Stephen Marucci – Director Of Rehab
Stephen Marucci is often described as the charismatic gentleman who has the innate ability to walk in a room and make others feel comfortable. His commitment to care here is unmatched. From day one of working here, he’s treated our company as if it was his. Being someone that was once the regional director of rehab services (for 14 buildings), he thoroughly understands what it takes to make a company work, and we’re glad to have him here.
Maggie Roane – Director of Admissions & Marketing
Maggie Roane is one of our newest staff members, being that she’s only been here three years (which says a lot about our retention rate!). Growing up she was an athlete, playing soccer, basketball, and rugby, until she realized that she had a bigger purpose that involved helping people. She went to college for psychology, which originally led her to the field of social work. From there she eventually went into admissions, and then marketing. She possesses great interpersonal skills that stem from having such a big family and the fact that her mother was a caregiver. While her goal is to admit as many people as she can, she still very much cares about the services being provided to every resident on an individual basis. She is one of the many people who make this place great!\
Orlando Estrada – Director of Housekeeping
Although Orlando Estrada may appear very young, he’s been working here for 23 years. Ironically, 23 is a number that he’ll never forget because it serves as an intimation of his dedication to great customer service. 23 in fact, is also known to be Michael Jordan’s number, and when Orlando was a housekeeper at The Sheridan he had the opportunity to see Michael Jordan himself, but when presented with the choice between waiting for the basketball legend to appear or delivering a pillow to a customer’s room- he chose the customer. That’s just who he is. This is a guy who genuinely enjoys his job and the people lives’ who are improved by him doing so. Even though he loves the team he works with, the residents of Riverside are the people whom he owes all his hard work and ethics too.
Gina Kastrup – Director of Social Work
Initially, in 1996, Gina Kastrup was hired during someone’s maternity leave as a social worker for the Alzheimer’s unit. Through a peculiar turn of events though, she was rehired exactly a year later as a Social Worker for the dementia unit and Program Director for the Alzheimer’s unit. She stayed in these positions for 10 years, until she ultimately was offered the position she’s holds now. During the time she worked as the Program Director though, she was also volunteering for the Alzheimer’s Association and even ran a support group there. She’s someone who finds fulfillment in being able to support families through challenging times. A simple “Thank You” is all the motivation she needs to keep doing what she does.
Brendan Coburn, RDN, CDN – Director of Clinical Nutrition
Brendan Coburn became a dietitian in 2013, and began working in long-term care since 2018. He got into nutrition because of his love for food.
