Stacy Blocker
I have lived in Dexter pretty much my whole life.  I earned my Bachelor of Science in Nursing from  Southeast Missouri State University.  I have worked at Central Gardens as a nurse aide while in nursing school, Director of Nursing for four years and been the Administrator for over 7 years.  I am married with three children.  You can see me at just about every Dexter Bearcat sporting event.  I bring my Cocker spaniel, Alvin to work with me every day and my residents love him.  I enjoy scrapbooking, photography, reading and volleyball.  I am very active in the community and enjoy living in Dexter.  I truly love my job at Central Gardens and feel very blessed to be here working with my elderly residents!

I have been at Central Gardens since February 2008. 
I previously worked in home health for five years before coming to Central Gardens.  My maiden name was Tanner.  I married John in 1998 and we have one daughter and one son.  I am very involved with my two children and their various activities.  I enjoy reading and going on vacation.



Jackie Anderson
I've been with Central Gardens' for ten years.  I like all our activities but I take pleasure in talking and visiting with our residents when we go for walks outside.  I have been married for 22 years and have a teenage daughter and a frisky kitty.  I am a member of the First Assembly of God church. I enjoy shopping, scrapbooking, and hanging out with my family and friends.

Robin Stanfield
I've been with Central Gardens since 2005.  I retired from the Navy as an IT Chief Petty Officer.  I moved to Dexter in 2004 because my husband said it was an exotic place to live.  He tricked me so he could be closer to his family in Bernie.  I love the residents and staff of Central Gardens and their interesting life stories.  I love my animals and enjoy all type of crafts.
