Leland Navarro, Director of Activities
I have served as the Health Fit Wellness Coach for WellQuest Palo Alto Commons for nearly 4 years, proudly providing personal training & physical therapy aid to residents in our Assisted Living, Independent Living, and two levels of Memory Care units. My background as a Certified Personal Trainer and ISSA-certified Lifespan Coach (specializing in Youth/Teen Personal Training and Senior Fitness), as well as my years as a non-medical care provider through Alameda County In-Home Supportive Services, led me to this unique and highly fulfilling role.
Recently, I was granted the amazing opportunity to further my career with WellQuest as the new Director of Activities: I look forward to carrying on the legacy of my predecessor and the one most responsible for establishing the Activities Program at WellQuest PAC, the esteemed and beloved Mrs. Deeann Hui, and furthering the program to best serve our wonderful residents and amazing staff!

I recently joined the team at PAC after a successful career in health insurance for seniors.
