Meet the Team
Nate Presley has more than 25 years of experience in the senior living industry. For years, he worked as a nurse and directly tended to the needs of the residents before taking on different roles throughout the industry, including roles as a unit manager and a director. As the executive director for Sage Valley, he is working with a team of professionals who are truly exceptional at what they do.
