Environmental Services Director

Brian Bessette

After nearly 20 years as an automotive technician, I decided to make a career change. I fell into Facility Management for a psychiatric and substance abuse hospital, as a general mechanic, in Massachusetts and fell in love! After 4 years in a hospital setting, my family and I made the decision to pack our things and move to Arizona. Since 2022, I have been working at the Gardens of Sun City as the Environmental Services Director. I am fortunate enough to combine my love of working with my hands while also being able to direct overall building repairs. What I love most about my position is being able to interact with each resident on a daily basis. Knowing I have a direct impact on their life, while maintaining the building brings me a great sense of purpose.

Dietary Services Director

Roger Wenz

After working in corporate restaurants for 30 years, I moved to the hotel/bar side of the hospitality industry for some time before opening my own catering business. I’ve had the pleasure of serving seniors for 5 years now. The most rewarding part of senior living is being able to create food that brings back memories for them and seeing their smiles after providing them with a meal they enjoyed. Being able to discuss how they used to prepare meals or specific items truly inspires me to continue to strive to give them the very best on a daily basis. Working at The Gardens of Sun City has been an amazing experience. The staff and management team here truly care about others and it gives The Gardens a warm and homelike feeling for our residents.

I started my career working in the hospitality industry. I then had the pleasure of caring for my father, who was a Vietnam veteran. He is the reason I jumped into the senior living industry. I started 10 years ago as a Sales Manager for a senior living in Prescott, AZ. From there I decided that I wanted to expand my knowledge in working with seniors, and became a Marketing Director for a hospice organization in Maricopa County. I started working as the CRD at The Gardens of Sun City in late 2021. I love everything about this community; my coworkers, residents, and families. I have learned that this isn’t a job, it’s my calling. Everyday my cup is filled with love and respect for everyone that comes through our doors. I am so very thankful that I was given the opportunity to work at The Gardens and every day I am blessed to be around such amazing people.
