From Key West to East Ridge
For Lauren Pazo, Community Outreach Marketing, joining the team at East Ridge at Cutler Bay felt like coming home.
Nestled in 76 lush acres, tucked away from the noise, traffic and hustle of Miami, East Ridge at Cutler Bay is a natural oasis for those looking for something different in senior living.
An inviting alternative to high-rise, apartment style living, East Ridge features expansive grounds dotted with pastel-hued, one-story villas and comfortable condos that exude a laid-back Key West lifestyle. Residents live connected to nature, surrounded by palm and fruit trees, beautiful flowers, and even a little wildlife.
This distinctive island feel is what brought Key West native Lauren Pazo to join the East Ridge team. A self-described “conch” born and raised, she instantly felt a connection to the community, saying, “I felt like I was home.”
A Natural Move
A health care marketing professional with experience working in both home health and hospice, Lauren joined East Ridge in September in the role of Community Outreach Marketing. “I’ve spent my career working in health care and with seniors. I wanted to explore new opportunities and new ways to serve them,” says Lauren. “In this role, I feel like I can help residents at East Ridge really enjoy life.”
She had just moved to the area from Key West when the position at East Ridge became available. “I was just drawn to East Ridge,” she says. “The feel of the community, the colors, the nature. I felt like I was back in Key West.”
