The Woodlands enthusiastically welcomes our new Wellness Manager, Rebecca Goff. Rebecca offers and coordinates a range of Wellness activities to residents of The Woodlands and welcomes incoming residents, facilitating their transition into The Woodlands’ community. “I’ve always loved working with people, but I especially enjoy the population just ahead of me in years for their wisdom, work ethic, and interest in spending time with others (rather than their electronic devices)!

I’m very grateful for how welcome they’ve all made me feel.” Rebecca brings a varied background, from working in hotel management, to running her own business helping elders down-size, to working as an LNA at DHMC.
