Our People

Our purpose is to be present, responsive and supportive. We want to be an extension of your family and a community of people who come to work ready to serve.

We are skilled professionals, yes. And we are here to connect with you in the spontaneous moments that make your life (and ours) more meaningful.

Executive Director: Meghan Siegel

Meghan attended USC-Coastal Carolina and completed her Bachelor of Arts in Mathematics from the University of Toledo. She began at West Park Place as the Community Relations Director.

“I never imagined how helping someone make a difficult decision to move into a community could also change my life. This community feels like home. Knowing that we are serving a generation that contributed so much to the world is really special. It is so important to be fully present in my role. My door is always open and I love having visitors in my office, or stopping by a group of card players to say hello. I want to be there to celebrate successes and address concerns, fully immersed in our community. We want our residents and families to have the comfort of knowing their every need will be met.” Meghan lives in Sylvania, OH with her three children, her pride and joy: Avery recently graduated from Kent State University, Peyton just started with Douglas J. Aveda Institute in Ann Arbor, and Finley is a sophomore at Sylvania Northview.

Community Relations Director - Alexis RoobCommunity Relations Director: Alexis Roob

Alexis earned her Associate degree from the University of Northwestern Ohio, her Bachelor's degree in Marketing and Management and her Master of Business Administration from Saginaw Valley State University.

"I love my residents and treat them like my own grandparents. I've learned about them, their families, friends and life stories. One resident, in particular, was extremely apprehensive about trusting people. She had faced a lot of loss in her life, so the idea of getting close to another person scared her. We took our time getting to know each other, and eventually she opened to me and others in the community. I am here to listen, comfort and care for you or your loved ones, especially when it takes a little time to warm up." Alexis and her high school sweetheart have a one-year-old Lab/Golden puppy who keeps them busy. They also love to travel and cheer on Ohio State, the Browns, Cincinnati Reds and Atlanta Braves.

Kaylynn was looking for a career and not just a job when she came to West Park Place.

There are many residents who make my days special, and I'm so happy to be here to do the same for them." Kaylynn is engaged to marry her best friend, Tony, and they have two beautiful children, Sebastian (3) and Maisie (6mos).

"I have been coming to West Park Place to teach Silver Sneakers for more than three years and was instrumental in West Park Place's affiliation with the Toledo YMCA. It was always one of my favorite days when I would come to teach. So when a position for Move-in Coordinator was proposed, I was thrilled and feel blessed for the opportunity. I just love the social aspect of the job, talking, learning and giving to each person." Dawn and her husband, Mike, have been married for 21 years.

"I love to learn and have been working in memory care/healthcare for 20 years. I love what I do, and have hundreds of hours training in dementia. As you probably know, we have a wonderful BBET program. But even before I knew of the program, I would do sensory boxes, use 'About Me's' and use positivity and years of experience to connect with our residents. My heart is huge and I truly care about providing the best of myself to my residents and team." Mandy has been married to her husband, Ed, for five years and is a bonus mom to two wonderful children, Ayden and Zoey. They also have three fur babies, including Norman the dachshund.

This community has a special way of making everyone feel welcome. There are so many activities and programs, a Move-in Coordinator and many people to ensure that residents' needs are met in a timely manner. I am so excited to be in such a beautiful community where I can give residents the care they deserve." Diane has three children, 5 stepchildren and 11 grandchildren.

I do a little background work to match them with other residents with similar history and interests. It’s really been special to watch people get involved and be engaged and happy. I make it a habit of recognizing special days and love to see the joy in our residents’ eyes.” Carol has been married to her husband, Mike, since 1987 and they live just a mile from West Park Place with their dog, Lucy.

“After working in our community for two years, I wish I would have changed careers 30 years ago because I love it so much. One of the first residents I met when I started was Don. I was nervous and he was so kind and reminded me of my husband and the way he would reassure me. To this day, when Don sees me, he breaks out in song with ‘Hello, Debbie, well hello, Debbie!’ I love seeing the residents smile and love to get to know them and their stories. Our residents need to know that we are here for them no matter what and I assure them I will be.” Debbie grew up with the old-fashioned values of honesty and respect and likes to share a lot of time with her mother and brother.
