New ISL community, La Marea Senior Living, hires five

La Marea Senior Living, an Integral Senior Living community specializing in assisted living and memory care services, has hired five professionals ahead of its grand opening later this spring.

Anthony Bawalan, LVN, is resident care director; Solana Sloat is Vibrant Life director; Natasha Avedisian is culinary service director; Sebastian Diaz is building services director, and Sylvia Spears is business office director.

Bawalan has worked in a variety of roles, including caregiver and medical technician, in his career, which has spanned more than 16 years. As resident care director, he will be responsible for creating a loving and supporting community for residents.

Sloat will be responsible for creating events and initiatives to improve resident life. Before taking on her new role, she worked as an activities assistant, resident service coordinator and memory care manager at several senior living communities. She earned an undergraduate degree in gerontology at California State University, San Marcos.

Avedisian comes to her new role with 15 years of experience and an associate degree in culinary arts from the Art Institute of California, San Diego. With experience in restaurants, catering companies and cruise lines, she will now be in charge of the community’s Elevate dining program.

Diaz, before being hired for his new position, spent 11 years in the senior living and care industry. He began as a janitor and quickly earned his way to a director position before following his passion for senior care to La Marea, with the vision of helping shape a community from its first day.

Spears possesses more than two decades’ worth of experience in senior living and care, including as an executive director. Her favorite part of the business is supporting associates to create a warm and supportive community atmosphere from the ground up.
