September 3, 2021

LifeSpire of Virginia recently named Adam Feldbauer as Executive Director for The Summit, a Life Plan community in Lynchburg, VA. In this role, Feldbauer will be responsible for managing the day-to-day operations for The Summit’s independent and assisted living communities. Feldbauer will officially start at The Summit on October 1, 2021.

Feldbauer has more than 10 years of experience serving senior living and healthcare organizations. He became a Virginia licensed nursing home administrator in 2014.   

Prior to joining the LifeSpire team, Adam served as president and chief executive officer of Martha Jefferson House in Charlottesville. Prior to Martha Jefferson house, he worked for Sodexo as a department head at Westminster Canterbury Lynchburg. Feldbauer holds a bachelor’s degree in public health, healthcare administration from Indiana University and is currently working on a master’s degree in gerontology, management of aging services from the University of Massachusetts Boston.  

Feldbauer is an avid outdoorsman and enjoys spending time exploring the Blue Ridge Mountains with his family. Adam's wife Kim is originally from Lynchburg, and her extended family remains there. With two young children, they welcome the opportunity to relocate back to Lynchburg to be closer to grandparents and family. 

“We are very excited to welcome Adam to the LifeSpire team. His extensive background in senior living and experience as a nursing home administrator uniquely qualifies him to lead the operations at The Summit as LifeSpire assumes ownership of the community from Centra,” said Jonathan Cook, LifeSpire’s president and CEO.
