Shannon Boudreaux Named LALA 2015 Outstanding Executive Director The Executive Director of Houma Assisted Living & Memory Care Community honored at this year’s Louisiana Assisted Living Association Annual Conference
Houma, LA- Shannon Boudreaux, Executive Director of the The Suites at Sugar Mill Point Assisted Living & Memory Care for over eight years, was selected as the 2015 Outstanding Executive Director at this year’s annual Louisiana Assisted Living Association conference. The conference, which took place this week in New Orleans, is a major regional industry gathering for assisted living & memory care professionals from all over the state of Louisiana. Shannon was recognized at a special ceremony on Wednesday morning for her tireless dedication to ensuring that the Suites provides the most exceptional assisted living & memory care in the area, an effort that has been recognized by Houma citizens that have voted The Suites at Sugar Mill Point the Best Assisted Living Community throughout Houma & Thibodaux in the Courier and Daily Comet’s annual Readers’ Choice Awards for several years running.
Shannon was presented with the award by Tyler Troutman, COO of The Suites at Sugar Mill Point’s owner/operator Schonberg and Associates, and the individual that nominated Shannon for the honor. In his emotional speech, Tyler called “the sense of family that Shannon has developed at the Suites one that all assisted living communities aspire to create,” an accomplishment that “could not be achieved without the selfless giving of Shannon’s time, commitment and passion for those she serves.”
Citing Shannon’s tendency to go above and beyond for her residents and team members, often at the expense of her own finances and scarce personal time, Tyler praised the overwhelming passion and determination Shannon puts into ensuring the wellbeing of everyone at her community, stating that “Shannon treats each and every one of her residents like they are her own mother and father- she doesn’t just expect the very best for them, she demands it.”
Tyler concluded his thoughts with Elbert Hubbard’s famous quote, “Do your work with your whole heart, and you will succeed,” a quote that he said “epitomized the root of Shannon’s continued professional growth and success.”
The Suites was Schonberg’s very first community, and it continues to serve as the flagship example of the standard of excellence in care that has become Schonberg’s trademark. For more information on what sets The Suites at Sugar Mill Point community apart.
