Asbury Place Maryville Leadership Team

David Wildgen
Executive Director, Asbury Place Maryville

David has more than 35 years of experience in aging services and health care, having held multiple senior leadership roles at other non-profit continuing care retirement communities across the country, as well as for communities and health providers in Maryville and Chattanooga. David, who is a licensed nursing home administrator, comes to Maryville after serving as Interim CEO for Florida Presbyterian Homes in Lakeland, Fla., for the past year. Previously, he was the Interim Executive Director for Hermitage on the Eastern Shore in Onancock, Va., where in his nearly three-year tenure he led the opening and certification of a new health care center, in addition to overseeing operations of the overall community.

“I am energized and inspired by being part of a team that seeks to carry out our mission to do all the good we can for those we serve each and every day. The energy and caring I see each day on our campuses, across all levels of living, reinforces the benefits of community living. The opening of our new household-inspired health care services ushers in a new phase of care that continues to prioritize the individual experience and preferences of each resident as they age across the full continuum here at Asbury Place.”

Deborah Paskel

“The culture of Asbury is one that creates and fosters a caring community for residents and associates. It is a privilege to serve the two stakeholder groups who form the foundation of this community and drive our Mission.”

Carla Rafferty

Rene Sharp
Administrator, Health Care Services, Asbury Place Maryville

“Being able to provide quality care in a comforting and comfortable environment is our goal each and every day. Our associates continually inspire and impress me with the health services they provide and also with the caring relationships I see them develop with the residents they serve.”
