Meet Laurie Tomasello, our Executive Director at Oakmont of Pacific Beach.
Laurie Tomasello brings over 23 years of senior living experience to our one-of-a-kind retirement community in Pacific Beach, California. One of Laurie’s first jobs was running her own business where she trained with a CPA and focused on all aspects of business accounting. From there she moved on to a design-build firm on the east coast where she served as a Marketing Director for the next six years. These six years allowed her to prove herself as a knowledgeable expert in all aspects of leasing operations for two large CCRC Retirement Communities. During her time working with CCRC Retirement Communities, Laurie fell in love with the ability to interact with residents while also performing valuable business functions for the retirement communities she served.
In 2000, Laurie had the opportunity to move to San Diego from Virginia with her two children and jumped at the opportunity. Laurie’s love for seniors, business administration, and, of course, being surrounded by the beach naturally led her to Oakmont Senior Living’s latest retirement community in Pacific Beach. When asked why Laurie selected Oakmont Senior Living over other Senior Living Organizations, without hesitation she replied “I love working for Oakmont Senior Living as they are the company that provides the highest standard of excellence in caring for seniors in all of San Diego. I love the fact that the company is family owned and operated, and that the employees are hands-on in caring for each resident. It is this family owned approach to one-on-one caregiving that allows Oakmont Senior Living to provide the best resident experience possible.”
With Oakmont of Pacific Beach being one of the first coastal retirement communities to call San Diego home, it is no wonder that staff and seniors alike are excited to call it home. Laurie often says that “The sunshine, the smell of ocean air, and the energy of Pacific Beach set it apart from all other retirement communities. Anyone that loves the ocean would want to live here. It truly feels like an endless summer!”
