Gale Schmenk

Business Development Liason

Born and raised in SE Michigan, Gale worked the majority of her 20+ years sales career in Ann Arbor; most recently for a manufacturing firm whose product was popular amongst the senior population. It was there she discovered her passion for working with the aging population and with the growing number of baby boomers felt the demand would only continue to grow. Coupling this with the fact that her Mother was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s Disease, she witnessed her own family struggle with the many decisions involved in caring for her  loved one. Her personal battle led her to discover her passion!  In 2017 (after enough years of cold and snow), Gale realized She was in need of a change of scenery so she relocated to Middle Tennessee.  

 

Joining the Visionary Care Consultants team is a career dream come true for Gale. “I believe in our mission that every individual deserves the right to age with dignity! As Business Development Liaison, my goal is to connect clients and family members with the resources they desperately need so they may age in place; where ever they call home.”
