Our Leadership Team
I started at Village on the Thames in October of 2013 as the Culinary Manager, bringing with me over twenty years experience in the hospitality sector. Since that day I have made the Resident experience and quality my priorities. Now as the Executive Director I am carrying these principles with me to all we do at Village on the Thames. From the cookies I still bake every Friday, to the care and services we provide, and the Chef inspired meals, our team members strive to exceed your expectations on a daily basis. At Village on the Thames, We love our Residents and I welcome you to visit and experience the difference today. There may even be a cookie waiting for you!
I began my journey with Steeves & Rozema early summer 2019. I started at head office and moved to Twin Lakes Village as the Residents Services Manager and then moved to Village on the Thames to be their RSM. I have worked with seniors throughout my career and most enjoy listening to their stories and life experiences. Our residents constantly amaze me with their wisdom and understanding. I feel very honored to be able to keep learning and getting to know our residents here at Village on the Thames and hope to be able to touch their lives as so many here have already touched mine.
The residents and team here are like family, which makes coming to work rewarding. My goal is to create activities that are joyful and exciting for our residents, whether we go bowling at the Bowlerama or stay at home and bowl with Nintendo Wii. I look forward to our new experiences together - shopping, luncheon and picnic outings, and concerts in the park. I am delighted at the opportunity to get to know our residents better. It is amazing what you can learn from them.
I love working in such a beautiful home with so many wonderful residents and team members. Meals are a big focal point for the residents. We are so lucky to live where we get so many local fresh fruits and vegetables that we can incorporate into our daily menus. We are here to make sure that the whole dining experience is a great one for our residents.
It is a pleasure to join Steeves and Rozema at Village on the Thames. I offer our team 30 years experience working in seniors care promoting wellness and healthy living. I am passionately committed to ensure quality care with dignity and respect, while supporting the preferences and independence of our residents.
