The Williston is a joint venture between Porchlight Developments and Marwest Management.
Porchlight makes homes where people come first. We care deeply about every step in the journey homewards; whether building homes as a developer, or building relationships with our customers, trade and community partners. Porchlight runs on a spirit of kindness and appreciation fueled by the energy, discipline, and integrity to always make it right.
I’m Deb Brown the Executive Director for the luxurious adult living community ‘The Williston’. I will be managing the day to day operations, assisting residents and building a healthy and safe community for staff and residents to enjoy.
My expertise is community development and I specialize in healthy and safe adult living. I bring work experience supported by academic accomplishments in Business Management, Public Speaking and residential management to The Williston community and proudly share these learnings with those I work with.
My personal interest in preparing for my retirement is what inspired me to pursue a career in Adult living accommodations. During my research, it became clear to me that to select suitable housing I needed to find someone to assist me that was like minded and understood my needs. I truly enjoy my work. Each day I look forward to spending time supporting others in finding just the right home. It is mandatory that my staff feel the same way. We are a team working together to make a difference in the lives of the people that choose to make The Williston their home.
As the proud mother of three adult children and 7 beautiful grandchildren I am looking forward to spending quality time with them. I grew up in the rural community of Bladworth and have spent most of my working career in Saskatchewan in communities in and around Regina.
Curling is the name of my game! I’m an avid curler. I started curling at 15 and enjoy the sport to this day.
I am motivated by my public speaking experience and always welcome an invitation to speak to organizations about community development, adult living opportunities, rural issues and my favourite is Women in Leadership roles.
All kinds of music brighten my day but somehow, I always end with a country song on a stressful day. There is something relaxing possibly comforting to country music.
My thirst for new experiences has taken me on many adventures across this amazing country we call North America and I’ve dabbled a little internationally.
That is me in a snapshot, literally, my life is a Polaroid moment in time. My slogan is ‘Life is a journey, embrace it’ and that is how I view every day!!!
