Background: ...

   Wendy Simons was literally born and reared in the “old folks home”. Her family opened the first senior care facility in Nevada in 1948. A second generation assisted living provider, she served as an active administrator/owner for over 35 years. As a result of her passion for seniors, preserving their dignity and independence through their last chapter of life, she designed and built a prototype assisted living facility in 1992 and operated it until 2007. She has been deemed the "guru of assisted living” by many of her colleagues.

...Wendy furthered her knowledge base by joining the Nevada State Health Division in 2010, serving as Chief of the state regulatory agency for all medical and other related facilities under the NRS 449 Statutes, for 2 years.  Through working with multiple state agencies and the Federal CMS Survey and Certification Region IX authority, she expanded the effort for quality improvement in facilities by building provider relations groups, advisory councils and multiagency collaborative efforts.
