Leadership

Our goal is to continually foster the growth of our care team and residents, and to always strive to improve our Paintbrush community and the lives of the people who live and work here.

In 2019, a new leadership team was created to deliver the ultimate care experience for residents. This includes top professionals in their field, devoted to delivering the highest quality care, along with Northstar Senior Living, a highly regarded California-based management service to oversee operations. They report directly to the local Paintbrush Board of Directors and owners on day-to-day operations and resident concerns.

This tiered system allows us to ensure that Paintbrush is meeting the top standards of assisted living and memory support, and that our residents and their families continue to get the best care, hospitality and overall experience we can provide.

Jennifer Vasquez
Jennifer VasquezExecutive Director
Born and raised in Santa Rosa, Jennifer has accumulated more than 12 years of experience in senior care, especially assisted living.

Senior living “found her”, she says. Jennifer began her career in 2006 as a bookkeeper for a retail shop while attending college.

When she began working for a senior living community, she found that she liked what she was doing, so she just kept doing it.

As Business Office Manager she loves working with the Paintbrush staff.

When not at Paintbrush, she enjoys spending time with her adult daughter, relaxing with yoga and pilates classes, hiking, cooking and sewing.

She also has two cats, Kitty and Pence, who provide her with hours of entertainment.

Randi Firestone
Randi FirestoneCommunity Relations Director
I love people! Everyone has a story, something to talk about. After my mother was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease, I became fascinated and frustrated – I am determined to not let memory impairment take away the dignity or the story of a residents life.
Working for the Alzheimer’s Association as a walk manager gave me the opportunity to learn more about Dementia and all the moving parts of Alzheimer’s. I joined Paintbrush in January 2021, after working with senior communities in Los Angeles, bringing joy, enrichment and quality of life to seniors in the Central Valley. Sales and marketing is my story- Finding a senior the right home makes my heart sing!
