Meet Sharon

Unique to Bishop Spencer Place and separate from the social workers in our health care areas, we have a dedicated independent living coordinator, Sharon Pace. This invaluable service is offered as a benefit to help our aging apartment residents stay independent for as long as possible. As a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) and with over 20 years experience at Bishop Spencer Place, Sharon provides personalized care and attention to our residents during move-in and when needs change requiring a transition, as well as at other difficult times. She is an incredible resource to our independent living residents and to our community.
