    Meet Your Regional Director of Operation:

    Julie Lombardo, MSN, has been with Benchmark for over 6 years. She worked as a nurse leader directing acute care, home care and hospice organizations for over a decade before transitioning to senior living, having been drawn to it while overseeing the care of residents at assisted living communities. 

    What Brought You to Benchmark:

    I was attracted to Benchmark's high standards and just around the time I was considering making a move the perfect position opened. I can't imagine being anywhere else! 

    Fun Fact:

    The beach is our family's happy place. My husband works in hospitality, so our time together is infrequent. In the summer, we love to just unplug surrounded by sun and sand.
