Fran Davis, Executive Director

I joined the Oaks team in 1995 as a C.N.A. on the Skilled Nursing Floor where I was awarded 1998 C.N.A. of the Year. After owning and operating a cleaning business with my Sister and holding a brief position at a local pharmacy I returned to The Oaks as the Assisted Living Administrator in 2004. I held that position for 15 years until accepting my current role as Executive Director in June of 2019. I originally came to Florida from New York with my then 5 year old son Michael.

When I'm not working with our seniors, I enjoy spending time with my family, and gardening.
