Hi, I’m Apryl, the Executive Director here at Ashwood Court and I’m blessed to be working with a great team of directors and staff. I’m from California and I’ve lived in Texas for 23 years.
I worked 10 years in retail management before I was introduced to working with seniors and I can’t imagine doing anything else. I started out as a Resident Aide on the floor and fell in love with my Residents. I became a certified Activities Director and after a year or so moved into the Business Office. I became a Certified Assisted Living Manager and moved into my new role as Executive Director.
I live in the Lake Worth area with my wonderful husband and 2 cats. I have 3 children and 4 amazing grand kids.
I love what I do and I look forward to many more years at Ashwood Court.
Hi, my name is Dawn and I have been a nurse for 35 years and have loved every minute of it. I’ve been the Wellness Director at Ashwood Court for almost 5 years now.
I have always been a Texas girl and lived most of my life in the Fort Worth area. I’ve ventured into other areas of nursing in the past, but I always come back to geriatrics. I love caring for our Residents and so does my wonderful staff.
We love hearing our Residents’ stories and learning from them. They are our living history.
Please come and be a part of the Ashwood Court family. We can’t wait to love you.
Director of Marketing
Hi, I’m Tammy the Director of Marketing here at Ashwood Court and I am looking forward to meeting you!
I grew up in Oklahoma but moved to Texas as soon as I finished college with a degree in geriatrics specializing in Alzheimer and dementia care. I’ve spent most of my life working for senior living companies in and around Fort Worth. I worked for one of the largest in the nation until I was convinced to join the Ashwood team almost two years ago and I’m so glad I did.
I feel blessed every day because I get to work with the most awesome Residents, families and staff. I can’t image working anywhere else.
It would be an honor to care for you and your family.
Chef & Dining Services Director
Hello everyone, my name is Dorothy and I’m the Chef and Dining Services Director at Ashwood Court.
We take pride in making our home cooked meals and our desserts from scratch. I joined the Ashwood Court team almost 13 years ago and have loved every minute of it.
I was born in a small town in west Texas called Breckenridge and later moved farther west to an even smaller town called Rotan. After graduating high school, I moved to the big city, Abilene, where I worked as a chef at a senior living community for 10 years. I eventually worked my way up to Assistant Director before moving to Fort Worth.
When I’m not cooking for all of our wonderful Residents, I like to travel and spend time with my family.
I can’t wait to meet you.
Hello, my name is Duane. I’ve been the Maintenance Director for Ashwood Court for nearly three years.
Before joining the Ashwood team, I spent 18 years in the commercial heating and air conditioning field. Prior to that, I spent time as a correctional officer for the State of Texas and served proudly in the U.S. Navy as an avionics technician for four years after graduating high school.
Along with general maintenance, I oversee the housekeeping and laundry service and transportation. Our team works really hard to keep the building clean, safe and a place our Residents are proud to call home.
Come take a look and I think you’ll enjoy our spacious community and everything we’re doing and the places we are going.
Hello, I’m Kisha and I am the Activities Director at Ashwood Court where we are one big family!
I am a people person, mother of three and have lived in Fort Worth all my life.
I’ve been working here at Ashwood for almost 10 years and have done almost everything. This is not just a job, but my passion and it is an honor to get to work and bond with our Residents, families and staff. I have a big heart and love what I do. And most of all, I love our Residents. They make it all worthwhile.
When I am not at Ashwood, I am a member of a women’s social club and enjoy spending time with family.
Whether you like spending a beautiful day strolling through the Arboretum, touring Cowboys Stadium, going to the casino or just spending a quiet evening playing dominos, Ashwood has got you covered.
Business Office Manager
Hi, my name is Gary and I have been at Ashwood Court since 2014 serving as the Business Office Manager. I really like what I do because I get to work with all of our Residents and their families every month.
I’ve retired more than once and just keep coming back for more. I’ve worked in a lot of different fields over the years but have spent most of my career working with billings and collections of some sort.
I’m a native North Texan and lived most of my life in Fort Worth where my wife and I raised two wonderful boys. I have personally dealt with the effects of dementia and cared for my wife until I was no longer able to and moved her into a community where she could get the extensive care she needed.
I serve as an elder for my church and enjoy volunteering with various charitable organizations in Tarrant County.
I have a passion to serve our Residents and their families and look forward to meeting you.
