Each month we profile one of our Chamber ambassadors.
Ambassador profile: Lesley Alkire
After spending 20 years in Haleiwa Hawaii as a ﬂight attendant, teaching scuba diving, owning a coffee company & managing restaurants my husband was offered a job in Santa Rosa as a ﬁreﬁghter. . .so off we flew back to the mainland. I opened a woman’s clothing store in Healdsburg and decided after 6 years it was time to close it and “get my life back” with husband and friends. This was a time in my life where I felt I wanted and needed to do something that ﬁlled my heart. Each day when I go to work at Vintage Sonoma; a senior living community, I feel that in “spades”. Working with families, seniors & loved ones in making decisions that impact their lives and health is amazing. It is also very hard at times but working with a good team and company, it always seems to be worth it.
I joined the Chamber because of the camaraderie this business has with the people of Sonoma. Being an Ambassador for the Chamber has also helped me be more involved in the community and has enabled me to connect with businesses and people and discuss Vintage Sonoma and what we do. We are an independent, assisted and memory care living senior community. We are the only memory care community in Sonoma Valley and because we are smaller than most communities, we have a more home style feeling. I look forward to continuing my relationships within the Chamber and the families I continue to help on a daily basis.
