With more than 25 years of experience in caring for seniors, Landes began her career as a nurse. She has extensive experience working with seniors with dementia.

“I am honored to rejoin the Morning Pointe team and serve the seniors of Happy Valley,” Landes said. “Morning Pointe shares my passion for compassionate senior care and enabling our residents to live life to the fullest.”

Landes currently resides in Rossville with her husband, Sean. Together they pastor The Refuge Church of God.

“Alisha is so well loved in North Georgia and has such a heart for both the assisted living and the memory care residents,” said Abby Medley, vice president of operations for Morning Pointe Senior Living’s Appalachian Region. “These residents and their families couldn’t be in better hands under her leadership.”
