My name is Tarnya Mayes and I am proud to be the Village Manager at Oak Tree Retirement Village Park Avenue.
Central Queensland has been my home of choice for 14 years. I’m a family orientated person and moved my husband and two children here to be closer to my Grandmother and my Mother. My children are growing up knowing and respecting their grandparents which is extremely important to me.
I previously worked in the nursing industry for 13 years prior to commencing with Oak Tree Retirement Villages in 2009. This experience gave me great empathy for people and I learnt the value of human interaction and the need to be heard. I carry this with me in all aspects of my life and in my job at Oak Tree. I have had the pleasure of watching and nurturing a village from commencement right through to being at full capacity and have gained a wealth of knowledge along the way.
I enjoy every facet of my job. When someone first visits the village, I love to show them what a wonderful place Oak Tree is. I take pride in helping a person move through the process of enquiry right through to becoming a resident and welcoming them into our extended family here at Oak Tree.
Oak Tree Park Avenue has recently undergone a refurbishment in the Community Centre and the village facilities are looking at their best.
Why not pop by for a look around, meet some of our residents and picture yourself living at Oak Tree. I would also be happy to show you around our wonderful sister villages in Yeppoon.
