Heather Anguiano, LPN
Director of Health Services

I was born in Michigan and moved to Central Florida at the age of 12. I settled in Ocala in 2002 and began my nursing career in 2003. I graduated from Central Florida Community College (now known as College of Central Florida) with honors. In the years that followed, I have worked in hospitals, skilled nursing facilities, doctors’ offices, home health, and, most recently, assisted living.

I became a part of the Paddock Ridge team prior to the time our first resident moved in. I have felt like an integral part of the community and enjoyed watching it grow. I assisted the former Director of Health Services and began to learn what the job entails. Working directly with the residents and staff has allowed me to build meaningful relationships with them. I am proud of the nursing department that has been assembled and look forward to seeing what the future holds. I plan to ensure our residents receive the best care possible and hope I have found my “forever work home.”

Janet Wyman
Business Office Director

I began working in the senior living care business as a receptionist at a local assisted living community. I was soon promoted to business office director and then to executive director. I’ve spent over 20 years doing something I love. Establishing relationships and enhancing the lives of those in your care is a very humbling and rewarding experience.

I’m excited to have joined the Paddock Ridge team as business office director. Along with our staff and management team, I look forward to providing quality care and services to the residents and families we have the privilege of serving.

Don Wood
Community Liaison

I’ve been employed in assisted living communities for over 15 years, working to keep our residents safe and happy. I have 40-plus years’ experience in construction and maintenance, including having worked with reputable assisted living companies as the senior maintenance director overseeing their Florida portfolios. I’m a family man and love camping and boating. I treat all our residents as family. The true reward of caring for our residents is in the heart.

David Culbreth
Dining Services Director

My name is David Culbreth, I am a native Floridian, born and raised in St. Petersburg and am coming back for my second stint to Ocala and could not be happier about it. I lived here many years ago and was on the opening team for a restaurant downtown on the square.

I have been in the food and beverage industry for 30 years. I have worked in restaurants and hotels all over the southeast. I have been blessed to work in some amazing places with some amazing people. I look forward to bringing my years of food and beverage, as well as management experience, to Paddock Ridge. I am excited about the opportunity to work with this team and do all I can to make the daily lives of our residents better. I am passionate about food and am committed to providing superior food with unparalleled service.

When I am not working, I still love to cook, play with my dogs and spend as much time on the water as I can boating or fishing.

“The staff really takes care of us in a personal way.”
