Meet Melinda Carnes

Executive Director – The Phoenix at Lake Lanier


Melinda joins Phoenix Senior Living with 11 years of elder care services experience, primarily in North Georgia.  Professionally, she focused initially on Private Duty In-Home Care before venturing into the realm of Independent Living, Assisted Living, and Memory Care.  In addition, she understands the impact of caring for a senior loved one as she personally took care of a loved one when she was 19 years old due to life circumstances.  She knows what it is like to be that family member ‘navigating the waters’ of deciding what environment is right for him or her and to feel the odd dynamic of being an authority figure for a person who taught me how to tie my shoes. A native of Gainesville, when she was born and raised, Melinda attended the University of Georgia and completed her degree at Brenau University.  Melinda enjoys her family and friends and her Chesapeake Bay Retriever “Maggie”.
