Assisted Living Locators CEO Angela Olea has been named the winner of a WOMAN WITH VISION award in the 2nd annual NAWBOPHX Women with Vision Awards.
The Women of Vision Award honors women executives, entrepreneurs, employees, and the businesses they run throughout the state. Their vision impacts economic development in the state and builds stronger communities. These women are trailblazers and are advocating to support the vitality of business ownership while working diligently to lead their organizations.
Winners will be celebrated during a virtual awards ceremony on Wednesday, March 10th, 2021. Registration for the ceremony is now on sale.
Founder of Assisted Living Locators, the nation’s first senior placement franchise, Angela Olea is an accomplished business leader in the senior care industry. A registered nurse, she initially launched Assisted Living Locators in response to seeing aging patients have unnecessary hospital readmissions and a lack of community support.
As Assisted Living Locators CEO, Olea has built the Arizona company into a nationwide senior placement and referral franchisor, with 140 franchise office locations in 36 states and the District of Columbia. Under Olea’s stewardship, Assisted Living Locators is setting the standard for care transition. Her company is also the first senior placement franchisor to achieve system certification in dementia care.
“It’s an honor to be included alongside these Phoenix women entrepreneurs and corporate leaders that are blazing trails in business and making an impact in our community,” said Olea. “I’m proud that through my company, we help seniors and their families find the right care option and peace of mind.”
Jean Briese, president of NAWBO Phoenix, said, “In a year like no other in our lifetimes, we are proud to recognize these phenomenal women, their vision, organizations, and achievements that are simply unparalleled.”
