Meet Our Founders


Matt Staley
Co-Founder and CEO

About the Founder

Matt has been a physical therapist for 21 years working primarily with the geriatric population. Matt is a Geriatric Certified Specialist with a passion for helping people maintain their independent lifestyle. Through personal and professional experiences, Matt has seen firsthand the stress and anxiety that comes with having to make the difficult decision to place a loved one in an assisted living community.

As a physical therapist, his expertise was often sought out when having to decide which community would be the right fit. He has spent the majority of his professional career practicing in assisted living communities, and Matt has a unique advantage of knowing what each community has to offer regarding the needs of our clients. Clients and their families were always so grateful that Matt was able to help them navigate this difficult decision. That is when he decided to shift career focus to helping clients and their families find the living accommodations that best fits the needs of their loved ones.

Audrey Staley
Co-Founder and CMO/COO

About the Founder

Audrey serves as Transition Specialist in Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky markets. Audrey’s background is in occupational therapy and she has a passion for helping seniors maintain an independent lifestyle. One way of doing this is matching them with communities that can best meet their needs, not only in the present but in the future as well. When she was a treating therapist, Audrey worked with the geriatric population in both a skilled and home health setting.

She has treated patients in most of the assisted living communities locally and this gives her a unique perspective of where her clients will best be cared for. Placing a loved one into a community is stressful and can be confusing. Audrey takes pride in walking my clients throughout the entire process from start to finish. Clients know they can reach out to her and she is always available to help them with their questions.

Audrey shares, “I enjoy taking the guesswork out of placement and being there for clients eliminating their stress and making them feel comfortable.”

Meet Our Leadership Team


Lisa Williams
Transition Specialist

Lexington and Eastern Kentucky Region

About the Leader

With a degree in Business Administration and Sales & Marketing Lisa started her career in a skilled nursing home setting. She has worked with the geriatric population for over 27 years. While it was very rewarding to bring a patient into the facility and watch the patient get stronger every day by working with therapy and nursing towards their goals something was missing as everyone is not always safe to return home. It can be tough to have a conversation with a loved one who desperately wants their loved one home discuss what happens if the loved one cannot go home.

After 19 years of working in a skilled nursing home setting she decided to switch journeys on her career path. With Senior Living Locators not only does she get the opportunity to explain to families the different levels of care with senior retirement communities she works right beside the family to try and help determine “which” communities would be the best fit for them based on their care needs, geographical location and budget. We also factor in the following: are they a smoker, do they have pets, are they claustrophobic, or afraid of heights? She works directly with the patient and family so there is no confusion between what they want or need.

Lisa says, “I love what I do as it’s the best feeling knowing you have given a family all options available for their loved one. Once they move in I make it a priority to go visit them to see how they are doing on their new journey of life.”
