Angela Johnson
Marketing Director

As the Marketing Director, I have the honor of guiding families and future residents as they begin their journey down the pathway of assisted living and memory care. Often, loved ones struggle with making a decision of this nature. I have the privilege of stepping in to help bridge the gap and make the process easier. Getting to unveil a new, exciting, and safe environment for a resident while providing the assurance that families need, knowing that their loved ones will be happy and secure in our community.

I have resided in Placer County since 2012. It’s an absolute joy to contribute to the community of Auburn by striving to provide optimal care and compassion to the residents and families of Oakwood Village. The staff and residents in our Oakwood Village family are second to none. I am thankful and honored to be working for and beside each one of them.
