    Meet Your Executive Director:  

    Paul Botana-Gumbs worked in home care for many years before joining The Birches in 2018. He was promoted to executive director in 2019.

    What Brought You to Benchmark:

    As a former healthcare partner of The Birches, I had the opportunity to visit the community 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!
