Lisa Laub


Lisa, originally from New York City, has worked in the Senior Living Industry in Florida over 25 years, where she held managerial marketing, sales and business development roles at HCR/Manor Care, Marriott Senior Living Services, The Sage Company and St. Mark Village Continuing Care Retirement Community. In addition, Lisa expanded her horizons when she took on the role of Regional and Divisional Marketing Manager at The Little Clinic, a national operator of Nurse Practitioner-based medical practices located inside Publix and Kroger supermarkets. In this role, she was responsible for grass roots marketing, business development, customer service initiatives and training for Nurse Practitioners.

Lisa takes great pride in being able to walk families through the process of change by helping them discover a second retirement. She can’t really call this a job because it is her passion, and she believes she is exactly where she is supposed to be. After all these years its exciting for her to be a part of a community that shares the philosophy she has dreamed of for senior living communities. She is thankful to be given the opportunity to be a part of the next generation of retirement living.
