Meet Jennifer Bandler
Executive Director - The Retreat at Berryville
Jennifer M. Bandler comes to The Retreat at Berryville with over twelve years of experience in the healthcare field, with almost six years of those as an executive director. While originally from Connecticut, her life as an army brat has allowed her to travel to many different countries, as well as most of the east coast. She is the daughter of a nurse, which is where she begin her “career” in senior care, assisting with activities at a young age. Being around the seniors at her mother’s nursing home, as well as her own grandparents, Jennifer was learning first hand of amazing life stories and experiences this population had to share. She received her BS in Biology from Loyola College of Maryland and MBA from Mount St. Mary’s University, and quickly found herself back in the healthcare environment, truly finding her passion when she became an Assisted Living Facility Administrator for the state of Virginia. She has worked in both Virginia and West Virginia as an Executive Director bringing her passion to not only the residents, but the families and associates. She lives in Harpers Ferry, WV with her two amazing high school aged boys, Zachary and Matthew.
Everything we do at The Retreat at Berryville begins and ends with service.
