Meet our Executive Director

Aleta Shelton

I am Aleta Shelton, Executive Director for Walnut Ridge Assisted Living in Walnut Cove, NC. I’ve been working in senior living for 2 years and my favorite thing about coming to work every day is getting to interact with our wonderful residents and families. I started out in the healthcare industry as a CNA in 2001. I worked for Baptist Hospital for the next 19 years in various roles. I was a CNA, CNAII, Mental Health Technician, and then worked my way through nursing school. I graduated in 2015 with my BSN from Winston Salem State University. My last nursing job was on an Acute Care for the Elderly unit. This is where my passion for senior living grew. I was inspired to work full-time in the industry and started my career as a Resident Care Consultant here at Walnut Ridge. I was able to grow and become an Executive Director and get my ED license this year. In my spare time, I enjoy concerts, traveling, shopping, and spending time with my friends and family. I’ve been the ED at Walnut Ridge for a year and look forward to meeting you when you come tour our great community!
