Hi, I’m Jamie, the Executive Director and Wellness 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 help make our Resident’s lives better.
I am a Registered Nurse by training and have dedicated my life to helping others. I’ve worked with seniors for most of my professional life in a number of settings from skilled nursing to home health, hospice and assisted living.
I have lived and worked in North and West Texas for a number of years, but my husband and I recently relocated to the Hill Country and are enjoying building a new home.
When I’m not helping our Residents at Grace House or working on our new home, I enjoy exploring all that the Hill Country has to offer and spending time with my family.
I’m looking forward to meeting you and showing you why Grace House is where Family Always Welcomes You Home!x
Hi, I’m Laura and I’m the Outreach Director here at Grace House. It’s my job to show as many people as possible how great life can be here at Grace House.
Before joining the team at Grace House, I owned and ran a natural food broker business. When I developed that business, my goal was to help others and promote a healthy lifestyle by introducing natural and organic foods into the marketplace.
I was introduced to senior living when my mother was diagnosed with dementia and learned first hand some of the challenges of dealing with the different providers and systems. I really understand what families are going through when they reach out to me at Grace House and it gives me great joy when I am able to help them.
When I’m not at Grace House, I enjoy spending time with my sons, friends and family and hiking the many trails in Austin and the surrounding Hill Country.
Come visit us at Grace House and meet our amazing Residents and wonderful staff. I’m looking forward to meeting you!x
Resident Care Coordinator
Hi, I’m Sheila, and I’m the Resident Care Coordinator 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
