Jim Wood

Jim Wood was born and raised in Berryville, Arkansas, in the Ozark Mountains. His first career was in hotel management: He spent more than 20 years with Embassy Suites and Hampton Inns. For the past 10+ years, Jim has worked in senior living, his first job being in Wilmington, North Carolina.

"I fell in love with my residents," says Jim. "At the hotel, it was rare to get to know your guests, but in senior living you, get to love on them every day. I am so blessed to have found my second calling in senior living."

Jim holds a B.A. in business administration from the College of the Ozarks and a master's in psychology and counseling from the University of Missouri.

Jim relocated to Ft. Lauderdale three years ago from Kansas City, but his heart is still with the Royals and the Chiefs! Florida is the ninth state Jim has called home, and it’s where he plans to retire one day. He currently lives in Pompano Beach with his Maltese, Cassie, and kitty, Carly.
