Carol Fincher


My name is Carol Fincher and I am grateful to have spent the last 10 years as Executive Director of East Ridge Residence in Chattanooga, TN.

When I chose a career in senior living from the hospitality industry, I knew I made the perfect choice. I love the sense of family and community between residents and my East Ridge Residence team – the loving, caring spirit of our culture and community is an opportunity to make the day even more brighter for our residents.

Previously, I worked for the city of Chattanooga by developing a volunteer program for the Head Start organization, which helps disadvantaged or special needs children. When I am not serving our seniors, I love to take wildlife photography and spend time with my husband, children and grandchildren.

I’d love to show you how East Ridge Residence can be your new home and community, or a loved one’s. Please feel free to schedule a tour with us soon!
