Megan Johnson: Senior Executive Director
I moved to Hayward in the summer of 2015 after completing my Associates degree in Business Management and started with Aspen Acres in November. In March of 2018, I accepted the Administrator position. In 2022, received my Dementia Care Pathway Certificate. At the end of 2022, I accepted a position within the company to have oversight of a handful of facilities. My husband and I enjoy spending time with our chocolate lab and our two daughters. We enjoy anything outdoors especially camping, fishing, dirt track racing and getting dirty.

    I was raised in Sheboygan County. My fiance and our two daughters recently moved to the area, but I have traveled up to the Hayward area most of my life. I have an extensive background in Dementia and Alzheimer’s Disease training along with human resources, staff management, and nurse scheduling. I have been blessed to accept the Assistant Administrator position while in the transition of moving. I’m excited to share my knowledge with the Hayward community and surrounding areas!
