Amber Ralls Promoted To Senior Executive Director Of Legacy Senior Living

Wednesday, February 20, 2019
Amber Ralls has been promoted to senior executive director at Legacy Senior Living, which operates a family of senior living communities throughout the Southeast specializing in independent living, assisted living or Alzheimer’s care services.

In her new role, Ms. Ralls will oversee management of three Virginia-based facilities: Renaissance of Annandale; a memory care community serving Fairfax County in Annandale scheduled to open in early 2019; Renaissance Assisted Living of Greene County and The Harbor at Renaissance, both located in Stanardsville.

Ms.
Ralls brings six years of increasing responsibilities with Legacy Senior Living to her new position. She joined Renaissance Assisted Living of Greene County and The Harbor at Renaissance as its marketing director in 2013, earned certification as a licenced nursing home administrator in 2015 and was named the facilities’ executive director in 2017.

“Amber has shown consummate dedication to the well-being of her residents at her senior living community in all circumstances. Her priority is upholding a high standard of care for the seniors and excellence from her team members. As she transitions into this new role, there’s a lot of excitement about the positive growth she will continue to bring to Legacy Senior Living’s three communities in Virginia,” said Bryan Cook, COO of Legacy Senior Living.

“I love working with seniors and their families. I believe there is no job as rewarding as the senior care field. Very few jobs have its clients tell you they love you, and it’s easy to say that the feeling is mutual,” Ms. Ralls said.

Ralls grew up in Glasgow, Scotland, and believes family is the most important thing in her life. She resides in Charlottesville, Va. with her three children. In her free time, she enjoys relaxing with her family and watching movies.
