Roanna “Ro” Byers

Food Service Director

My name is Roanna Byers, Ro for short, and I am the new Food Service Director for Jennings McCall. I grew up locally in the Vernonia area. My restaurant kitchen experience began at the age of sixteen, and I  continued in the food service industry for twelve years. This included assistant manager at McMenamins, and I managed the Forest Grove Elks Lodge kitchen. Over the last ten years I was a medical technician, stay at home mom, production operator, and caregiver. Last year I found myself back in the kitchen, enjoying every moment of it. I look forward to many years serving the residents of Jennings McCall.


In my personal time I enjoy reading, nature, camping, games, (card or board)  and music. My husband of eighteen years, homeschools our nine year old son, and when I’m home,  we enjoy trips to the beach, rivers, and mountains. I also spend time reading to my son, and playing Legos. We like to play music and dance. As avid animal lovers, we have a cat and a dog.
