As a passionate sales and marketing professional in the long-term care industry, Kendra Tuma is no stranger to having a heart-to-heart conversations with families in search of finding the right place for their aging loved one to call home.“A community should be a fun environment. Senior living communities should be considered a new beginning and a continuation of that fun.”
Since 1991, Kendra has taken prominent leadership roles involved with the start-up process of at least eighteen senior living communities and carefully managing their steady growth. From implementing new and innovative senior care programs to making the needs of family members her number one priority, her in-depth knowledge shows no boundaries.
“I am most proud of the fact that every family member and resident will receive responsive and personalized attention,” Tuma said, when asked about one attribute she would like to bring to the Oaks at Pooler. Adding, “My number one goal is to make sure that the residents goals are met as well as staff.”
Ms. Tuma joined the Oaks Senior Living family on February 1st as Community Relations Director for the much-anticipated Pooler location, expected to open October 2016. While the new community is being built, Tuma will be conducting operations at a temporary on-site information office beginning March 1st to speak with families. Family members and those interested in learning more can visit the site located at 125 Southern Junction Blvd., Pooler, G.A., 31322 or call (770) 888-4683.
“Those of us in the industry and those of us as professionals have an obligation to share that knowledge [with families and loved ones], Tuma said, speaking to her track record of senior living marketing and sales. “You have to sell with your heart.”
Kendra noticed her interest in senior living from a distance, when she set up a mentor program for her son’s first grade class as an activities director. The program was designed to encourage kids to read more and Kendra coordinated trips to senior living homes and be read by residents. When she is not busy caring for loved ones, Kendra enjoys reading, watching PBS, traveling and water sports.
