Veda Canchola-Smith

Director of Admissions

Director of Admissions

Veda has a lifelong passion for caring for others. As a youth, she spent time in Ecuador where she helped build a church, and cared for sick and disadvantaged children. Prior to becoming a nurse in 2016, her young adulthood was spent as an AmeriCorps member. Her early nursing experiences include private duty, family clinic, and psychiatric/mental health nursing. She was also a manager of an assisted living facility in Missouri before moving to Nashville, where she excelled in admissions and liaison positions. She joined Green Hills in July 2021, where she works hard each day to deliver a stress-free, high-quality experience for patients entering care at the community. Outside of work, Veda loves spending time in the natural vistas of the Natchez Trace Parkway and multiple natural resources and music venues afforded by her beloved Nashville.
