SpringShire welcomes Gostele as team member

SpringShire has hired Valerie Gostele as a new team member. Gostele comes to SpringShire by way of Chicago, where for the past 8½ years she guided families and future residents through the moving process at a continuing care retirement community in Lincolnshire, IL. In this role, she said she enjoyed listening to future residents and learning about their stories.

Prior to working in senior living, Gostele held sales manager positions with Hyatt and Marriott hotels. She always has worked in the customer service and marketing arenas and it was in these positions that she found a passion for working with the senior population. Gostele’s compassion for seniors stems from her close relationship with her parents. She became a large part of her father’s support system when he lived with her for the last 10 years of his life.

From this experience, Gostele said, “I truly believe the need for great camaraderie, comprehensive health care options, superb amenities, and an overall fun and active lifestyle must be available to people in their retirement years.”

Gostele moved to North Carolina to be closer to her daughter. She brings a compassion and understanding to discussing and making the decision to move into a life plan retirement community to SpringShire.

Gostele said, “I look forward to being a part of the success of this beautiful SpringShire community representing the richness and history of Greenville and its residents.”
