We have a great team at Garden Place Columbia. We invite you to get to know them and come meet them in person.
Christine Holland, Assistant Director
Christine’s passion for numbers and organization is the reason she has worked in accounting for over 20 years! Although she was happy as an accountant, Christine was looking for a more meaningful position where she may continue utilizing her skills. This desire led her to Garden Place-Columbia in 2018, where she now enjoys making meaningful connections with our aging seniors and continues working with the numbers she loves so much! In her spare time, she enjoys gardening and visiting her grandchildren in Indiana.
Katy Staub, Dining Services Director
Katy started her career with Garden Place as a cook working at two of our 5 locations.
