Lifestyle Team

john headshotJohn Kraivec
Lifestyle Manager

Hello! My name is John Kraivec and I am your Lifestyle Manager at Esplanade at Highland Ranch! I am a New Jersey Native who relocated to Florida after studying Political Science and Business Management. After college, I worked as a Guest Experience Manager at Walt Disney World. I then transitioned into a Lifestyle Director where I led and developed a comprehensive Lifestyle program for over 27,000 residents. I then took my creativity to the sea and worked as the General Manager on American Cruise Lines. When I’m not working I spend my time rooting for my favorite New York-based sports teams (Go Mets!) as well as making beach trips to visit my family in West Florida. I can’t wait to meet you at one of our many events and activities throughout the year!
