Meghna Davidson, Operations Director
The company offers a platform that can change one’s life no matter what your background might be. If you can bring hard work, commitment, and enthusiasm to the table, the sky is the limit. Additionally, if you want to be surrounded with positive people who want to lift others up, Leisure Care is the company for you.

Pablo Evan, Guest Services Manager at Russellville Park
Leisure Care has opened so many doors for me by encouraging me to seek new opportunities and expanding my knowledge in the field. My parents always told me that helping the community is of the utmost importance, and working here gives me the opportunity to do just that. I can fundraise for a worthy cause such as the One Eighty Foundation. As Chris Grosser once said, “opportunities don’t happen. You create them.”
Jamie Bravato, General Manager at Fairwinds – Spokane
I cannot tell you how much I love the culture of Leisure Care and what it stands for. You will never come across another company that cares about the people as much as they do. Simply put, Leisure Care attracts terrific people. When you walk into a Leisure Care community, it’s a different feeling from other communities. The comment I hear often is, “Everyone here seems so happy. You can really tell the residents and staff love being here.” There is so much truth to this comment. I enjoy the chatter and laughter throughout the lobby, and I love that employees are smiling and having fun while doing their job. It truly sets us apart.
Haley McPherson – Corporate Receptionist – Seattle Home Office
I knew that I wanted to be a long-term employee quickly after starting my internship with Leisure Care. I was welcomed by both the staff and residents as soon as I walked through the door, and was a part of the team in no time. The culture of Leisure Care is something that I have never experienced before, and was not ready to let go. I gladly accepted a full-time position at the home office in downtown Seattle after graduating from Central Washington University with a BS in Public Health with a specialization in population health. If you are looking for an exciting internship that can turn into a fulfilling career in hospitality and senior care, you are at the right place.
