We are so excited to welcome Jessica Tate, M.S., CCC-SLP, to our team. Jess joins us from a clinical background that she will use to help families in Tampa. We are so grateful she is a part of our Sunways SuperHero Family. Learn more about Jessica below.

What’s your previous work experience?

I am a speech language pathologist with several years of experience working in medical settings such as, hospitals, skilled nursing, outpatient, and inpatient rehab with adults and seniors with communication and swallowing disorders. I am familiar with the continuum of care and have been heavily involved in providing recommendations during discharge planning after a hospitalization or rehabilitation admission.

Where did you grow up? How did you end up where you are?

I am originally from Maryland (I miss my blue crabs!). I moved to Florida in 2021 to be closer to my Dad and to live in such a beautiful and busy place where I never run out of things to do! I have met some incredible people living here.

What do you do for fun?

Making time for friends and family is extremely important to me. I love trying new restaurants. I also love being outside at the beach, on a boat, in a pool, or even on a bike ride. My main hobbies include working out (it keeps me sane!) and cooking…I’m always looking for fun new recipes to try!

What are you passionate about?

I am passionate about helping improve quality of life. As a speech language pathologist, I was able to accomplish that through diagnosis and treatment. With Sunways, I am looking forward to being available as a resource, advocating for seniors and their families, and developing personalized options during difficult times.

Any weird personality traits/ quirks?

I put hot sauce on almost everything I eat. The hotter the better! 

What’s your WHY? Why Sunways? Why Senior Care?

I have seen patients and families’ difficulties when planning for a future. There is no handbook for what to do, and often families have not been provided thorough information to make an easy decision. I would love to utilize my knowledge and clinical background within an area that is very much needed within the Florida communities and serve as a resource and advocate. I immediately knew Mark and Elli were genuine people whose mission and values aligned with mine.

Welcome, Jess! We are over the moon that you are on our team. Remember if you or your family needs help navigating the senior healthcare space, you know who to call!
