Director of Life Enrichment
Jessica has been with Hope Landing since February 2023. She hired in as a caregiver and fell in love with the residents, as well as the company. She found her calling working in Assisted Living, building meaningful relationships with the residents.
Her background includes working for an audiology office, as a team leader in a factory, as well as a few years in childcare.

In her free time, you can find Jessica spending time with her husband and son, playing games, enjoying the outdoors, or snuggling up with one of her 3 fur babies.
Care Team Coordinator
Amber came into her own when she hired into Hope Landing. With no prior experience in caregiving, she made her way at Hope Landing by truly caring for her residents, having strong dedication to not only them but her teammates as well.
Amber earned quite a few achievements and awards while working at Hope Landing from Teammate of the Quarter to a slightly larger honor when she won the 2020 Caregiver Of The Year for the state of Michigan. All of this excellent work propelled her to her current role as Care Team Coordinator where she oversees our Day Shift Care Team. Amber enjoys staying active at home, she is married to her best friend Ryan and together they have a son Henry. Amber also has 2 fur babies.
