The team at Pear Valley Senior Living

Our Team

We have a great team at Pear Valley Senior Living. Check back soon to get to know them and come meet them in person.

Matt Tartaglio - Campus Administrator

Matt’s career has spanned 20+ years in the Multi-family Real Estate industry in Southern California, building his own business for four years before moving to Southern Oregon.  After moving to Eagle Point in 2013 with his family, Matt owned a couple of businesses before getting into senior living.  Matt first began as a Marketing Director, then as an Administrator for an assisted living and independent community for two years before coming to Pear Valley.  Matt is excited to build the team and move Pear Valley’s first residents into the community as the Campus Administrator.  In Matt’s free time, he enjoys rafting, hiking and just spending good quality time with his daughters and wife.

Jaimie Griffin - Community Relations Director

Jaimie has a vast background in Healthcare Marketing and Community Outreach. Prior to joining the team at Pear Valley, she was the Marketing Director for a nationally ranked Orthopedic Group in Seattle, Washington. 

Jaimie is excited to join the field of senior living and has always had a passion for helping others. She moved to Medford, Oregon in May of 2018 with her husband, daughter, and 2 dogs and loves all of the beauty that Southern Oregon has to offer. In her spare time, she enjoys being active and spending time outdoors with her family. They love camping, hiking, golfing, disc golf, frisbee, and watching football (Go Seahawks!). She also is an active volunteer with the American Cancer Society and Arthritis Foundation.

Nicole Cruz - Memory Care Administrator 

Nicole Cruz is a long time Eagle Point resident. She grew up watching her mom work in nursing homes and assisted living communities. From a young age, she has had a passion for serving her elders. Nicole has been within the healthcare community since 2006. Nicole began her journey working with adults with traumatic brain injuries, moved into adult foster care, then assisted living before spreading her wings in memory care. Nicole has worked hard along the way from care staff to health care coordinator before becoming an administrator.  Nicole believes in seeing the good in all people.
When Nicole is not working she is with her son on their farm doing everything from raising cattle and pigs to riding horses, Nicole enjoys being out in nature any chance she gets.


Pam Reed - Assistant Administrator

Pam joined the Pear Valley team with 18 years of experience in the healthcare industry. Her career began with an education in nursing while working as a C.N.A. in skilled nursing and cardiac care. She enjoyed getting to know everyone for whom she cared. However, Pam was never able to develop more than a short-term rapport in those environments. At that time, she became familiar with the assisted living setting and found her passion which has led her to her new path in administration. Pam has worked in healthcare administration since 2010. 

Pam is a third generation southern Oregonian and enjoys spending any time she can outdoors. She and her family enjoy camping, hunting, spending time with her dogs, gardening, and just taking in the great outdoors with her husband, Bruce. Pam is looking forward to working with all the Pear Valley team.
