Waltonwood Ashburn senior living community has added several new members to its team. Mark Frazier is marketing manager, John Harder is director of culinary services, and Rayando “Rudy” Williamson is environmental service manager.
The three will play a strategic role in the community, which is under construction with plans to open in the last quarter of 2017. This is the first Waltonwood community in Northern Virginia, and it will offer luxury independent living, assisted living and memory care for seniors.
With more than seven years of experience in senior living, Frazier has held various positions leading sales and marketing initiatives in retirement communities and senior services companies, becoming well-known in the industry. Frazier also has spent time volunteering for organizations such as the Alzheimer’s Association and the Parkinson’s Foundation.
Harder has more than 12 years of experience supervising and managing culinary operations. He spent his past two years as a chef de cuisine and executive chef in a senior living community, hiring and managing kitchen staff and designing menus on a weekly basis. Before Harder began his career in the senior living field, he worked for 10 years in hospitality in supervisory and management positions.
With 20 years of experience in maintenance services, Williamson comes to Ashburn after working six years as a maintenance coordinator at a senior living community in Florida.
