Stephanie Dodson

EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR OF INDEPENDENT LIVING

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.

Nicole Leyva

MARKETING CONSULTANT OF ASSISTED LIVING & MEMORY CARE

My name is Nicole and I am the Marketing Consultant here at Chaparral Winds. I have been working for assisted living homes for the past 9 years, and it has become my passion to help seniors and their loved ones find a home that is right for them. Since starting my career as a server, I fell in love with my residents who became family which motivated me to work hard, learn, and grow within this community. I hope you will allow me the opportunity to join your journey and for you to join our Chaparral Winds family!
