Rodney McKee

Executive Director

For Rodney, his mantra is putting residents at the center of our universe, and doing all we can to fulfill our hospitality promises to them will determine how successful we are at The Bayshore, who manages a talented department head team at the community.

Rodney has worked in senior living for almost 20 years, in many different communities of shape and size including independent living, assisted living, and memory care. He brings a variety of experience with him from frontline service to operations management—in several different departments such as Culinary, Housekeeping, and Administration. He has served in different roles like Director of Housekeeping for a retirement community, Business Office Director and Executive Director now for the last several years —giving him extensive knowledge and experience.

For Rodney, learning each resident’s story and having the honor of caring for them makes his duties at The Bayshore such a rewarding career

Pauline Giron

Director of Marketing & Sales

When Pauline Giron assumed her new position, she already knew she would be working in a very special community—because she had served as director of community relations for The Bayshore since its opening. It was a natural move for Pauline, whose 20 years of experience in senior living encompass community relations, sales and operations, including a position as a licensed residential care facility administrator. Now, as well as handling accounting, finances and human resource for The Bayshore, Pauline remains a trusted resource of information and guidance for those families she assisted at move-in.

“Seeing how delighted they are now that they see the reality of all that The Bayshore offers is so fulfilling,” she say. “It really is like being on vacation every day. The Bayshore is a wonderful choice.”
Pauline’s well-rounded perspective in several aspects of senior living serves her well. “I use my extensive experience in creating and maintaining relationships with physicians, nursing homes, hospitals, homecare agencies and case managers to bring the best resources to the families we serve.”

Melissa Hallbeck

Community Relations Counselor

All of Melissa Hallbeck’s previous work roles, whether it be in a continuing care retirement community, skilled nursing or non- profit, has helped her set the stage for her current role as Community Relations Counselor at the Bayshore. Melissa’s work experience in social work, sales, marketing, community relations, public speaking, and fund raising make it a perfect fit for her. Living in the Hilton Head area for many years, Melissa has developed many professional relationships and is a respected member of the community.

“I tell residents and family members all the time that not only is Bayshore an amazing place to live, but an amazing place to work as well.” Melissa’s enthusiasm for the Bayshore is contagious. “My background in social work has really helped me here because listening is really the key to being able to sell well and meet the needs of the residents all at the same time. I feel really lucky - I have always either worked in healthcare helping people or in animal rescue helping animals.”

When she isn’t showing the Bayshore or working with potential residents, Melissa loves being with her husband, Rob, and their animal rescues. There is never a dull moment in the Hallbeck home!
