Vineyard Has New Talent!

Join us in welcoming Melissa Bivens as the new Executive Chef for Vineyard Assisted Living. We are excited to have her join our talented team and we look forward to the delicious creations she brings to our community!

"I was born and raised in Battle Creek, MI and graduated from Pennfield High School with a Basketball Scholarship to Kellogg Community College. After completing college I worked for a few Senior Living Communities in Battle Creek and found my love for cooking. I trained under a very talented Executive Chef for 5+ years where I learned all of my cooking skills on the job.


Prior to beginning my position here at Vineyard Assisted Living, I was working as a Traveling Support Chef for a Contracted Food Management Company. I enjoy making food from scratch and helping others improve their cooking skills.


I look forward to working alongside the staff and residents here at Vineyard."
