Hope Anastasio – Life Enrichment Director
My name is Hope Anastasio and I am originally from Kansas. Before I became a Life Enrichment Director I was a Lead Pre-School/Pre-Kindergarten Teacher for 5 years! I am the youngest sibling out of 7! If I could encourage anyone to do anything in life it would be to go outside early in the mornings when the sun is just rising or go outside in the evening when the sun is setting and really take it in. I feel as if people often forget how Beautiful this World really truly is because they are so focused on other things around them, so it never hurts to take that quick moment to yourself and think of the things you are thankful for but also get a reminder that there is something beautiful in everyday, you just have to find it.
Melody Martie – Dietary Manager
Melody has been with us since May 2013. She oversees the dining services and ensures the residents have a variety of delicious home-cooked meals. Melody has been working in dietary since she was in high school. “I have enjoyed cooking my entire life, and I love making the residents happy with the food I cook!” She is a graduate of Pinckneyville High School, and received her bachelor’s in food & nutrition from Southern Illinois University in Carbondale.
