Denise Moore, Admissions and Marketing Director
I have always had a passion for seniors. I started my career as a caregiver and along my 14 years of senior living experience, it has brought me to become a senior lifestyle counselor, marketing director, sales director and executive director. I have worked as a counselor for a singular senior living community for approximately 12 years and have honed my talents to where sales & counseling warms my heart. I enjoy understanding the complications, fears and apprehension that goes into selecting a community for loved ones. My knowledge and experience have taken me down this road and I continue to thrive by helping seniors and their families feel secure and confident in their choice of a community. This is exactly why I am excited to be joining The Memory Center. I believe in this community and all that it has to offer our seniors with dementia. Being one of the few communities that specifically specializes in treating this disease, exclusively, it brings comfort to help guide loved ones to a more purposeful and meaningful life.
Lori Kerr, Director Of Nursing
Hello! My name is Lorri L. Kerr. I was born in Lansing, Michigan on February 12, 1965. I have three brothers and one (late) step-brother and one step step-sister, Mary. Having three brothers (Bob, Tom, and Chuck), I had to quickly adapt to playing “kick the can after dark, cars & trucks in the sandbox, and wearing boxing gloves with numerous rounds of “pretend boxing matches”.
I graduated from Everett High School in June 1983, with a graduating class of 560 students. I played and enjoyed being on the volleyball team
I joined the military when I was 21 years old. I served three years is the Army and was stationed at Ft Lewis, Washington for that entire enlistment. I enjoyed the great Northwest and Mt Ranier. After three years, I went home and joined the Michigan National Guard and became a sergeant as a Unit Clerk. I, then began attending college for Nursing on the GI Bill. In 2005, my National Guard unit was called for overseas duty and I spent one year in KuWait. Or, commonly referred to as the “Sandbox”. We were originally told it would it would be Afghanistan. We felt so fortunate that our final Orders stated, “KuWait”. I was assigned to work at the Troop Clinic. After returning home, I have officially retired from the military.
I was married 10 years and have one son, Phillip Wesley Stephens.
I moved to Georgia in June 2010 from Lansing, Michigan. Now, I feel like I have two places to call “home”—Michigan and Georgia.
I graduated from Nursing school in 2001, and have worked both in skilled nursing and assisted living. The majority of my last ten years has been in assisted living. However, recently have worked in a Covid unit.
Currently, I live in Oakwood, Georgia. I live close to my 78-year-old Mom and step-father, brother, son, and a cousin. Loving the Georgia weather…!
I am excited to join The Memory Center of Johns Creek and looking forward to a wonderful partnership—TOGETHER! ☺

Edward Kraitman, Chef
My name is Edward Kraitman. I am from Moldova and I have lived in the United States for over twenty years now, and worked as a culinary artist for over 30 years. I have a deep passion for creating food and serving it to people in ways that they enjoy. I focus on health in every meal and keep fried food off of my menu. There are no mistakes when creating a new dish and I love to experiment with every holiday. I love serving my residents and seeing their faces light up when their food arrives. I am happy when my residents are happy and always keep each individual’s needs in mind because each limitation is a new challenge that I am excited to tackle in the kitchen.
