TEAM Heartbeat

“In 1996, I embarked on what I thought was going to be a simple journey to build a community where my grandmother could live comfortably. At that time, a better community meant a better building. I quickly learned it meant so much more than that.” - Fee Stubblefield, Founder, and CEO of The Springs Living
