Our days are filled with important duties and routines. Yet human connection takes precedence over the necessities of our job descriptions every time. You are why we're here.
We bring varied backgrounds and skills to our roles, but we are all here to love and support you.
Joe has a Bachelor degree in Business Administration from DeVry University and close to 25 years experience in healthcare. He began his career as a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) and received his Healthcare Administrator License in 2001.
"My mother was a nurse, and I grew up in healthcare around professionals who cared for others. Traditions places the same emphasis on the care and well-being of its residents and staff. We are active listeners and we respect our residents' histories and dreams. I still remember the resident who had always wanted to ride a Harley Davidson. After a few phone calls, she was seeing town from the side car of a Harley, wind and pure joy on her face. Our group is willing (and excited) to go above and beyond in serving the needs of our residents and families."
Joe and his wife have been married for 19 years and have two beautiful daughters, Gavri and Haley, who attend Ohio State and Indiana University.
Kylie has a Bachelor's of Business Management from Azusa Pacific University and an Associate degree in Business and Technology from College of the Desert. She began her career with Traditions as a Move-in Coordinator, transitioned to Activities Director, then served as an interim Community Relations Director before moving into the position permanently.
"I work alongside the best, and Traditions truly cares about who they place in each position. I came from the hospitality industry (Marriott International), so I was trained to provide personalized and elevated experiences. In my new role, I have the honor of providing care and comfort to families and residents as they make the transition to senior living. These residents are very special to me, and I am committed to making Hunter Station feel like home for them."
Kylie was born in Palm Desert, California. Her father builds golf courses, a profession that took them to more than 18 countries in her lifetime. Today, Kylie and her husband have been married for three years and relocated back to Indiana to be closer to his family.
Chef Kim was born and raised in Memphis, TN and is proud to infuse her kitchen with southern hospitality. She graduated from Sullivan University and regularly participated in the annual Tasting Extravaganza at the Olmsted Masonic Homes in Louisville, KY, an event that raises money for the Kentuckian Stroke Association.
“I believe the key to our residents' hearts is through exemplary food and I bring it to them with joy. I love to prepare a diverse selection of foods and to delight people with their favorites, an experience that creates and brings back happy memories.” When not at Hunter Station, Kim enjoys spending time with her husband and two children.
