Vice Director of Sales
Ms. Barton is the Director of Sales for Discovery Senior Living and its affiliated entities. She is involved in all supervisory aspects related to training Senior Leasing Consultants in every community, with a primary focus on ensuring all sales policies and procedures are being followed properly. Her duties are far reaching, from assisting in the development of community relations marketing plans through seminars and other communication methods, to meeting or exceeding sales goals.
Ms. Barton has a solid background in sales having started her career in 2005 selling luxurious custom homes in Florida. She gained further valuable experience and sharpened her skills after spending several years in the general real estate industry working with a top-selling team at Keller Williams Realty in Tampa, Florida.
Soon realizing her true passion was assisting seniors in their daily journey of life, she joined Discovery Senior Living in 2010 as a Senior Lifestyle Counselor at Aston Gardens at Pelican Marsh in Naples, Florida. Less than two years later she was promoted to Director of Community Relations there, and then joined the corporate team in her current capacity in 2014.
She continues to be an active and integral part of the region as a member of organizations that include the Greater Naples Chamber of Commerce, the Bonita Springs Area Chamber of Commerce and the Young Professionals of Bonita Springs, where she is a member of its Board of Directors. She also volunteers with Make-A-Wish® Southern Florida, Alzheimer’s Support Network, Alzheimer’s Association and The Humane Society. Her passion for community involvement and her talent and commitment to serving seniors have been well received in furthering Discovery Senior Living’s reputation of excellence off campus.
She attended Argosy University and graduated first in her class with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Business Administration.
Ms. Barton has always been considered a leader among her peers and enjoys mentoring, making her an excellent fit as our Director of Sales. When she’s not at work helping to make Discovery Senior Living the top choice for senior living, you will find her fishing, boating or volunteering.
