Jodi - Senior Living Marketing Consultant at accompany

Signature strengths

Jodi Flanagan

Jodi has transformed years of experience within North America’s leading senior living providers; Specialty Care (Sienna Senior Living), Extendicare, Sunrise Assisted Living and Diversicare (Verve Senior Living) into a successful consulting practice.
Starting in 2011, Jodi stepped out of the corporate executive realm to pursue new horizons as an independent consultant and happy mom.

The journey has been rewarding and exciting.

Her expertise spans all aspects of sales, marketing, occupancy success, business development and communications while being firmly entrenched in the senior living industry. Jodi has orchestrated dozens of successful advertising campaigns, opened 17 (and counting) new homes, trained hundreds of people on how to effectively work with seniors and written multiple versions of sales, occupancy performance and marketing manuals.

The journey of a new project from understanding the market feasibility and competition, to proforma pricing, suite breakdown, architectural program design and onto home opening is a niche that takes a top shelf position for Jodi’s talents.

“I’m proud of the work that has been done with fantastic clients such as The Shores of Port Credit, Markham Stouffville Hospital Foundation, Primacare, Verve Senior Living and Global Architect.”

Jill Voytek

Jill owns the Secret Guest Shop process within the accompany team and leans in with all new home openings to manage and coach selling and communicating with seniors.
