A Solid Foundation of Selfless Service


Denise Eleiott, LNHA | Executive Director

Prior to starting her journey with Bethesda in May 2016, Denise served seniors in health care for 27 years, holding positions in payroll, human resources, billing and billing office management, as well as a Chief Operating Officer. She has been a licensed administrator since 1995. Over the years, her love for seniors, and truly for all people, has grown to be her passion in life. She feels God has opened this door, and through Him she wants to touch people’s lives. “What I love most is seeing those familiar faces that we have been entrusted to care for and love,” she says. “They truly are our second family.”

Connie Garrison| Director of Sales & Marketing

Connie began her career with The Gardens in May of 2005 as the receptionist, and within a year was promoted to the Business Office Manager for both the Assisted and Independent Living Communities. Connie loved what she was doing, but the Marketing Director position came available and she submitted her application. Having been the Marketing Director now for 8 years, she feels this is a God-given ministry as she helps residents and their families adjust to this new phase of life. Helping people is why Connie loves her job.

Jennifer Storey | Director of Sales & Marketing

Jennifer began her career with Bethesda in 2013 as a Front Desk Receptionist for The Gardens. She had discovered the joy that working with seniors could bring to her life while working for an ophthalmology practice, and she jumped at the chance to work with seniors full-time with The Gardens. In 2016, Jennifer transitioned to her current role as Director of Sales & Marketing of Independent Living, and she has loved the opportunity to get to know the residents even better. She says it is a pleasure to be a resource and guide for families during times of change and unfamiliarity, and she feels extremely blessed to work with seniors at such an important stage in their lives.
