Experienced. Certified. Conscious. Supportive.
Joann Malanga started working in the Senior Living industry as a nurse’s aide at the age of 19 while attending college. She experienced what it felt like to be at the caring end of the spectrum as she came face to face with the seniors. She found herself frustrated and appalled by the care and at times neglect that the residents were getting and also frustrated with herself that she had so much sensitivity to energy. She would feel good one minute and down the next. She knew that she could do better and make a difference in the Assisted Living Communities and as a leader. It was a pivotal point in Joann’s life, she knew that she was meant to lead, and be a channel for change. She had a vision and knew how to work it and that is where her healing journey began. She not only started to seek out new holistic modalities, but also teach others as she taught herself.
On the weekends she made it a point to volunteer when the facilities needed help with activities. She worked tirelessly, even though she could not always see the road or direction she was heading in, she always could see the end result. Over the course of seven years Joann experienced every facet in the Assisted Living Industry, from being a nurse’s aide, to coordinating resident care services, to running the kitchen, and passing out medications. She was ready to start running communities and that is exactly what she started to do. As an Executive Director, she has run smaller communities with a resident capacity of 60 residents to running larger communities with over 154 units as well as a community that was specialized for the memory impaired. Throughout her experience, she has gained awareness, empathy skills, and has always strived to be a conscientious leader. She realized that running a business is more about channeling ones energy and always about how you show up!
Fast-forward 25 years later, she has found that working with people has made a profound difference on her life mentally, spiritually and emotionally. She has so much passion about “connection”, and believes that people are meant to be around people, connecting and thriving in life, and not alone. More then a decade ago, Joann completed her Practice license for Reiki (Master), Integrative Energy Practitioner, while working full time as an Executive Director at one of the most reputable AL communities. She also became a Certified Life Coach and Universal Ray Healing Practitioner. She has won numerous awards for outstanding service year after year voted on by families and businesses in the surrounding areas. Joann brings a unique combination of knowledge from intricate jobs in healthcare, combined with a love for the elderly and a need to achieve the best service and not settle for anything LESS both personally and professionally.
