Our Team

Executive Director Tamara White, LVN


Tamara was born and raised in Texas. She obtained her nursing degree in 2008 from Kingwood Community College and has always had a passion for working with seniors. Most of her nursing career has been in dialysis, where she was the preceptor, med nurse, and lead cannulator. Tamara is also cross trained in peritoneal dialysis.


After her grandmother passed away with dementia, it perked Tamara’s interest in memory care. In 2020, Tamara shifted her career to assisted living, serving as the Director of Resident Services at the Cottage of Chapel Creek in Frisco.


In her free time, she enjoys spending time with her two beautiful daughters, traveling the world, going to comedy shows, and attending stage plays. And don’t forget her first love, basketball!

Executive Chef Peter Kitler

Peter Kitler was born and raised in a small town in upstate New York. He was most influenced by his mother, who loved to cook, and he paid close attention in the kitchen. At seven years old, he made his very first meal, a seven-cheese lasagna. Early on, he knew it was his calling to be in the culinary industry.

As a chef, Peter has worked in a variety of different cuisines over the years, and acquired most of his experience and knowledge under the direction of CIA (Culinary Institute of America) graduate John W. Dwyer at the Lexington Grill in Colonie, New York.  

In 1997, Peter joined his family in the Dallas Metroplex, and was soon introduced to the field of business dining. This part of the industry allowed Peter to share his knowledge, creativity, and passion through innovative menu planning.  

Peter has been married to his wife, Joanna, since 2001. Together they have three children – Caden, Sydney, and Graylyn. When he is not in the kitchen, Peter enjoys attending church with his family every week, being a part-time ice hockey referee, and spending quality one-on-one time with each of his children. Other hobbies include golf, wood-working, home improvements, fishing and bowling.
