Mark MeloTherapy Coordinator
Mark has been working in the Occupational Therapy field since 2016. He has worked primarily in skilled nursing facilities as well as home care. Mark was inspired to work within this field because he wants to see individuals succeed and grow within themselves as well as physically so that they may return either to the community or to facilitate increased independence if they are residents of the facility. He is a firm believer and frequently states to his patients “In order to succeed, you must want it and work for it, and if you need help I will always be here to be your support. Just lean on me and we’ll help you to the best of our abilities”. Other than being a father of two amazing children, he enjoys the beach, hiking, running, skiing, cycling, and plays on a variety of sports leagues.
Simone SpencerDirector of Nurses
Simone has worked in the nursing field since 2007. She has worked in a variety of settings, including subacute and acute rehabilitation, home healthcare, community healthcare, and geriatric psychology. Her job path changed dramatically in 2007 when she began working as a Certified Nursing Assistant. Her mother is a nurse, and her grandma was a nursing assistant. Furthermore, her great-grandmother was well-versed in excellent cures for curing illness and making others feel better. It felt as if she was called to help others in the world of healthcare. After a patient suggested that she should consider becoming a nurse, she chose to become a Licensed Practical Nurse. This event inspired her to advance her career and become a Registered Nurse. Her ultimate career aim is to be a passionate advocate for her patients, staff, and the nursing profession, with an influence that extends beyond the walls of the nursing home. This goal is more than just a job or a profession. Her ultimate goal is to accomplish this goal, which is a humanitarian act in keeping with her nursing vocation.
