Fields will help launch the new facility, which will offer quality care, hope and peace of mind to 47 Northern Virginia seniors and loved ones who are facing dementia and other memory loss illnesses.
 
Fields, who previously helped to open three innovative senior living communities in Herndon, Va., and Bethesda, Md., brings 15 years of professional senior living experience to Renaissance of Annandale. In that time, she served in various leadership roles, including senior living counsellor, business development manager and marketing director.
 
She organized the Western Fairfax Advocates for Seniors Network, an association created to help senior living professionals in northern Virginia. Additionally, she has served a number of community organizations for 20 years as a volunteer, including the American Cancer Society, American Lung Association and the Alzheimer’s Association.
 
“I’m so grateful to have someone like Sandra Fields on the Renaissance of Annandale team. Her wealth of senior living expertise, her compassionate heart, and her inherent ability to communicate and empathize with families, care managers and social workers are the perfect fit for our Renaissance of Annandale community,” Pam Phillips, executive director of Renaissance of Annandale, said.
 
“I do what I do because I feel it’s important to invest in people, especially our seniors. I want them to know we care, that we are listening and that there is hope even in the middle of a great challenge,” Fields said.
 

Fields grew up in a military family in California, but travelled to many countries with her father, who served as an officer in the U.S. Army Special Forces. Those experiences gave her an appreciation and respect for people of all cultures, she said. Fields earned a bachelor’s degree in history education at Jackson State University.

She is proud of Camille and Alex, two nieces she helped raise who now enjoy careers of their own. Fields lives in Renton, Va., where she enjoys making “over-the-top baskets,” gardening and good dinners with family and friends. More than anything, she believes in the power of God and His mercy, she said.
