Introducing Kathleen Gilbey, our Executive Director. Kathleen comes to Oakmont of Carmichael after 30 years of experience in the hospitality industry where she held the General Manager position for the past 15 years with upscale brands such as Westin and Sheraton. In her last position, Kathleen was the General Manager at the Sheraton Grand Hotel in Sacramento. Kathleen also has experience in senior living and previously held the Executive Director role with Brookdale Communities in both Chicago and West Palm Beach.
Kathleen has found that many of the skills she honed running luxury hotels transfers well into the senior living industry. She feels that every day is an opportunity to make someone’s life better with paying attention to details, listening empathetically and finding ways to surprise and delight her residents.
Residing in West Sacramento, Kathleen and her husband recently celebrated their 30th wedding anniversary and enjoy gardening, cooking, hiking and exploring the great outdoors.
