Stephanie Dodson


In 2010 I moved from CA where I had been an Office Manager for over 20 years. I started working at CW in 2015 as Front Desk Receptionist.  After some months I was asked to work in Activities and later in Marketing and now as Director. I have enjoyed having the opportunity to work with wonderful residents and a great staff! I enjoy having family time with children and grandchildren.

Jill Hayes


Jill’s experience working at Chaparral Winds front desk led her to the senior living career she loves. She has been working at Senior Living Services since January of 2014, where she was promoted to the Activities Director and to plan and implement which she very much enjoys. Spending time with the residents is the best part of her time at work. She now works as a Marketing Consultant. It is a joy for her to share the community and to help people as they decide on a new place to call home. Originally from Pennsylvania, Jill moved in 1985 to Arizona with her husband of 36 years. She has six children and two grandchildren. She has many hobbies including enjoying the outdoors, reading, and spending time with family. She also likes to help our residents find their purpose and be the best version of themselves.
