Meet the team at our community in Westminster, CO.

Executive leadership embraces our strong values.

Linda Perez
Executive Director

Linda began working in senior living in 2004 following a career in higher education.  In reflecting on both careers, Linda has found it rewarding to work with individuals and families during times of meaningful transition.  Working with adults spanning from eighteen to 100 years of age, she is touched by and appreciates the life-long journeys of growth and experience that God unfolds for each person.  Linda desires to come along side people to provide support during times of change and, through that support, bring peace of mind.  She finds working in senior living particularly enjoyable because it is a setting where staff and residents alike appreciate each other.  Linda has worked on several senior living campuses within and outside of Covenant Living and was thrilled to join the team at Covenant Living of Colorado in 2018.
