Patricia Russell,  Assisted Living Locators Washington D.C. franchisee, has 25 years’ experience as a long-term care nursing administrator before joining the company. “With my nursing experience and this franchise opportunity, I have helped many seniors and their families transition back into the community living with dignity and a better quality of life,” said Russell.
