigan. After many years of the hustle and bustle in the restaurant industry, he was looking for something more relaxing and came to Pomeroy Living to have a work-life balance. This is what brought him to Pomeroy Living Rochester. Chef Jason loves putting smiles on the resident’s faces with his cooking as it is something that brings a lot of enjoyment to him even after doing this for over 30 Years.

Joanne LaLone

Life Enrichment Director

Joanne came to Pomeroy Rochester Independent in November of 2019 after working 16 years in Healthcare. As a life enrichment director, the reward of making a difference in the residents life is something Joanne looks forward to. Planning activities and events for the residents brings her joy especially when the residents are excited to attend. Above all, Joanne enjoys getting to know the residents and spending time with them as she has lost both of her parents. Personally, she understands how maintaining a social lifestyle during isolation can impact the wellbeing of our seniors as her dad moved to assisted living after it became too hard for him to be home alone. As her dad got older, maintaining his home and lifestyle became more challenging but once he started getting to know fellow residents and the enjoying the warm company of his neighbors, he was a lot happier.

Becky Mathews

Housekeeping Supervisor

Before finding a passion in housekeeping, Becky had started out her career as a caregiver for the senior population over 18 years ago. She has a passion for making our residents  happy in their home environment and she goes over and beyond to exceed her goal. Becky has been with Pomeroy Rochester since 2016 and is the housekeeping supervisor. In this role, she has gained the experience and knowledge after being a manager in the housekeeping industry for almost 18 years. Becky is honored to be apart of the Pomeroy family and plans to retire with the company when the time comes.

On her down time, Becky enjoys many extracurricular activities such as shopping, exercising, and camping. She is also a big decorator and loves animals. If she had to pick one , her favorite animal would be dogs.

Michael Mattei

Maintenance Technician

Mike had originally started his career as a line cook in July of 2015. He has been with the Pomeroy company for 5 ½ years where he was then transferred into the maintenance department about 1 ½ years ago.
