Genila has been with Sierra Regency since 2006 and still finds it to be such a blessing to come to work every single day. You will find Genila spending the day working closely with her three departments to reassure that the residents at Sierra Regency feel safe, secure and most importantly at home. It is so very important to her that all the residents know and feel that this is not only home but a place that they can depend on her and her team. Whether it’s a ride to the grocery store, a last minute doctor’s appointment, needing a carpet shampoo or even having a cup of coffee and a warm chat with the evening concierge at 11 pm in the lobby when they can’t sleep means the world to her. It is her pleasure to be apart of all the resident's lives at Sierra Regency. She takes extreme pride in her job and loves what she does every single day.
