Executive Director

I STRENGTHEN the bonds among residents, their families and my team because I believe life is richer when relationships are sound. I imagine myself in the position of others so I can relate on their terms, compassionately. I see strength before weakness, sun before clouds, upsides before downsides. My optimistic nature creates a culture of positivity that draws our Kensington Park family close.

Director of Sales & Marketing

I ENGAGE fully in the lives of Kensington Park residents and their families. From the time I was 10 years old, I knew I wanted to be with and work among seniors any chance I could get. I stayed the course and now offer wisdom from a lifetime of focus on improving the lives of older adults. Inspired by an exceptional relationship with my Mother, I continue to appreciate the joy and challenge of age. I honor my Mother by sharing her lessons to care deeply, treat others kindly, work passionately and give generously.

Director of Independent Living

I UPHOLD the wishes of residents to be in charge of their lives to the greatest degree possible. I strive to create a community that brings the best features of their past lifestyle to their current one. I work closely with my team to give residents more time for leisure pursuits, cultural enrichment and socialization by relieving them of the tasks of running their own home. I respect the individuality among us yet treasure the sense of unity we share, as if we are one, big, happy family.

I am intuitive, fearless and resourceful, and I do, be or get whatever we need to help residents and their families feel like part of ours. I do not rest until I know I have contributed something positive to whoever crosses my path.

Director of Assisted Living

I ENRICH the lives of our residents by passionately weaving deep knowledge about senior care into every shared moment. I draw from a history that is rich with firsthand experience, education, teaching and training. When it comes to new opportunities to enhance a resident program or to create a new one, no grass grows under my feet. I am quick to contribute ideas and action. I am a teacher to the core. But, when it comes to our residents, I am their student, for they have shown me the immeasurable value of living joyfully in the present. I am grateful.

Director of Memory Care

I PRESERVE the comfort and security of our memory care residents. I am their strength when they feel weak, a calming influence when they are frustrated. My intuitive nature enables me to sense what residents need, even if they have difficulty communicating. I recognize that dementia is complex but believe that simple gestures of regard go a long way in making moments of joy last a little longer, for residents and their families.

Kensington Park's Best Friend

I CHARM our residents and all who visit with my dashing good looks and outgoing personality. I’ve had the good fortune to be around seniors since I was 10 weeks old. I love them all and look for every chance I can get to spend time by their side, whether sharing an afternoon walk or snoozing nearby in a patch of sunlight. I greet each day ready to give love, kisses, comfort and companionship. I am a best friend to many and feel privileged to call them my family.
