Executive Chef Frankie Bunch
Frankie Bunch was born in Dallas, Texas and raised in Plano where his passion for cooking developed. He has been cooking for 15 years, and after graduating from the Culinary Arts Institute of Dallas in 2009, Frankie sought opportunities to further develop his skills through serving the seniors of North Dallas in multiple Luxury Senior Communities.
Frankie quickly became an indispensable asset to the communities, earning promotions from Sous Chef to Executive Chef. He has been awarded Employee of the Month, Excellence in Food Preparation, and Best Pastry Preparation for Holidays.
Frankie joined Lake Point Luxury Assisted Living in June 2019 as Executive Chef. He delights our residents and guests with his refined, contemporary cuisine. Frankie believes the most flavorful cuisine is made simply, with high quality products. He considers it part of his job to inspire and educate residents about the ability to have great-tasting, flavorful meals while staying within a physician recommended diet.
In his free time, Frankie prioritizes spending time with his loving family. He and his beautiful wife Jade have two children, daughter Aaralyn and son Phoenix. Frankie’s hobbies include hiking, fishing, camping, playing instruments and making music, reading, and going to the gun range for target practice.
Executive Director, Maria Alonzo, LVN
Maria Alonzo’s career as a Licensed Vocational Nurse, or LVN, has stretched from nursing in hospital settings (such as ICU, DOU, medical surgical, acute and post-acute rehabilitation) to treatment and infection-control nurse. And it wasn’t just her patients who benefited from Maria’s expertise – she took on staff development responsibilities and assisted 20 certified nurses (RNs and LVNs) in remaining compliant through Continuing Education Units (CEU).
Upon realizing her passion for the senior community, Maria served as Executive Director for multiple assisted living communities. Maria holds licenses in California and Washington, plus a Compact license, allowing her to serve in 26 other states.
Maria’s personal integrity and high standards for resident care led to communities in Texas and California that ran citation-free. Most recently, Maria traveled across the U.S., restoring best practices, organization, and superior standard of care for communities in need.
Maria has a true love for nursing and dedication to the well-being of her residents. She is excited to join Lake Point Luxury Assisted Living as Executive Director.
