Having spent 18 years as a publicist in the music industry, Lori Rolat found herself contemplating a career change. After much consideration, she opted to be part of an industry of compassion. That led her to senior living, where she has happily been serving for more than 10 years. As a native New Yorker, Lori found her move to California four years ago to be an exciting one! She loves being in an industry that bestows the proper honor and dignity to a vital community of individuals.
