Alexandra graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Physiology from Michigan State University in 2013. She discovered her passion for serving the senior population while pursuing her second bachelor’s degree in Health Care Administration at Northwood University and furthered her education at Madonna University with a concentration in geriatrics. Her love of working with seniors and health care studies made working in senior housing a natural fit for Alexandra. In 2016 she became a Licensed Nursing Home Administrator in the state of Michigan. Her belief is that our seniors have worked hard all their lives and deserve the opportunity to sit back and enjoy their retirement in a caring environment. She has worked in many different roles at Pomeroy Living since 2014 and became a member of the Beacon Square Orion family in 2018. Alexandra lives in Holly Michigan surrounded by her family and friends.
Justin has been in Sales and Marketing in Real Estate since 2010. Justin was introduced to senior living by his mom who has worked in the industry since he was a child. At that time, he would visit her at work and he had the chance to meet seniors and hear their stories first hand. Justin’s mom exposed him to an environment where he was able to see the positive impact that a community can have on a senior’s life. It is her inspiration and those experiences that guided his heart into this career path.
Joining Beacon Square Orion in July of 2017, Justin shares his drive and enthusiasm with everyone who comes through the doors of Beacon Square. He has a huge passion for seniors and a commitment to providing them with the best possible quality of life.
During Justin’s free time he likes to spend it with family and friends, or on the golf course. Justin is honored to be apart of the Beacon Square family and could see from the start Beacon Square is a different way to care.
