Barbara TancrediBarbara Tancredi Manages San Clemente Villas by the Sea Group Activities

Barbara started her education at Saddleback College where she majored in Recreation, with an emphasis in the elderly. As a 21-year-old Barbara couldn't believe that something that was so much fun could actually result in a well-paying career. At which point she switched her major to sciences, went on to a four year University, got her Bachelor's Degree, and then pursued additional schooling to become a certified Nutritionist.

During this education period, Barbara joined her musician husband and did several "gigs" a week, as well as getting involved in party and event planning for her huge extended family.

Throughout the years Barbara took classes in various computer programs, which today is a necessity for any career or endeavor. In addition, several of the part-time jobs during college years uniquely qualified her and channeled her to become an activities director. Examples of this are her years as a school bus driver.

"It's what we can do in life that makes us happiest and that certainly applies to San Clemente Villas by the Sea," Barbara says. "Of course the people we love are our first joy; but then, what we can do often saves us when those people are no longer with us. While activities here at the Villas – such as Bingo and cards are wonderful for the elderly to get up and out of their rooms, I feel that the more deeply purposeful activities that require the use of a person's skills and passions are what make life worthwhile," Barbara concluded.
San Clemente Villas by the Sea has many group activities that achieve this purpose. For example there are the following activities:
