Lena Austin

Director of Marketing and Sales

“Lena joined the Vineyard team in March 2021 and brings with her over 10 years of Hospitality experience and over 20 years in Sales and Marketing. I enjoy being part of my community and engaging with its residents and business owners. I am excited to share the Vineyard with everyone and have the community join us during events. My passion to make a difference is what led me to Vineyard Assisted Living where I can be an integral part in supporting families during times of transition and making our community a home away from home for our residents. I am married with 2 children and enjoy horseback riding, reading, and hiking with my German Shepherd.“

Aaron Gamble

Executive Chef

Aaron Gamble joined us here at the Vineyards in 2021 as our Sous-Chef and currently serves as our Executive Chef overseeing the Dietary Department. Originally from the Tri-City Richmond area of Virginia he discovered his passion for food through his Greek/ Italian family upbringing- primarily through his involvement with his church community. Although his personal affinity is for Greek/ Italian and Southern cuisine his professional focus for the past 10 years has been crafting food that appeals to the senior living community. He does this with a sense of pride and passion and enjoys developing connections with the residents through food and service.
