Meet the Staff at Oaks at Oakland Plantation

Marlene Godwin Executive Director
I am very thankful for the opportunity to serve our seniors. I grew up the youngest of 3 children taking care of an elder with a disability. I knew at a young age I wanted to be a nurse and work with elders. After nursing school, I worked in med surge and critical care at Tift Regional Hospital. After 5 years I worked as a hospital Dialysis nurse and was recruited as a Departmental Nurse Manager. After 10 years was offered a position as an Executive Director in an assisted living. During these 15 years I met many seniors and family that I loved dearly. My husband and I relocated to Savannah and I worked with Department of Community Health. We soon returned to Southwest Ga. and I entered back into assisted living. I am happy to be the Executive Director of Oaks at Oakland Plantation and look forward to making a difference in the lives of those we serve.
