Les is originally from Ohio and moved to Florida with his family while in Junior High. After graduating High School he toured the country for a year with a group called Covenant Players (a Christian Drama company). They performed in churches, schools, nursing homes, military bases and prisons as part of their ministry. Les loves to travel as he finds it enriching and educational resulting in an understanding and appreciation of different cultures and scenery. He attended St. Pete College and graduated from the Health Care Administration program. In 1991, he obtained his Nursing Home Administrator’s License and was employed as a Nursing Home Administrator until coming to St. Mark Village in 1998. He was hired as the Human Resources Manager and became the Human Resource Director in 2013. Les considers it a privilege to be at St. Mark Village and is proud to advise and support the team members who so graciously serve our Residents.
