Garrett Slemmons Executive Director
After spending most of our lives in Chicago, my wife and I decided we were tired of the cold and it was time for a change. After taking a few months to get used to the “slow” pace we could not be happier with our new home and the warm weather. We recently welcomed our third child and they definitely keep us on our toes!
I spent the first 10 years of my professional career working at a non-profit school serving children and adults on the autism spectrum in the Chicago land area. I started as a teacher and had the good fortune to work in various aspects of the organization, eventually becoming VP of Community Relations. In working with the autism population, I have seen how truly gifted these individuals are and the amazing achievements they can accomplish given an opportunity, support, and some creativity. I believe that all people are entitled to respect, dignity, and a chance to live their life to the fullest extent possible.
I joined the Oaks in 2018 and have been truly in awe of the residents we serve. The warmth, love, and compassion I feel daily from the family of residents here is amazing! I look forward to coming to work each day and being a part of this vibrant, growing community.
In my free time, you can find me; pushing a stroller, hanging out at the beach, reading with the kids, on the golf course, or watching my beloved Chicago Cubs.
