We’re Ready to Help
We have a management team of specially trained professionals who handle every aspect of the Fox Run at Orchard Park community. Each department works hard to contribute its own special facet of care to our Community Members.
Fox Run is an architecturally stunning facility with state-of-the-art amenities, and a beautiful 54-acre campus to call home. However, what makes Fox Run shine is its Community Members! Fox Run Community Members embrace the attitude of Live Life and I witness this on a daily basis. Consistent with Fox Run’s Mission Statement ‘…an exceptional living option where seniors may age with grace and dignity,’ you have my word that I will see this through. As I previously mentioned, my door is always open; so please feel free to reach out to me.”

When asked what do you want to be when you grow up? Lisa shares, without fail, "my answer was always a Chef! From my earliest memories, my mother encouraged me to try a variety of activities and interests, but I always found my way back to cooking. Whether that was taking cooking classes, or even in dance class — cooking always seemed to slip into my other interests as well. For my big solo, I choose the song "I Can Cook Too" by Nancy Walker and even brought my kitchen set on stage with me.
Throughout my professional career, I have been very fortunate to have worked with such talented chefs, who gave me opportunities to grow and take on as much responsibility as I could handle. I have been able to work in different dining settings including serving hundreds of meals for an elaborate banquet, and making small intricate plates for a more intimate dining experience, helping me expand my repertoire of skills.
I am honored to work with very talented culinary professionals at Fox Run at Orchard Park who share my beliefs and passions. Our industry-leading culinary standards have raised the bar and set my team and me up to successfully serve delicious meals daily in a creative and innovative way.”
It’s clear Chef Lisa looks forward to taking on her new role as Director of Dining Services at Fox Run at Orchard Park and sharing her passion for food and her vast knowledge passed down from previous mentors.
Originally from Rochester, NY Lisa currently resides in Lancaster with her family. Outside of work she loves to travel and enjoys a nice dinner out. Though cooking is never too far from the forefront of her mind as she says “food is something that brings people together and creates memories. Being a chef is not just about creating great food, it’s about leadership, creativity, integrity, and teaching those around us to always strive for better — to be better and to make better food.”
I am grateful for the hardworking and dedicated members of my Maintenance and Housekeeping Teams, which are crucial in getting everything done! I have a sense of pride that we can handle anything that comes our way. Since we regularly work in the homes of Fox Run Community Members, it is imperative that we establish a foundation of trust with them. All of my team members work hard to develop personal relationships with each and every Community Member in the community. We truly make a difference in their lives, which is the most rewarding part of our job.
Outside of Fox Run, my wife and I are happily busy with the schedules of our three young children and our dog Luna. We are constantly on the move, but enjoy doing it all together. In the summertime, you will often find us at Taffy’s Hot Dog Stand—our favorite place to eat!"

For Gardner, coordinating all the services delivered to Community Members residing in Independent Living, and providing leadership to encourage positive interactions and well-being is a top priority. Allison’s focus is not only people living at Fox Run, but also employees working at Fox Run. “Fox Run at Orchard Park is a one-of-a-kind community filled with wonderful members and staff. Not a day goes by where I don’t feel fortunate in some way to work here and be part of such a special place.”
Gardner started her career at Fox Run in early 2013. After earning her Associate Degree in Dietetic Technology and Foodservice Administration in 2014, Gardner started working for Morrison Living, the international food service company that Fox Run has been partnered with since opening in 2007. While in that position, she continued her education and obtained her Bachelor Degree in Community and Human Services in 2018. Soon after, she was promoted to the Assistant Director of Dining Services until she took over as the Director of Resident Services.
Residing in her hometown of Orchard Park, outside of work Gardner enjoys spending time with her family and friends. Allison loves to cook and entertain. You may see her walking her two dogs in the village of Orchard Park, or on the ski slopes with her husband in Ellicottville, NY.
