Meet Our Director

Greetings, thank you for visiting the Lakeview at Josey Ranch website. My name is Gary Sanchez, and I am the Executive Director of Lakeview.

I grew up in the small community of Ruidoso, New Mexico. After college, I landed in El Paso, Texas. My wife Laura and I have five daughters and three granddaughters (no boys in the family!) Laura and I feel very fortunate to land in the Dallas area, and to be a part of the Lakeview community.

I have been working in the senior care industry for more than 10 years, and I would not have it any other way! My journey with the senior care industry started when I was a part of the El Paso Housing Authority. I then moved to Anchorage, Alaska with a different company, but the same position. Recently I had worked for another independent retirement community in Dallas, but finally, I have been fortunate enough to come to Lakeview at Josey Ranch.

There is so much to do here at Lakeview, like participating in our happy hours on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons. The happy hours have been a wonderful opportunity to meet and talk with many of our residents. It’s allowed us all to share stories and get to know one another. With that said, our building and the gorgeous view of Josey Lake with the swans and geese make for a beautiful community, but what really stands out here are the residents and our associates. They are always so welcoming and make everyone feel right at home. We have an incredible team of professionals, who treat our residents like members of their family.

The meals provided here also need a quick mention. They are all so delicious, that I am not sure I have just one favorite! Most of our residents seem to thoroughly enjoy our regular seafood meals, especially the shrimp.

Lakeview is also conveniently located in the beautiful town of Carrollton, where there is plenty to do and see. If you want to venture out a little, you have historical Grapevine to the west and Addison with its many upscale shops and restaurants to the east. Valley Ranch in Irving, current home of the world-famous Dallas Cowboys, is just a short 10 minutes south. Both the DFW and Love Field airports are also conveniently located south of Lakeview. If you want to stick around Carrollton, downtown is just a few minutes away, and has great restaurants and shops!

Thank you for visiting our website. Please take a few minutes to look through our resident photos, community events and services.
