Meet Leanne

My name is Leanne Schmitzer and I am proud to be Village Manager at Oak Tree Retirement Village Rutherford.

With 17 years experience in the retirement village industry, 7 years as a home care package manager and a total of over 24 years in aged care, it is a pleasure to be part of the next chapter in seniors’ lives seeing them spend their time relaxing and enjoying the fruits of their hard work.

Oak Tree creates small boutique villages with a sense of belonging ,where you can do as much or as little as you like from swimming or lounging by the pool, to outings, games, bbq’s, bowls and Friday happy hour all organised by the residents giving you control of what matters the most.

At Oak Tree I love the sense of homeliness you feel the minute you walk through the gate. I really enjoy the rapport built with residents, assisting them to live happy, secure and a low maintenance life. I so enjoy seeing the smile on their faces and the beautiful friendships formed.

I feel privileged to call the Hunter Valley home. It has such a diverse range of things to see and do from our beautiful surf beaches, whale watching, sand boarding on beautiful sand dunes, camel rides at Port Stephens to camping in amazing Barrington Tops Mountain where in winter it snows. All this just a stone’s throw of Oak Tree Rutherford.

Come in today, you won't be disappointed with what Oak Tree Rutherford has to Offer.

I look forward to meeting you soon.
