The experience of our staff contributes to the high quality care we offer.

Senior staff, led by Steven Jewell, have made The Pines their personal mission.

The mission-driven goals of The Pines cannot be reached without senior staff who approach their jobs as more than a way to earn a living. Look at the tenure of The Pines staff and their record of customer satisfaction. When you do, you’ll feel comfortable asking for more information about vibrant living in a college community.

“Having long known about The Pines before moving here, it was still a pleasure to discover the high level of respectfulness that characterizes The Pines. The respectfulness extends across and to all levels - staff, employees, residents. It creates a very comfortable atmosphere in which to live and, I imagine, to work. Furthermore, in addition to respectfulness, graciousness permeates our living here, and that is another genuine asset.” - a resident of The Pines
