SHANNON VIALPANDO – Director of Community Relations, Alta Vista Senior Living
Shannon Vialpando joined the Alta Vista Senior Living family in March 2013 as director of community relations. She has over 20 years working in advertising and marketing, and seven years ago decided to find her real passion, with the experience she had. That passion was, and is, senior living!
Working in the senior industry has allowed her to be a big part of the Prescott community! Vialpando sits on the board of directors for Prescott Meals on Wheels, does committee work for the American Diabetes Association, and makes herself available as a resource to the community wherever she can! Hosting events and giving back to those in need are at the top of her priority list! Through Vialpando’s work on these committees, several fundraisers have been developed and have become key signature events, such as the annual Meals on Wheels Queen of Hearts Tea. Held every March at Alta Vista Senior Living Community, the event sells out in a few days and raises over $5000 a year. Vialpando and Alta Vista Senior Living also support the American Diabetes Association. They participate with teams in the annual walk, provide the Alta Vista shuttle to make sure walkers get to the starting line on time, and have been the hosts of a volunteer dinner!
For over 23 years, Vialpando has lived in Prescott where she raised her two daughters as a single mother, teaching them that integrity and work ethic go hand-in-hand. Her girls are her pride and joy! Adding to that, she is the proud grandmother of a beautiful young lady whom she loves dearly!
Alta Vista Senior Living is different. It is a family of residents and staff, and is also family owned! Vialpando believes that her passion and career have crossed paths, and that Alta Vista is home! You don’t find that too often in life, but she has!
