Meet our Executive Director
Sean M. Yule
Sean brings more than 20 years of senior living and hospitality experience to Bartlett Reserve, having worked in Atlanta, Arlington, Bethesda, Raleigh, and Durham. He is a customer-service-driven professional who excels in creating and managing incredible living environments for seniors.
Sean has served in both Independent Living and Assisted Living Communities throughout his career. However, it is Independent Living where he got his start in 1998, and it is in Independent Living that he finds the greatest joy.
“There is nothing more rewarding than helping residents keep and maintain their independence,” says Sean. “Creating a community and culture where that is more than a saying and is lived every day is incredibly fulfilling.”
Since Bartlett Reserve opened, Sean has strived to ensure that residents receive the highest level of service possible and is often adjusting to meet their ever-changing needs. He leads by example and hopes that his desire to serve the residents reflects in the entire team at Bartlett Reserve.
“The team here is willing to sacrifice so much for our residents,” says Sean. “It is truly a family environment.”
Born and raised in Kailua, Hawaii, Sean moved to the mainland to attend Kent State University, where he majored in Business Management. Sean moved to the Triangle area in 2009 and currently calls Chapel Hill home. He and his wife Kristy have two daughters and a Kerry Blue Terrier named Bruce.
