Ivonne Meader


Ivonne completed her undergraduate degree at Universidad CESA in Bogota,

Colombia and then moved to the United States to do an MBA in International

Management at the University of St. Thomas, Minnesota. She worked in the

corporate world as International Marketing Manager for Mattel toys, Marketing

Director for Sony, and Brand Manager for Samsung to name a few. Then her

calling came to be part of the elder care world. Ivonne was immediately

attracted to doing something she was passionate about and started a new

chapter in her life. Now, she continues to serve the elderly by improving the

lives of her residents.

Ivonne Meader is the owner and administrator of Mom & Dad’s House with

Premier Senior Living Facilities in Lakewood and Long Beach California. Her

passion is to create senior homes that go far beyond just “room and board”.

Harnessing her corporate experience, Ivonne found that the eldercare

business lacked processes and procedures. After not finding a suitable option

to professionalize her business and services, she and her husband Matt

decided to develop Caring Data, LLC., a communication and documentation

program for the RCFE and ARF industry.
