Theresa Taplin

Executive Director

My passion has been in serving the senior population for over 28 years and those that provide care for them. I had the honor and privilege of caring for my great aunt the last year of her life in a community that I was the Executive Director in, for me it is not just a job, but rather a lifestyle. I have worked in every area of Assisted Living in my 28 year career, first as a Nursing Assistant, then a floor nurse, a charge nurse, then as an Executive Director, Regional Director of Operations, and then as Vice President of Operations before coming to Shenandoah. I am a nurse of 21 years, a Licensed Administrator, Certified Dementia practitioner, and Preceptor for the state of Virginia . I enjoy being with my family, taking photos of nature, and writing poems. I feel honored to be a part of Shenandoah Senior Living.

Shiloh Cockrell

Business Office Director

I have two beautiful daughters and I started in healthcare in 2016. I have worked as a Certified Nursing Assistant for many years and I received my RMA in 2018. One of my favorite places to work is in memory care. I have specialized in memory care for the past 6 years and plan to further my education with dementia and Alzheimer’s. One of my favorite things about working with memory care residents is their personalities. Shenandoah has provided me with a great team, and amazing residents, this isn’t just a work environment, this is my second home.

Chris Payne

Maintenance Director

I have 4 children and 1 beautiful granddaughter. In my spare time, I like to go camping and spend time with my family. I started my journey in healthcare 2 years ago as a dietary aide. One of my favorite things about working with seniors is getting to know who they were before they came to assisted living. Shenandoah has allowed me to better know the residents individually and for that I am grateful.

Tiffany Pond

Activities Director

I have 5 amazing children. In my free time I like to cook and bake. I started in healthcare in the year 2015 as a home health aide, I switched to assisted living in 2017, one of the best rewards of working at Shenandoah as activity director is engaging with the resident’s to bring them a better quality of life. Working with seniors has taught me to live life to the fullest even through the dark times.
