Sharon Herpstreith - Administrator

Sharon Reynolds
RN, Administrator, The Villas Senior Care Community's Skilled Nursing & Villas Total Rehab

As the administrator of The Villa Senior Care Community it is my responsibility to welcome both residents and employees to our facility. I have 24 years of long-term care experience working in a skilled facility. That is a lot of years to understand what the families and employees want in a leader.

I feel it is my responsibility to “lead by example”. I come from a small farming community in which you go out of your way to help your neighbor and I bring those beliefs to The Villas. One of my favorite things about work is decorating the facility for the holidays.




russell revRussell Bogdanovich, Director, The Villas Senior Care Community's Assisted Lifestyle Community

I began working in the long-term care field as a direct service personnel in 1998 working with developmentally delayed adults. I ended my tenure as an Executive Director and now am thrilled to have a chance to work with the senior population at The Villas Senior Care Community. 

I will always enjoy caring for those who need assistance and especially those who may have experienced challenges along the way. These challenges always remind me of why I do what I do.

I also enjoy the game of soccer and have coached collegiately. Currently, I officiate at the same level in my spare time.

mary eggelston revMary Eccleston, RN, Director of Nursing

I joined the Villa family in March of 2006 as a part time nurse. I came from a background of emergency room care, ICU care and medical surgical experience. I transitioned at the Villas from part time registered nurse to full time nurse working our skilled and rehab units. I was promoted to the Assistant Director of Nursing in March of 2015 then Director of Nursing in January of 2019. I have found my calling in health care working with the elderly population. I hope I make a difference in the lives of my residents and will continue to work hard to do so.

Cathy is a fabulous activity director that truly cares about impacting our resident's lives. She is always looking for new ideas for activities but also remembers that the residents enjoy some of the old activities like bingo that we have been doing for years. Cathy loves the fact that she gets the opportunity to sit with all residents to get their social history and hear all the amazing things that they have done in their lives.  



Shontel Foster Activities Director revShontel Foster, Activity Director, The Villas Senior Care Community's Skilled Nursing & Villas Total Rehab

I found my home as a member of the Villas staff in 2013. I was still in high school, and the Villas was my first place of employment. I started in laundry and ventured on to dietary, reception, and activities. The residents made such an impact on my life that I wanted to do more for them. I went on to obtain my CNA license and was able to provide a level of care I was never able to before. My role as a Certified Activity Director in a skilled nursing facility is to prolong your loved ones involvement in social settings whether it’s in a group function or 1:1. Activities range from high functioning to lower functioning while incorporating use of all the 5 senses.



Albert Pitts - Dietary Manager
rt Pitts, Dietary Manager, The Villas Senior Care Community's Skilled Nursing & Villas Total Rehab

I have been working for The Villas since November 2002. The one thing that impressed me the most was the warmth and home-like feeling I received on my first day. Ten years later, I still get that same feeling. I grew up in the South, where family connections and southern hospitality go hand-in-hand. I like to think that I bring those values to work everyday. As the Dietary Manager my primary role is to ensure that every residents' nutritional needs are met, but I play many roles: I am a waiter during meal service, a guide when someone has lost their way, an ear when someone needs to be heard, but the best and most important role I enjoy is giving the best customer service I can every single day.
