CHASKA, Minn., The Goodman Group, a national leader in developing and managing senior living and health care communities, today announced the appointment of Amanda Sue Watson, MA, LN, CNS, as Director of Platinum Passport Services. This is the first position of its kind within the company.

Watson will oversee individualized health coaching sessions, personal wellbeing plans, educational opportunities, support for families and caregivers, and much more. Members will work with a Life Navigator to review their current health state, identify goals and explore ways to make lifelong changes.
