MEKA SCOTCHLER, Project Manager
Meka’s love for seniors started at the age of 10, singing in a choir that performed in senior living communities all over California. The joy she saw on their faces inspired her to find that same connection throughout her personal and professional life.
Her early career included stints as a retail manager for Starbucks Coffee Company and then residential and commercial real estate sales, but, motivated by her passion for seniors, she joined Ridgeline Management Company as manager and executive assistant to the CEO. Her responsibilities included creating and implementing the corporate budget; developing policies and procedures; hiring and managing administrative staff; overseeing IT needs for the home office and all Ridgeline properties; and overseeing license applications and renewals.
She particularly enjoyed designing and managing tenant improvement projects and was promoted to the role of project manager for all new development and capital expenditure projects.

Rhonda Gomes, Administrative Support/Office Manager
Rhonda’s lifelong passion has been to help other people in a variety of capacities. Seeing the impact that one person can make, no matter how little it may be, is the driving force in all aspects of her life.
This passion has also rolled over into her career which has mainly spanned administrative support and managerial roles in both large corporations and smaller entrepreneurial environments. Roles in Engineering Documentation Administration, Change Management, Project Management, Team Leader and People Management all encompassed the underlying goal of assisting others to hopefully make their jobs and day-to-day lives just a little bit easier and better.
Leading volunteer teams to build Habitat for Humanity homes for families in need around the world continues to re-affirm for her how important it is that everyone has decent, affordable housing but especially seniors, children and the most vulnerable. These experiences have shown the value of providing much needed support to the seniors in our society and giving them the opportunity to live the latter part of their lives in a safe, enjoyable and dignified environment.
Rhonda’s favorite things to do when time allows is being outdoors in warm, sunny weather either hiking, paddleboarding, tinkering in the yard or sitting by the fire and playing games with family, friends and her fur-babies by her side. If she could save every dog in the world, she would.
