Meet Your Executive Director

Nicole Sutton

Hello, my name is Nicole Sutton. I was born and raised here in sunny south Florida. I have worked in senior living for over 20 years.

I began my career in senior living as a receptionist at a local nursing home. I immediately realized my passion for serving seniors. Since then, I have been blessed with the opportunity to experience and serve in all areas of senior living. In 2016, I accepted my first position as Executive Director of an Assisted Living Community in Fort Lauderdale, FL. This is where I discovered my true calling to create unique and memorable experiences for my residents, staff, and family members.  

I am a mom to three sons, John (24), Cody (22), and Cristian (16) who I raised as a single mother.  My boys are my pride and joy. In my spare time I enjoy cooking for my family, cruising around in my jeep, fishing, and watching the Miami Dolphins. 

I look forward to making a difference in the lives of the moms and dads we serve at Inspired Living at Royal Palm every day!

Christy Senior Care

Inspirations/Why Senior Care

Her passion for senior care started when she was in grade school as she enjoyed volunteering in local Assisted Living communities around holidays. Christy only had 1 living grandparent when she was born that but passed away when she was only 8 years old. She craved the wisdom that only our Elders could share.
