“The primary purpose of The Springs Living,” says Director of Operations, Jay Leo, “is to make a positive change in the way people think, feel and experience senior living. This requires a community of people all working towards the same goal. The requirements to lead that community are high. Laura’s experience and approach of doing things right for the residents and employees will be a significant contribution towards achieving our purpose and our goals. We are excited to add her, and the creative, caring resources that come with her, to our team.”
Larson’s extensive experience in the field dates back to 1983, and she is currently an approved State Mandated Consultant for the State of Oregon, as well as a State Approved Mentor Trainer in the Oregon Intervention System & Positive Behavior Support.
“I feel so fortunate to work with such a talented group of leaders,” says Larson. “The Springs Living consistently strives toward innovation in senior living, firmly keeping relationships and service at the forefront of every decision. I look forward to contributing to the future of The Springs Living.”
