Mr. Heath comes to Seabury with more than 30 years of experience at the executive level in senior health and housing management and operations. He was President and CEO for 15 years at Gulf Coast Village Retirement Community, a not-for-profit CCRC in Cape Coral, Florida, and most recently served as Director of the Armed Forces Retirement Home in Gulfport, Mississippi. Mr. Heath received his undergraduate degree in history at The Ohio State University, and his Masters of Science with a concentration in Gerontology and Business Administration from the University of North Texas.
