Leading Sugar Hill Retirement Community has been an eye-opening experience for Executive Director Pam Bigwood.
After spending more than 30 years in the hospitality industry, Pam wanted to return home to New Hampshire.
“I had no preconceived ideas of what Sugar Hill was when I walked through the doors. I knew it was a retirement community, and that’s it,” she says.
She was, admittedly, surprised by the vibrancy of the residents.
“It’s eye-opening to get to know the residents. They’re happy and healthy. They’re hiking, they’re working out at the fitness center, they’re active in the community. They still have a lot of life to live.”
Her experience in the hospitality industry enables her to focus on what attracts residents to Sugar Hill, as well as its role in the community.
“I’m here to help the residents and help the community as a whole,” she remarks.
