Our Leadership Team

Ian Murray
Executive Director

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!

Tina Drew
Fun Coordinator

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.

Melanie Charette
Culinary Manager

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.

Colleen Johnston
Director of Wellness

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.

Tony Piette
Maintenance Manager

In 2007 I had the opportunity to take on the Maintenance position at Village on the Thames. After working in the automotive sector for over 28 years and doing renovations in my homes I was up for the challenge. Through the years and through many changes in our building I still look forward to coming to work. I take pride in keeping Village on the Thames operational and to ensure that our residents have the best experience they can in their new home.
