    Lesley Bess
    "I have dedicated my life to making our center a place that not only provides excellent medical care and supervision, but also a home away from home for our members."
    Lesley Bess is the center director for the Grand Strand location of Active Day in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. A staff nurse at the center for over two years, she became the director in early 2003. Bess also served as the nurse administrator for Active Nursing Services, the home health division, for three years, providing personal care and skilled nursing in three counties.

    A native to the Myrtle Beach area, Bess received her registered nursing degree in 1998 from Horry-Georgetown Technical College and was a member of Phi Theta Kappa and National Dean's List Honor Society. Bess specialized in mental health nursing and human relations. She has continued her relationship with the local college by mentoring and hosting nursing students during their clinical rotations.

    Bess is a member of the Palmetto Guild Association and was recently named chairperson for the Alzheimer's Association Forget-Me-Not Ball 2010. She is also a member of the Senior Advocates Growing Elder Services (S.A.G.E.) group.
