Michele Biggart, Director of Sales
Fountaingate Gardens is a new Life Plan Community envisioned by the Gurwin Health Care System located in Commack. We are excited to be breaking ground on this Independent Living Community by the end of 2020!
About Michele Biggart
Michele Biggart is the Director of Sales at Fountaingate Gardens, a new Life Plan Community envisioned by the Gurwin Health Care System located in Commack. In this position, she guides active adults in making the right choice in senior living and lectures frequently on timely topics impacting the aging population. Prior to this position, she spent 10 years as the Director of Business and Community Development for Burner Law Group, P.C., a boutique law firm serving clients in all matters of Estate Planning, Trust and Estate Administration, Guardianship, and Special Needs Planning. Michele received her undergraduate degree from St. Joseph’s College and her Master of Arts in Public Policy and Administration from Stony Brook University. Michele has been a Certified Geriatric Care Manager through the University of Florida since 2013.
In 2011, Michele returned to her alma mater of St. Joseph’s College as an Adjunct Professor in the Department of Political Science where she created the first internship course allowing students to experience the political process in real time.
Michele has worked very closely with the community in events to support those diagnosed with dementia or Alzheimer’s Disease and those who care for them. She was instrumental in co-creating the East End Walk for Alzheimer’s Disease in Westhampton Beach and, inspired by the supporters of the walk and lack of community resources, she became a facilitator of a support group on the East End for caregivers taking care of a loved one living with cognitive impairments. The group continues to meet today.
Michele is the recipient of the Day Haven Neighborhood of Caring Award for her work in the community with the Alzheimer’s population and a member of multiple geriatric professional groups that support an aging population. In 2019, she was named as “Top 30 Under 30” by Long Island Business News. She lives in Setauket with her husband and two children.
Marketing and selling in the healthcare and senior housing industry is challenging, and requires both sales expertise and compassion. You need someone who has walked the walk, and understands this very specific industry. I will review your practices, help you create an effective turn-around plan, and work with your team to train them in the best practices in effectively selling and marketing this specific industry. I will turn the most timid into a sales and marketing “Rockstar”!
Business Development is an important part of this turn-around process and is all about the relationships you form and nurture. In this ever-changing industry, it’s difficult to keep track of where and who the influencers are. Whether you are the owner of a new or struggling senior living community or a health care service provider, I can help get your brand where it needs to be. I will work with you to create a business development plan and then accompany you on marketing outreach calls, teaching you effective relationship building techniques along the way so that you learn how to effectively market your business and create mutually beneficial referral relationships.
