Nina Wendelschafer has dedicated over 10+ years of her life to serving the needs of seniors and enriching their lives along the way. Nina began her career as a Certified Nursing Assistant (CAN) in a skilled nursing facility. Shortly after that, Nina discovered her love of working in assisted living.

With a desire to work closer to home, while raising two children, Nina began working at Spring Meadows Assisted Living in 2009. Starting as a caregiver, Nina worked her way up to Medication Aid and then as Resident Care Coordinator. Eager to continue learning and growing in her role, Nina went on to earn her Administrator's License and became Director of Spring Meadows.

Nina says, "Spring Meadows has been my second home for many years and I am completely invested in this community and our residents. I will strive every day to enrich the lives of our residents and make Spring Meadows a great place to call home."



Assistant Director

Tiffany Padula began working in the healthcare field in 2008, right after she had her first child. She started her career in healthcare as an In-Home Caregiver for the State of California. Growing up, Tiffany always aspired to be a nurse and thought in-home care would be a great start. She quickly fell in love with taking care of others, especially the elderly community.

Tiffany joined the Spring Meadows team in March of 2017, as a Care Partner, and then worked her way up to Medication Aid, Resident Care Coordinator and now Assistant Director. Tiffany absolutely loves working at Spring Meadows and feels so connected to the community and residents. Tiffany hopes to excel in her new role, at a community she already knows and loves so much.
