Alex Vice, Memory Care Coordinator

Our Memory Care Coordinator Alex is originally from the beautiful state of Tennessee.  At the age of 19 he moved to Portland, Oregon and began his healthcare career which has been his field and passion his entire adult life. He obtained his BA in healthcare administration in January of 2016 and is currently working on his MBA.  When asked about his work he said, “I enjoy what I do and truly believe that if we lead with love, then at the end of the day we can be proud of what we accomplish that day.”

In his free time he enjoys being outside hiking or just being with friends.  Alex also enjoys driving and meeting new people, so he moonlights as an Uber driver.  If you happen to be visiting at the end of his shift and need a ride don’t be surprised if he is your driver!

Karen Winegar, Dining Services Director

Karen joined the Royalton Place family in 1999 as a third cook and today is our Dining Services Director.  She really loves her job and has a passion for the residents.  One of her favorite things to do is use family recipes given to her by the residents so she can put them on the menu for everyone to enjoy.  

Karen has three boys, thirteen grandchildren and many adopted others.  Her hobbies include cooking and being with her family.

Tory Nelson, Building Services Director

Tory joined us as our Building Services Director in 2017 after spending eight years doing property maintenance for both large and small companies as well as private residences.  What he likes best about maintenance is the diversity of tasks he does on any given day.

Tory is a 7th generation Oregonian and has lived here all his life. When not working, Tory likes listening to a wide variety of music. He also enjoys reading fiction novels and writing short stories as well as poems.

Megan Garri, Community Relations Director

Megan Garri joined the Royalton Family as a Receptionist in the spring of 2016, where she has since grown in her career and passion for seniors.

Before joining our team she worked in cosmetics as a professional makeup artist. While she still enjoys the art of cosmetics, she was longing for something that fulfilled her heart and jumped at the opportunity to become a part of our resident’s lives.

“I love being a part of this family. Coming to work and making a difference in the lives of not only the residents, but their family members is the most amazing feeling. My heart is full each day I leave.”

Megan enjoys spending her free time with her family and fur babies. She has a 4 year old Corgi Chihuahua mix named Tate, a kitten named Polly, and Harper the hedgehog.
