Meet Melissa Dressler, Our Executive Director at Oakmont of Escondido Hills.

Oakmont of Escondido Hills is proud to have Melissa Dressler as the Executive Director of our retirement community in beautiful San Diego County. Melissa attended college in San Diego and after a brief time away from the area following school, she found herself missing the atmosphere and community and returned to stay. With more than ten years of experience in senior living, she comes to Oakmont with a wealth of industry knowledge and a passion for service excellence.

After graduating with a Bachelor’s degree from San Diego State University, Melissa decided to put her skills to use in the field of senior care. She has always had a love for helping seniors and their families, and credits this to the close relationship she had with her grandparents growing up. This special experience gave Melissa a passion for understanding how to best care for seniors in all stages of their retired life including independent living, assisted living, and memory care.

With her exceptional credentials in senior living, Melissa could have worked for any organization she liked. She chose Oakmont of Escondido Hills because, “Oakmont is known for their high standard of care and their beautiful and inviting communities. I wanted to be a part of a company that cares for their residents as much as they care for their families and staff.”

When asked about Oakmont of Escondido Hills specifically, Melissa says, “When you walk into Oakmont of Escondido Hills you feel the warmth and friendly environment right away. Our staff and residents enjoy welcoming others and making them feel like they are a part of our family.” Melissa’s resident-focused approach has resulted in a team that delivers exceptional service to all residents each and every day.

Melissa and her husband reside in the Hidden Meadows community in Escondido Hills. They are first time parents to an eight-month old daughter. In their free time, they enjoy playing volleyball and golf and spending time with family and friends.
