Under her stewardship, Assisted Living Locators is setting the standard for care transition. Her company is also the first senior placement service to achieve system certification in dementia care.

“It’s an honor to be named a McKnight’s Pinnacle Award winner and be among the inspiring leaders in the senior care industry,” said Olea. “I’m proud that through my company, we help seniors, and their families find the right care option and peace of mind.”

“With the Pinnacle Awards, McKnight’s is honoring the individuals who have not only reached the top of the profession but managed to remain there for years,” said Publisher Craig Roth. “They’ve inspired us in the past and they’ll continue to do so for as long as they remain in the field.”

Nominations were judged by an external panel of industry experts. All winners will be honored at an in- person celebration on March 7 in Chicago, IL. For more information about the 2023 McKnight’s Pinnacle Awards, please visit https://www.mcknightspinnacleawards.com/.
