Our People

Our staff of professionals is trained in everything from the latest medical care and therapies to healthy and delicious meal preparation. Yet we make room for compassionate connection with residents to take precedence over the necessities of our job descriptions.

We are skilled professionals, yes. And we are here to connect with you in the spontaneous moments that make your life (and ours) more meaningful.

Melissa has a Bachelor's degree in Psychology from Slippery Rock University, is ALA-accredited, holds a Personal Care Home Administrator license from Penn State University and is a member of the National Healthcare Association. She also has a background in social work.

"I'm most focused on communicating to connect with people. This is where everything begins and how we can share stories and important information, empower and uplift each other and positively change lives." Melissa is engaged to Colby and they have a whippet named Romeo.

Pittsburgh senior living Executive ChefExecutive Chef: Nina Stala

Nina began her culinary career in Grand Canyon National Park at Bright Angel and Maswik Lodges. She is ServSafe certified and has spent nearly 20 years working in senior care, learning new techniques and how to make delicious meals that meet various dietary requirements.

"Growing up I would scour my mother's cookbooks trying recipes until I perfected them. I love that Apple Blossom focuses on fresh, quality ingredients and 95+% of our meals are prepared from scratch. It's refreshing and a pleasant change from heat-in-the-bag kitchens often found in senior living communities. We encourage and foster creativity, all in the name of a wonderful dining experience for our residents." Nina lives with her significant other, his mother and their five cats.

Pittsburgh senior living Maintenance DirectorMaintenance Director: Marc Turkily

Marc was born, raised and currently lives in Midway, PA. He has more than five years experience in maintenance and was recently promoted from Maintenance Assistant to Director of Maintenance.

"I have always loved to work with my hands, and I work hard every day trying to live up to my dad's work ethic and the one he instilled in me. The happiest surprise of this job is that while I'm solving problems, fixing things and being challenged, I spend a lot of time in residents' rooms talking with them. We get to know each other on a personal level, and they know they can always come to me for help. Many of them stop me in the halls to say hello and check in, showing continuous appreciation. We are here to make sure everything goes well and our residents are happy, healthy and well care for, but they make us feel pretty special, too." Marc and his kids live a five-minute drive from his childhood home and he is very close to his family.
