We Love What We Do

The Inspired Living Team

Our team of highly trained professionals is dedicated to providing our residents with top-notch hospitality and individualized care. Unlike the common practice in other communities where universal staff work across all departments and care levels, we designate specialty teams under each department. Each associate is specially trained for their specific role in the community, helping them focus on being the very best at what they do.

Inspired Living strives to employ people who are passionate about senior care, and our team represents many of the industry’s best and brightest talent, working at the top of their game. We are proud of these men and women and the work they do every day at Inspired Living. If you would like to join our team, apply here!

Meet Your Executive Director

April Crumley

Why did you get into senior living?

I believe it is a calling; It is a path that finds you. Growing up, I lived with my grandparents throughout many seasons of my life. They were my world and during their later years suffered with dementia. Having the opportunity to care for others and their moms and dads is a blessing and pure joy; I’ve often said that I’ve been blessed with many grandparents and in our community, we truly do become family.

Who inspires you?

My Pappaw, CC Crumley, was my hero! He was a POW in WWII and survived the Bataan Death March. The stories he would share would amaze you! He was admired by many and would do anything for others! He taught me the importance of integrity and to have a strong work ethic. He certainly was an amazing role model. I love and miss him so much!!

What would people be surprised to know about you?

I’ve wrestled an alligator…true story.
Sky diving…once is enough!
FSU Water Ski Team…yes, there is a water ski team.
My testimony…I’ve been through many storms and saved by God’s grace.

Beatles or Elvis?

How did you wind up at Inspired Living?

Well…previously, I was employed at a skilled nursing facility for over 5 years. During this time, I had two separate friends from church inquire about me providing a resume to two separate potential employers. I wasn’t looking at the time but had a sense that God was leading me to the next chapter in my life. After meeting with several members, sharing their vision, and much prayer, God made it clear Inspired Living was my home; I’m truly grateful to be a part of the Inspired family.

What do you want your legacy to be?

My love for people and compassion to help others; I’ve been through many of life’s storms and it is my strong desire that I would leave others with a sense of encouragement and hope; my faith in God is what guides me and directs my life daily.
