“I started working at Horton Plaza in 2005, and the main reason why I love working here is because of the Residents, the staff, and the owners. The residents and staff have always been so welcoming, and we have a lot of fun. The owners and management genuinely care about the wishes and wants of the residents as well as the staff.

I love the fact that we are locally owned and we support and get involved in our community. I love making our resident lives a little easier and enjoyable so that they can really live a carefree retirement lifestyle.”

“I was given the exciting opportunity to become the Assistant Manager of Horton Plaza in April of 2021. I started my journey at one of our sister properties in 2016 as their Dining Room Manager, in 2017 I became their Office Manager until I went to Horton Plaza.

The Horton team and residents have been so welcoming and supportive that it made for an easy, natural transition. It is such a rewarding experience to be part of a team that shares a passion for making the day to day lives of our residents engaging, positive and fun. I feel blessed to work for a company with such wonderful local owners and management, who all have a people first approach.”

THERESA TAYLOR, HOUSEKEEPING SUPERVISOR

“I started my Horton Plaza journey in 1999 as a part time housekeeper and server. Over the years it has been such an adventure to work in every department in the building, in October of 2017 I became the Housekeeping Supervisor. Over the years it has continued to be such a rewarding experience to work with the residents who live here. Some of my best memories are getting to know the residents like family and sharing great stories along the way. Throughout my many years here the residents and staff have naturally changed, but the family atmosphere has always been here. I am so blessed to have made so many wonderful memories being a part of this family, and there will be so many more to come.”
