Hi, I’m John, the Executive Director at Grace House. I’m also the newest member of the team. We have a great, experienced team working here at Grace House and am proud to join such a dedicated team and help make our Resident’s lives better.
I served in the Army for over eight years as a squad leader and recruiter so my focus has been leading and training others. Since my discharge from the Army, I've spent a number of years in different healthcare and senior housing settings in different roles ranging from independent living communities to skilled nursing facilities.
I have lived and worked in Texas for most of my adult life and have lived in the Hill Country since being stationed here in the Army.
I’m looking forward to meeting you and showing you why Grace House is where Family Always Welcomes You Home!x
Hi, I’m Sheila, and I’m the Assistant Director here at Grace House. I’ve done pretty much everything since I started working here over 15 years ago. I’ve worked as a caregiver, passed medications, cooked, cleaned and even do a little maintenance work from time to time. You name it and I’ve probably done it. Grace House is my home away from home.
I grew up in Waco and worked for my family in our neighborhood store. That’s where I learned how important it is to take care of our customers.
I moved to Austin and raised my family here. We are an outdoors family. When I’m not working here at Grace House you will find me with my husband and sons hunting or fishing.
I’ve learned so much from my Residents in my years at Grace House and am looking forward to many more.
Thank you for considering Grace House. I look forward to meeting you.x
Head Chef and Dining Services Director
Hi, I’m Teresa, and I am convinced I have the best job at Grace House. I’m the Head Chef and Dining Services Director. Me and my team get to make world class meals from scratch for our Residents and their families every day. I’ve been working at Grace House for over 14 years and my other two full time chefs have been here for just about as long.
I grew up in Abilene but have called Austin home for over 25 years. I owe my love of cooking to my mother. She was the best cook I have ever seen and taught me everything I know.
I’ve worked in the food and beverage business most of my adult life and I can’t imagine doing anything else. When I’m not surprising our Residents and families with what me and my team can do in our kitchen, I relax with a good book, work on projects around my house and spend time with family.
Come see me at Grace House and have dinner on me.x
