Michelle Moffitt becomes the new executive director at Regency Retirement Village this week.
Moffitt joined the Regency Retirement Village leadership team in September, 2019 after 25 years at Asbury Place in Kingsport. Before joining Regency Retirement Village, she served as director of Asbury at Home, a Senior Home Care Service. Asbury is a multisite nonprofit senior living organization with eight continuing care retirement communities, including residential villas and apartments, assisted living, a health care center with rehabilitation services, and home care services.
Moffitt’s career in senior living includes extensive CCRC (continuum care retirement community) experience.
At Asbury Place, she was instrumental in developing occupancy and improving quality and expense management and producing an award-winning operation as a result.
Moffitt is now responsible for overseeing the Regency Retirement Village in Morristown, including independent living, assisted living and memory care. She joins Regency Retirement Village as it opens the community’s first new child care model inspired by an intergenerational care center that combines senior and child care.
“I welcome the opportunity to be at Regency Retirement Village as it leads the way in a retirement community that provides exceptional care to the senior community in Morristown and surrounding areas,” Moffitt said.
Regency’s mission “to serve our residents and families while engaging in relationships, respecting individuality and valuing the contributions of those who evolve our everyday care aligns with my vision. I’m proud that Regency Retirement Village prides itself on a culture of excellence.”
Moffitt earned a Bachelor of Science degree in healthcare administration from King University. She resides in Surgoinsville with her husband, Bobby, and son, Nolan. Moffitt replaces Trudy Darnell, who is becoming a regional director of operations for Regency.
“I’m going to have some big shoes to fill, but I’m up to the opportunity and feel privileged that Regency has chosen me,” Moffitt said.
