Like every family, we all make a difference in many unique ways…
… from a hug to celebrate a grandbaby
… to the best birthday cake
… to helping others in a time of need
… because love knows no limits.
Executive Director of The Summit
Patti Wall Odom is the Executive Director of The Summit at Lawrenceburg Senior Living. Patti began with The Summit 21 years ago, when it was still a vision in Dr. Leon Everett’s mind. She began marketing from her home for Magnolia Manor until they opened the doors on January 5, 1996. In 2006, GoodWorks Unlimited bought Magnolia Manor and changed the name to The Summit of Lawrenceburg.
Patti has three grown children and two gorgeous grandchildren. She graduated from the University of North Alabama in 1982 with a Bachelor’s degree in Social Work.
Patti states that she cannot see herself anywhere but right here at The Summit. “As Gary [GoodWorks Owner] always says…this is definitely a calling, and I know for a fact that this is mine.” Patti Odom

Vicki actually called Patti Odom at The Summit to get the name of a caregiver who could provide services to her mother at home. Vicki never thought Patti would contact her 2 1/2 years later to help Goodworks Unlimited start the first in home care to their business portfolio.
In June of 2010, The Summit at Home was started and Vicki became the Executive Director of a wonderful service that she wishes was around in 2007 when her mother’s accident occurred. Vicki understands how difficult it can be to care for a loved one and invites you to contact her today to learn more about The Summit at Home.
