Geraldine Skanes

Sales and Marketing Manager

Geraldine (Geri) originally hails from Newfoundland, moving to Ottawa nearly 35 years ago. After working in the retail industry for a couple of years, she began what would become a long relationship within the Retirement Industry working in all facets of the organization. She started as a health care aid, then moving into reception, and then relief work as a Retirement Counsellor, all at a facility in Nepean. Always interested in helping others, a move to Raleigh, North Carolina area in 1996 provided her the opportunity to volunteer as a fire fighter in the small community of Apex. She ran fire calls with other fire fighters and often provided first responder assistance to those needing help. If you ask her, she’ll show you the genuine fire fighter’s helmet she received as a memento from her fellow fire fighters before returning to Canada in 1999.

It wasn’t long before she was back in the retirement industry again in the Ottawa area, taking on a Sales and Marketing position as well as a General Manager position. Today, Geri is back in Sales and Marketing here at Park Place and looks forward to getting to know you all. Her passions include cycling, running and knitting for her family and friends.
