Nancy Leifheit, Operations

& Interim Executive Director

Nancy has known since she was 14 years old and working at summer camps for mentally challenged children and adults that she wanted to provide care and comfort to people who need assistance. She began her career of assisting seniors nearly 40 years ago at the onset of what is now known as Senior Living. She managed two homes, one for 22 women and another for 5 men, in what was then called “Homes for the Aged.” Nancy has experienced, firsthand, the growth and transformation of the senior living field over the course of her career. Prior to joining Voorhies and Associates, Nancy worked 10 years with a large corporation that served both Skilled Nursing Facilities and Assisted Living Communities. Nancy has served as Executive Director at numerous Assisted Living Communities throughout Oregon—bringing her warmth and positivity to seniors and their families and assuring them a lifestyle of safety, comfort, and well being. Nancy is an Oregon Health Care Association certified ALF/RCF administrator. Nancy’s biggest joy is spending time with her grandchildren, watching them grow and become young adults. She is extremely proud of them and values the experiences they share together.
