Tristin Benjamin is the executive director of Eskaton Monroe Lodge and has been with the Eskaton family for 15 years. Before joining the Eskaton Monroe Lodge team in 2012, she worked as the resident services director at Eskaton Village Carmichael. Having grown up around the industry (both parents were professionals in senior services), entering the field was a natural progression for Tristin. She obtained her RCFE Administrator certification in 2006 and retains that credentialing so she can help out whenever and wherever she’s needed. Outside of work, she enjoys “glamping” with her family, exploring nature and watching her children’s competitive soccer and basketball games. For Tristin, the most rewarding aspect of her role is working alongside her team and residents to make a positive difference in each other’s daily lives.
