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 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.

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.

Director of Community Outreach

I EXCITE the community about our community! Through education, as a Master of Public Health, and in my vast volunteer experience I have developed a passion for seniors. I engage with others through nurturing connection. Here I have seen lives transformed, health preserved, friendships borne and hearts made full, including my own. I relish in the thought of helping others find a place to call home, so I build relationships with community members and area professionals to increase awareness about Kensington Park. Then, together, we find ways to share our services and care with those who need what we have.

I prioritize, organize and systematize, and then document recommendations that help make moving as stress-free and joyful as possible.

Music Therapist

I HARMONIZE with residents, using song, rhythm and instruments to provide relaxation, relieve stress and decrease agitation. After years volunteering with seniors abroad, I was inspired to use my dual-degree in Music and Psychology to bring the joy of music to older adults. Once completing my Masters in Music Therapy and MTA certification, I joined the team at Kensington Park, sharing my a passion for the emerging field of Music Therapy and creating a new opportunity for residents to listen, move, sing, and create music as a compliment to other forms of expression, communication and exercise.

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.
