Ms. Dressler began her career in 1990 in the Human Resources Department of Rogue Valley Manor, a PRS affiliate. In 1992, she embarked on her career in accounting and finance at PRS, serving first as Staff Accountant, a position she held until 1998, and then as Controller for Trinity Terrace, a PRS-affiliated Continuing Care Retirement Community in Fort Worth, Texas. After 2.5 years, she returned to PRS headquarters and has been moving steadily up the ranks since then. Among her previous positions were Internal Auditor and Assistant Controller.
“This promotion is a culmination of more than 20 years of working for Pacific Retirement Services,” says Sheri Dressler, “and it’s a nice feeling of accomplishment to move into this new position. The people I work with are wonderful—both the PRS employees and the residents of our communities. I enjoy helping the senior population and making their later years better. It is an important service that PRS performs: providing care in a way that is satisfying to seniors. I support PRS’s mission, and I respect its ability to meet the needs of seniors into the future.”
Ms. Dressler received a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration with an emphasis in Accounting from Southern Oregon University (SOU), and earned her Master’s degree in Business Administration (MBA) in June 2011, also from SOU. She is now well on her way to becoming a Certified Public Accountant. In her new position, Ms. Dressler will work with PRS Chief Financial Officer Mary Schoeggl to oversee accounting and finance for PRS’s 50 affiliated organizations in five states, with the support of an accounting team that totals 30 employees.
“Sheri has contributed greatly to the success of PRS over the years, and she is always such a pleasure to work with,” says CFO Mary Schoeggl. “Her knowledge, work ethic, and willingness to help others are unmatched. Sheri brings great value to our affiliates and clients, and we are so lucky to have her. We look forward to her continued leadership at PRS.”
