Regina Trent

SHINE® Memory Care Director

I have loved everything about the last 5 years serving assisted living in activities and memory care. My heart is with helping to enrich the lives of our Memory Care residents and their loved ones. I enjoy learning about each one of our residents, connecting with them where they are, and how we can best love them.

My husband and I blended our families 6 years ago. Jacob will be a freshman at VCU in the fall studying cinematography, Emily will be a freshman at Longwood studying education and Ben is a rising high school junior on the volleyball, basketball, track and swim teams. We love our dog Roxy, beach vacations, and downtime as a family.
