Relationships Matter Here

Relationships are the cornerstone of our senior living community. We emphasize creating meaningful relationships—we call them deep connections—with staff, residents, and family members. As we get to know our residents more thoroughly, we can adapt their programs and assistance to more accurately meet their needs and preferences.

Life Is Better Here

For more than 30 years, The Arbor Company has been dedicated to providing the luxurious lifestyle and amenities that keep seniors feeling their best.

Community Sales Director

Jeff studied journalism while at Columbia College and believes everyone has a very captivating story, which he is able to explore with all potential and current residents and families. Jeff has been with Arbor Terrace since day one of the transition and takes a lot of pride in being a part of the new start for the community. As he lives in the neighborhood, he had the pleasure of watching the development of the community from when the first brick was placed until today. He savors the opportunity to be a part of its evolution and growth. Although he has only worked in long-term care for nine years, working with seniors comes naturally for Jeff, as he has a very warm and affectionate relationship with his grandparents and holds great admiration for them. Jeff is very invested in the surrounding Highland Park community as he has two daughters who attend school at Highland Park High School. He enjoys playing basketball, working in the garden, and spending all his remaining time with family.

Dining Director

James began his culinary career in the fast-food business when he was 16 years old. All he ever wanted to do is cook, and after working for several North Shore-area fast-food chains, he developed a taste for finer foods. He moved to Atlanta to work for his cousin, a certified Executive Chef opening his own restaurant. Over the next six years, he worked at some of Georgia's hottest restaurants. He moved back to North Shore in 1989 and served as Executive Chef at Bertucci’s in Highwood for seven years. He also enjoyed his work as Corporate Chef for Cucina Roma, for which he opened five restaurants with Italian concepts. Most recently, he has taken on dining from a new perspective as Dining Director at Arbor Terrace Highland Park.
