Ashley HornbergerDining Services Director
Ashley started her career at Elmcroft as Dietary Assistant and Cook almost 10 years ago. From the start, she enjoyed Elmcroft’s family-oriented work culture, which brought her back to the community after temporarily leaving for a personal move. Ashley transitioned to Business Office Coordinator, but her passion for the culinary field led to her becoming a Dining Services Director.Ashley appreciates the support and opportunities Elmcroft provides to help their associates succeed. Today, her close-knit team and community feels like her extended family. “I have also loved that the company is always looking to promote within, first and foremost. I would not be where I am today if that was not the case. Elmcroft has given me the opportunity to advance within throughout the years and I am so appreciative of that!”
Nicole began her career with Elmcroft as a Certified Nursing Assistant in 2009. “I soon found that the Elmcroft of Muncie senior living community was not just a wonderful new job for her, but a place that felt like it had always been home.”
When a marketing and sales department and memory care receptionist role became available, it was the perfect opportunity for Nicole to grow her skills. She even had the chance to serve as interim Sales Director occasionally before taking the role on full-time in 2016. Recently, Nicole has taken a Business Office Coordinator position and hopes to start classes to gain her Administrative license within the next year. She hopes to become an Executive Director in the future.

Laura Scavinski, LPNExecutive Director
Laura began her career at Elmcroft of Medina in August of 2014. Laura's intentions were to remain a PRN Nurse for the community as she had full time employment elsewhere. “It only took a few short days to recognize how special this community is.” Coworkers became friends and residents filled a special place in her heart. Not too long after starting, Laura transitioned into the Resident Services Director role, the primary nursing role in Elmcroft communities today.
Laura's desire to continue to learn more about serving seniors led to receiving a Combined Degree Program certification. This just sparked more interest in how to better serve the community that became so dear to her heart. Laura's determination to learn and grow with this company led to accepting the role of executive director two years ago. Laura hopes to continue to grow with the company and proudly serve seniors.
