Vice President of Health Care | PWheeler@VillageShalom.org
Paige joined the Village Shalom team in 2018. Her love for senior living started early on. While she was earning her bachelor’s degree in business administration, she held an internship that required her to work in every department of a continuing-care community. She would later serve as a director of social services while earning her master’s in gerontology. After that she was hooked.
She’s only left the field once – serving as an owner/operator of an insurance agency for a short time. She always knew senior living was her passion, so even when she was policy peddling, she stayed involved with the industry by serving on the boards for a number of aging agencies. Paige would eventually earn her nursing home administrator’s license and return to senior living to serve as an executive director for a CCRC before joining the Village Shalom team.
Paige and her husband, Gary, love their small-town life in Higginsville, Missouri. They have two college-aged sons, Lauden and Blaine. Team Wheeler is full of avid sports fans. Gary is a retired principal who once served as an athletic director, and the boys always stayed more than busy with sports while growing up. Paige loves a good game preceded by a good tailgate – especially for a Mizzou or Missouri State football game.
When she’s not on the sidelines, Paige loves to spend time outdoors working on her flowers, relaxing on the patio or enjoying a game of fetch with her granddog, Duke.
