Anthony Fleming – Director of Sales and Marketing
Anthony joins our team with over 17 years of service within senior living and long term care. Originally from Arkansas, Anthony moved to Tulsa 13 years ago to pursue his career in long term care administration. To know Anthony is to know his passion for delivering quality service for seniors and his heart for those affected by Alzheimer’s and dementia.
He is a Certified Dementia Practitioner, Alzheimer’s support group facilitator, and a licensed assisted living administrator since 2011. “It occurred to me several years ago I was on the path I was meant to lead — my personality aligned with my purpose and that’s a pretty magical thing. I wake up every day blessed to serve in my capacity,” says Fleming.
Anthony still makes time to visit his family in Arkansas and enjoys time outdoors, in the mountains, and travels any chance he gets. He is an avid distance runner, loves staying active, and spending time with his four French bulldogs (Queenie, Jiggy, Maddie, & Peabo).
