Business Office Manager
Hello! My name is Debbie and I am the Director of Administration here at Oakdale of La Mesa. I was born and raised in San Diego and have lived here all of my life. I began working as a young teenager in my father’s local business where I learned the art of true customer service and developed my work ethic. After 10 years with my father, I worked in a variety of industries as receptionist, support staff, office manager, and finally bookkeeping specialist and accountant. I feel that I have spent my life training for this amazing job I have now. I just love working with all of the wonderful residents, our team members, and the management team. I take care of everything business related in our community from billing, payroll and receivables to payables, human resources, and most importantly customer service. I supervise our Concierge staff that is dedicated to serving our residents, their families, and every visitor that passes through our doors 24 hours per day 7 days per week. We are loving, friendly, and devoted to our mission here at Oakdale, providing a warm, welcoming, and supportive environment for our residents and their families. Please stop in to say hello! We would love to meet you!

Hello! My name is Tony. I have been the maintenance Director at Oakdale of La Mesa for the last year and a half. I have been a maintenance director for the past 8 years. Prior to that I lived in Ohio where I purchased and repainted HUD and VA repossessed homes. This position is extremely rewarding and fun because I thoroughly enjoy working with our seniors. I have a Midwestern work ethic, and I hope that it shows in my team while caring for your loved ones.
