Jessica White, Director ~ The Village at Sugar Land

Jessica White, Director ~ The Village at Sugar Land

Jessica’s grandparents were instrumental in her decision to make senior living her life’s work. Her late maternal grandfather was a Baptist minister of 50 plus years that taught her the value of Christ-like compassion, commitment, and strong faith. Both of her grandmothers were master bakers and natural caregivers that nurtured their large families and taught her the importance of caring for others. As a young girl in elementary school she made the decision to become a nurse. After working in several different areas of nursing after graduation Jessica found her ultimate purpose and passion in senior living when a Director of Nursing requested her to work in her senior living community. Jessica loved everything about caring for seniors and felt she had found her calling. Today she lives in the Cypress Fairfield area with her family. She is an avid gardener, baker, and loves watching classic romance movies as well as Dallas Cowboys football in her free time! Her favorite quote is: "The only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven't found it yet, keep looking. Don't settle." -Steve Jobs

Ana Trochez – Marketing Director

Ana Trochez – Marketing Director

Ana Trochez is the Marketing Director at The Village at Sugar Land.  She joined The Village at Sugar Land in January 2022. Spending her summers with her grandmother is one of her fondest memories. Her grandmother became the framework that helped develop and shape the person Ana is today. Her passion for senior care and helping others stems from her grandmother's example of loving others as God loves us and always putting others before herself. Knowing her calling was to help others, she enrolled in a psychology program after high school. In the early 2000's she worked as a sales manager at a prestigious diamond store. Helping people celebrate life's special moments and assisting them in commemorating those milestones was a rewarding career for her. Still, she always felt that her purpose was to help those less fortunate. So, in 2010 began working at a not-for-profit organization that provides behavioral healthcare and developmental disabilities services. She played a vital role on the interdisciplinary care team across the continuum of care and provided her clients with the support and resources detrimental to achieving positive clinical outcomes.  Ana credits her success as a marketing director to the ability to embrace a process that focuses on relationship building. She knows that compassion, transparency, empathy, and building a trusting relationship are key to a successful marketing career. As a mother of a special needs child, her journey is similar to the one her clients are on today. Therefore, she applies the golden rule to every interaction she has. One of her favorite quotes is, "One who looks outside dreams; one who looks inside awakes. “Carl Jung
