Jane Ford, CRCFA

Executive Director

I am originally from Charleston, SC, but our family have called the Upstate home since 1983. After a career in the hospitality industry, in 1997 my heart found a new passion in working with our senior population. I joined The Gardens team in January 2005 and I truly love working with this amazing team. I strive to make a difference in the lives of our residents and staff, but they are the ones who make a difference in mine.

Ever since I walked through our front doors, I have known that The Gardens is the perfect fit for me. I could not imagine another job that could possibly be more rewarding.
