Meet Our Team
The Blake at Biloxi is proud to have Hollie Notter as our Executive Director. Hollie began her career in the hospitality industry and worked her way up quickly into management. Her heart then led her to an executive director position in an assisted living in Louisiana. She has now found her way back home to the Mississippi Gulf Coast and could not be happier. When speaking of her current position she says, “I feel like we are the lucky ones to be such a huge part of so many families’ lives. It brings me such happiness to see our residents living their best life and it is so rewarding to give their families the comfort of knowing they are just as loved and cared for with us as they would be if they were with them.”
When asked about her favorite part of working for The Blake, she said, “we truly care about the happiness and wellbeing of not only our residents, but our entire staff. Our core values mean a lot to us and are practiced daily by everyone.” When she’s not at the community, you can find Hollie spending time with her family, going to the beach, and taking day trips to the French Quarter in New Orleans.
