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 team.”
