Meet Your Executive Director:


Paul Botana-Gumbs worked in home care for many years before joining Benchmark in 2018.
What Brought You to Benchmark:

As a former healthcare partner of Benchmark, I had the opportunity to visit their communities on a number of occasions and was always impressed by their high level of caring and compassion.

Fun Fact:

I have four children with three of them born in December. By some sort of cosmic coincidence, all four were born on a Thursday!
