Judith Liechty, Business Office Manager
I came to Brentwood at Hobart in the fall of 2012 and brought with me over 20 years of experience in business and accounting. I have a Bachelor’s degree from Western Michigan University and have worked for large corporate offices and small private businesses. The last seven years were spent working at another Assisted Living Community. I love the interactions I have with our residents and am blessed every day to be a part of their lives.
When I’m not working, I enjoy my four wonderful children and all of their sporting and musical events. I also like to read, garden, and walk the dunes of Lake Michigan. I consider every day to be a gift and hope that I am able to impact and encourage everyone I encounter at Brentwood at Hobart.

Mary joined the Brentwood team in April of 2016 when she moved back home to Chesterton from Los Angeles, California. She says, “I’m excited to be part of Brentwood team. My residents and team mates have become my family. I’m honored to work in their home and be part of their life. There is no better way to bring people together than with FOOD!
