A Familiar Face in a New Role

We have such incredible talent within our Northbridge Communities, so it is such a treat to see our employees grow in their roles and beyond.

Erin has a strong background in healthcare, earning a BFA from UMass Dartmouth, her LPN from Diman School of Practical Nursing, and her MBA Healthcare Administration from the University of Phoenix. We are excited to announce that Erin Fitzgerald is now the Executive Director of Autumn Glen at Dartmouth, where she was previously the Marketing Director for 4 years.

Erin began her career in assisted living as a staff nurse, then becoming a Resident Service Director. Erin changed jobs to work for Caretenders VNA as a Clinical Nurse Liaison, which led her to finding Autumn Glen. Erin says she “immediately fell in love with the feeling at Autumn Glen and the company philosophy.” Erin found it very rewarding to spend time with families, and really get to know their loved one and the concerns each individual family has. She calls it her ‘ah ha’ moment when she sees a resident move into Autumn Glen and thrive – and especially rewarding is seeing the thankful and relieved expressions on families’ faces when their loved one is doing well.

Erin is mother to two beautiful girls, Alana who is 17 and Gwenyth who is 12. You can often see Gwen around Autumn Glen either performing dances and acrobatic tricks or participating in activities with the residents. When Erin rarely finds some free time, she loves going to concerts and is currently learning to ride a motorcycle!

Mark Barwise, the previous Executive Director of Autumn Glen is taking on a larger role with the Northbridge Companies, and has been promoted to Regional Director of Operations and oversees four Northbridge Communities.

As Erin begins this new chapter, she is excited to welcome Melinda Silva into the role of Marketing Director, and Erin will be a valuable resource to Melinda as she becomes acquainted to the Autumn Glen community.

If you or someone you know could benefit from the wonderful way of life at Autumn Glen, feel free to contact Erin anytime at 508.992.8880 or email her at erin@autumnglenatdartmouth.com
