Kirk Allender - Maintenance Director


Kirk grew up in California, he has a great son who works for Apple Inc. Kirk’s father was a pilot and he thought maybe he would follow suit one day, but he knew that deep down he had a passion for the medical field. Kirk worked as a surgery attendant at Peninsula Hospital in Burlingame, California where one of his greatest experiences was assisting the float nurse in the open-heart surgical room.

Kirk has lived in Hayden for over 20 years and enjoys many of the recreational opportunities that North Idaho has to offer. He spends much of his time with his girlfriend, hiking remote areas, walking his dogs along the lake, and playing tennis. Kirk has worked for Honeysuckle Senior Living since 2013; he’s worked for other facilities but says Honeysuckle beats them all!
