Meet the Team

Deborah Savoie

Executive Director

Deborah Savoie started her career in senior care working with her sister-in-law’s physical therapy company. As her passion for seniors grew, so did her career. In 1991, she accepted her first executive director role in an assisted living community. In 2008, she became a regional operations manager of an assisted living company. In 2010, her passion and love for seniors took her back into an assisted living community as an executive director.

“The best part of my day is knowing I’ve made a difference in a resident’s life.”

Outside of work, Deborah enjoys the theater and the opera.

Fabio Koehler

Culinary Services Director

Fabio was born and raised in Brazil, and after graduating from college, he moved to San Francisco. From a young age, Fabio had a passion for everything that included food, as the kitchen has always felt like home to him.

His Italian and German ancestry passed on the love of food and cooking as well. Family gatherings for him have always revolved around the menu and cooking. Eventually, Fabio turned his passion into his career path and started working in assisted living in early 2008.

Fabio’s personal commitment in his life is to continue to learn and study about the relationships of food, health and nutrition, as he finds these subjects fascinating. He wholeheartedly incorporates this commitment into the meals he prepares to continue to help residents maintain vibrant health. In Fabio’s free time, he enjoys playing soccer, painting, and spending time with friends and family.

Kim Chua-Pilapil

Business Office Director

Kim was born and raised in the Philippines, where the social model is that the entire family takes care of their elders – so advocating for her elders in the assisted living model comes naturally.

Kim started working in the assisted living business in 2013 with humble and rewarding beginnings working as a caregiver, medical technician and wellness manager. With a degree in nursing and many classes (and a HUGE interest) in accounting, Kim could not resist an opportunity to work in the business office as the assistant to the business office director. Eight months later, Kim found herself being offered the very busy and complex position of business office director here at The Point at Rockridge. She finds this work very challenging and rewarding.

Kim describes herself as a homebody when she’s not at work. She enjoys quiet time with her husband and loves going on road trips for travel and adventure.
