Chief Operating Officer
Dustin has dedicated his career to building organizational excellence from the inside-out. With a Bachelor of Science in Organizational Leadership from Miami University, he previously held HR leadership roles in the hotel industry and at Boeing. He believes in treating employees as family (in fact, we even call them “Family Members”) with the idea that in turn, they will care for our residents like their own family.
Rose is a Registered Nurse (RN) with over 35 years in medical, pulmonary and critical cardiac care experience with adult populations. She is very enthusiastic in extending her expertise and service to our elderly residents and their families, and loves being a part of this community.
Having dedicated her life's work to serving the frail and elderly, Karla holds a degree as a Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP). Her philosophy of care includes formulating a cohesive partnership with each resident to ensure the care they receive meets their personal goals. Compassion, encouragement, patience & respect are the principles that guide Karla's practice. When not caring for her patients, Karla loves to sing karaoke, try new ethnic cuisines and explore the beautiful Pacific Northwest.
Andy is an experienced Pharmacist whose mission is to enhance the Adult Family Home experience by providing support and ideas. Adept at building trusting relationships with residents and their family members, he enjoys working with seniors because of the ability to enhance their quality of life. When not busy with his pharmacy practice, Andy enjoys boating and spending time with family and friends.
Kyle wants our properties to shine so our entire Ashford Family will love where they live & work. Originally from SoCal, Kyle spent his childhood in Seattle before heading off to study biology in college. Before coming home to Ashford Senior Living, he worked in several fields, including nursing & commercial fishing. When not beautifying our homes, Kyle enjoys fixing things--making his current role a pretty great fit. He also likes to read & spend time outdoors, sometimes both at the same time!
Miriam brings a well-rounded background to our Family, having worked in multiple customer service settings including the hotel industry. She's lived in CO, ID, OR & Mexico...and of course here in WA! Along with a Bachelor Degree in Business Administration, these experiences allow her to work well with our diverse group of Family Members & residents. Miriam is motivated by the idea of making a positive contribution to the lives of those around her each day.
Senior Pet Therapist
Parker has been visiting our homes since he was a young pup. He works very hard to make everyone's tail wag around the household. Nowadays, he requires a little more stretching in the morning to get up and moving, but it's made him an even more empathetic Therapist for our residents!
Junior Pet Therapist
Under the wise tutelage of her big brother Parker, red-headed little Zoey brings a smile to our residents' faces during her visits. She provides unconditional love, and will give extra kisses if you sneak her a treat!
