Trina Anderson, Executive Director
Trina’s fondest memories of her childhood include lessons she learned from her grandparents. Her grandfather sold cars and ran his own dealership and her grandmother taught her the gift of unconditional love, baking sweet things and gardening. She began her career in senior living in 2009 at another BPM community in Oregon and then moved to Las Vegas, transferring to this very community in 2010 to be the Community Relations Director. Now, in 2017 she is returning as our Executive Director and couldn’t be more thrilled.
She took a break from the senior living industry for a short time as a Realtor specializing in working with seniors and received her SRES (Senior Real Estate Specialist) designation. She also started her own Senior Move Company where she assisted seniors in the downsizing of their home during the transition of moving into community living. Trina assisted with the coordination of the movers and helped decorate the resident’s new home to resemble their previous one. This gave her a unique opportunity to learn even more about the challenges that seniors face when making difficult life decisions like which community to choose and what to bring. To fulfill her dream and a promise made to her grandmother, Trina decided to return to senior living. She earned her Residential Facility Administrators License and worked at another community as their Executive Director before returning to Heritage Springs. She is excited to be part of the BPM Family again.
Trina lives in Las Vegas with her husband Craig. Between the two of them they have five beautiful children that they are very proud of and one cocker spaniel.
