A message from the
General Manager

As a native of the Puget Sound and long-time Seattle resident, I am proud to be part of a local company whose communities embrace and embody the neighborhoods they serve. This is very apparent at Merrill Gardens at The University, with its close proximity to the University of Washington and all the wonderful cultural and educational opportunities in Northeast Seattle.

With over 20 years’ experience in senior living, I have had the privilege to meet so many wonderful families. I look forward to continuing to do so here at Merrill Gardens at The University, all in the same community I call home.
