Meet Your Executive Director:


Amanda Bumin joined Adelaide in 2022 from North Carolina, where she served as a community director and regional director for several skilled nursing and assisted living communities. She has a master’s in healthcare administration from Indiana State University.
What Brought You to Benchmark:

My husband accepted a position as the dean of the graduate school at Stonehill College, so we relocated here. Working for such a highly regarded company like Benchmark and a special place like Adelaide is a true honor. I couldn’t be more excited to be here!

Fun Fact:

In my free time, I enjoy yoga, reading and exploring New England.
