Sandy and Alice are the owners of the Senior Living Advisory Group of Phoenix . The Group offers professional advisory and placement services for seniors or their families who are looking to transition to independent living, assisted living, memory care communities, or residential care homes.

Alice Starzinski was born and raised in Rockaway, NJ. She received her Bachelor's degree in Engineering from Penn State University and a Master’s in Operations Research from Stanford University. She worked in telecommunications for 15 years focusing on process improvement in product realization and manufacturing. She was a major contributor to the founding of the change management company, ProSci®, where she consulted for 2 years. When her children were born, Alice left her corporate job to allow more focus on her family. She is married to Al and has two children, Daniel (17) and Julia (14). Alice was drawn to the Senior Industry after personally experiencing the difficulties families endure, when her dad suffered a stroke and needed to be moved to Assisted Living. She saw the need to provide a counsel as well as direction to other families who would go through the same thing.

Sandy Mendez Benson is a native of Arizona. She was born in Bisbee, AZ and attended Arizona State University where she received a Bachelor of Science degree in Marketing. She completed her graduate work at Harvard Business School and graduated with an MBA. She has a corporate background with experience in consumer goods, telecommunications and real estate. Sandy volunteers as a board member for Desert Mission, Jewish Family and Children’s Services, and Phoenix Sister Cities. She is a passionate supporter of public education in Arizona and chairs many efforts to increase funding for our local public schools. Sandy is married to Blake Benson, and they have two young boys, Pierce and Chase.
