Vibrant Life® Director
Her favorite part about Solstice is being able to work and care for the seniors, calling it a true honor. She says, “Our seniors have given so much and have made it possible for us to enjoy the life we are living now. Being able to support our seniors in finding what brings them each purpose, passion, meaning and joy in their daily lives is honestly the best job one can ever have.”
A fun fact about Christina is that she helped put out fires around the community she previously worked at. She used a small garbage bin to help keep the flames from overtaking a building on fire.
Culinary Services Director
Alexandria Harris was born and raised in Sonoma County; but her passion for cooking started in her great-grandmother’s kitchen in Louisiana, where she helped create delicious Cajun meals.
While going to school in Sacramento at the Art Institute for her culinary degree, Alexandria worked at the Farmhouse Inn Restaurant, a Michelin star-ranked restaurant, throughout college. After graduation, she worked at the Fountaingrove Lodge in Santa Rosa, receiving her initial senior living experience.
She assisted with opening a new American restaurant in Petaluma called the Drawing Board while working at Davis Estates. She took some time off to raise her daughter, but then returned to work at Varenna.
She is thrilled about the opportunity to serve as the Culinary Services director at Solstice at Santa Rosa.
