MJ Giovanette - Emerald Village
June 24, 2013
MJ Giovanette celebrated her first year anniversary as the Executive Director of Emerald Village in North Olmsted, Ohio on June 24th, 2014. As a Licensed Nursing Home Administrator in the state of Ohio, with a BA in Sociology from Notre Dame, MJ started her career in Senior Living as an Executive Director for two communities at Sunrise Senior Living and then Brookdale Senior Living.
In her busy day as ED, MJ feels that spending time with the residents of Emerald Village is a priority. “I can’t wait to go to work in the morning. Between the residents, team members, families and providers, we serve many people each day and sometimes the time just flies.”
The summer weekends finds MJ at her cottage on Sandusky Bay, most often on her jet ski and sometimes accompanied by her dog Lenny. Lenny loves to be in dog pageants and pooch parades and has won many ribbons. The winter months may find her traveling to St Thomas where she hopes to retire someday.
MJ would like to see continued growth for Vista Prairie and Emerald Village. “Our goal is to always serve our residents well and have a happy and productive team. We have a stellar reputation in our community and I would like to keep it that way! It is so rewarding to work for an organization that “walks the walk” and lives their mission everyday.”
