Throughout my 16 year career in Independent Senior Living, I have discovered the greatest passion and compassion for our country’s richest history. It is such a pleasure to be surrounded by individuals who show such a zest for life and who live each moment to the fullest.
It is our desire at Sierra Regency to be inspirational and dedicated to each of our residents and encourage them to live life to the fullest. We pride ourselves on excellent services and our compassionate team members.
I see firsthand how quickly our new residents realize that our community’s environment allows them to feel at ease and gives them the ability to thrive. It is an exciting time when our residents start meeting new friends, building new relationships, discovering new hobbies and attending new social functions that they didn’t realize they would enjoy.
It is so fulfilling to know that every day I have the opportunity to touch someone’s life. There is nothing better than being in an environment where I am surrounded by our amazing residents and dedicated team members. You can feel it in the air from the minute you walk into our community, it feels like home.
I am so thankful for the opportunity to touch those lives that need us the most. We will continue to do our best and create environments that allow our residents to live life to the fullest.

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 a part of all the resident's lives at Sierra Regency. She takes extreme pride in her job and loves what she does every single day.

Noreen started working in January 2018 at Sierra Regency as the Life Enrichment Director. In this position, she plans activities in and out of the community for the residents. She also supports them in their daily group activities such as water aerobics, cards, and board games, putting and exercise. One of Noreen’s favorite things to do is finding and booking entertainment for the residents. With her background in classical music and musical theater, she enjoys bringing new talent to the community. She has also been busy finding local professional and amateur theater productions for the residents to attend. If asked about her job here, she says that all the different jobs she has had in her life led her here to this one. You can often see her walking through the halls planning the next trip or decorating for the next holiday or season.

In April 2019, Kou took on the Maintenance Director position. He is excited to be a part of the Sierra Regency family. He loves the warm energy he gets from the residents and his co-workers. “This place feels like a second home to me,” Kou said.
He’s always strived to add positive energy to his team by teaching and learning something new each day. His goal is to make sure the building stands strong for many years to come. There is no problem he can’t solve; if he ever runs into one, he would come out on top.
Kou is a father of 4 children. His eldest is 6 years old, second is 4 years old, third is 2 years old and the fourth one is an infant. One of Kou’s favorite hobbies is to play the piano. Although he is not an expert at it, the piano was a big part of his life growing up.
