The Heart and Mind Behind Our Senior Placement Company

Pinnacle Senior Placements in Kent, WA, was established out of a pure desire to serve the elderly and their families. At present, our company still lives up to that calling by serving each family with dignity and respect.

Daphne Davis

Daphne Davis, Company Owner 

Daphne leverages her strong business and entrepreneurial background in running Pinnacle Senior Placements. Since 1985, she has experienced handling management positions and establishing her own business. Being in these positions of responsibility allowed her to enjoy the freedom of implementing the credo of “doing the right thing for the right reason every time.”

In 2001, Daphne was introduced to senior care. She continues to enjoy serving elders and their families to this day.

Daphne has been devoting her time for the last 25 years as a loving wife and as a hands-on mother to two boys. She attends family, school, and sporting events while still having a full-time career. Her interests include playing the organ/piano for choir and church services. Aside from that, she also loves traveling both domestically and internationally with her husband and friends.

She has worked in the health field for 20+ years, always supporting others in their success.

She spends her time developing and maintaining our database and accounting systems.

Jolene’s first love is her family. She enjoys being married, spending time with her five kids and, most importantly, she adores spending time with her five grandchildren. She also enjoys journaling, crafting, and reading.

Emily Badgley

Emily Badgley

Emily has been part of the Pinnacle Senior Placements’ team since February 2017. Her natural desire to assist and interact with seniors led her to working as a caregiver. She has been a caregiver since 2005 in both rehab facilities and adult family homes. Her personality is inviting and playful, which helped her become an activities director at an assisted living community. With these experiences, she has developed the skills needed to help our elder population discover their highest values and learn what to look for in a care community. It was a natural progression for her to assist families in exploring and securing long-term care and housing for their loved ones.

Emily has three children who bring joy and energy into her life. She spends her free time going on family vacations and exploring the Pacific Northwest.

In 2010, Janis and her family needed help finding the right living situation for her stepdad who had dementia. Having struggled through the sea of choices without any assistance, she finally met Daphne Davis who helped her find just the right place. Daphne's ability to help Janis and her family was not soon forgotten. When she needed help the summer of 2020 to find the right fit for her mom, she reached out to Daphne once again.

Janis is now happy to be a part of the Pinnacle team, and she brings over 30 years of business experience. She knows the value of having an advocate and now enjoys being an advocate for families as she assists them through the process of deciding on housing and care.
