Dining Services Director

At Regency Palms Oxnard, we believe food is one of the most important parts of the experience at our community. When envisioning the dining program, we wanted our residents to be excited to sit down for a meal—not just for the food, but the experience as well. Aaron fit the bill. He brings to Regency Palms experience working in senior living, but he also worked as a sous chef at Tower Club, a members-only luxury club and wedding venue in Oxnard. He is a Certified Professional Food Manager. He has a high expectation for presentation, food quality, and healthy living. Aside from three meals a day in our dining room, residents can expect show-stopping seasonal celebrations and specialty menus.
