Throughout the following 27 years, she was promoted to Assisted Living Manager, Director of Assisted Living, and finally landed as the Memory Care Director at her previous community.

Proveer at Northgate | Heather Wightman

Heather Wightman, RN

Health and Wellness Director

Heather works alongside our amazing partners to provide the best possible care to our residents. Prior to becoming a nurse, Heather was fortunate enough to stay at home raising her three children. She graduated nursing school the same year that her oldest son graduated high school. She has always had a special place in her heart for the elderly and has devoted her nursing career solely to caring for them. Heather believes that any time she can connect with one of her residents, they are both equally rewarded.
