Administrator, RN, LNHA, CDP
The Villas Senior Care Community & Villas Total Rehab

As the administrator of The Villa Senior Care Community, it is Sharon’s responsibility to welcome both residents and employees to our campus. She has 26 years of long-term care experience, which has helped her to understand what families and employees want in a leader. She feels it is her responsibility to lead by example. She comes from a small farming community where you go out of your way to help your neighbor, and she hopes she brings those same beliefs to The Villas. One of Sharon’s favorite things about work is decorating the campus for the holidays.

Albert Pitts

Albert Pitts

Dietary Manager
The Villas Senior Care Community & Villas Total Rehab

Albert has been working for The Villas since November 2002. The one thing that impressed him the most was the warmth and home-like feeling he received on his first day. Ten years later, he still gets that same feeling. Albert grew up in the South, where family connections and southern hospitality go hand-in-hand. He likes to think that he brings those values to work every day. As the dietary manager, Albert’s primary role is to ensure that every resident's nutritional needs are met, but he plays many additional parts as well. He is a waiter during meal service, a guide when someone has lost their way, an ear when someone needs to be heard, but the best and most important role Albert enjoys is giving the best customer service he can every day.

Shannon Adams

Shannon Adams

Dietary Manager
The Villas Assisted Lifestyle

Shannon’s love for food began at an early age. Coming from a long line of great cooks, she naturally found her way up on countertops and peaking over shoulders to catch the smell of blueberry dumplings boiling on the stovetop. She was interested in hospitality throughout her school years, which led to her pursuing a career in the foodservice industry. She worked her way up the corporate ladder for Red Lobster, and with dedication, continuous education, passion for good food, and diligence, Shannon became a role model for the corporation. After 20 years with the seafood family, Shannon decided she needed a change. She relocated to The Villas West in Sherman, where she has happily retired from the restaurant scene. Now, she enjoys being a member of a new family, and each day her heart smiles.
