Meet Your Executive Director:
Cheryl Moran originally joined The Atrium in 2012 as director of business administration. After completing Benchmark's Emerging Leaders program, she was promoted to executive director in 2017.
What Brought You to Benchmark:
I was Called to Care for those with dementia because my dad was diagnosed with it over 20 years ago. I wanted to help others who experienced the same challenges that I had.
I am a proud Nonni of three, including twin boys.
