We have a great team at Shorewood Senior Living. We invite you to get to know them and come meet them in person.
Susan Burkhart, Business Services Director
“What is my passion? Serving the people at Shorewood Senior Living,” says Susan. Susan has been a part of this community since 1994. She is thrilled to work for the new owners as of July 2016. “Who wouldn’t like to work for a company with the motto Guided by goodness, loyalty, faith and fun?” Shorewood has been a major part of Susan’s family. Her husband retired after 16 years as Kitchen Director. They raised four children during that time--three of them learned to work at Shorewood. Shorewood has been a major part of baby showers, graduations, weddings, and more babies for her family. Susan has enjoyed sharing her life with the elders and being a part of their lives. As Business Services Director, she will continue to serve and make a positive difference in the lives of the Shorewood family.
Niki Hill, Life Enrichment Coordinator
Niki has been in the senior living profession since 1998. As she put it, "it is a world that I love". There are not many jobs where, when it is time to go home you feel like you want to stay longer, she says. She is excited about being at Shorewood. Her hope is to give all who live and work at Shorewood a person to count on and to be ready with a hug or smile. Niki worked for Springfield High School for three years teaching choreography. She choreographed ten plays for the high school and local drama groups. As a hobby, she writes children’s books and has three books published.
Niki is originally from Billings, Montana. She is married to Lance, and together, they have two daughters and a late son and four grandchildren and two great-granddaughters. Besides family, the most important thing to Niki is her faith. She was an only child whose father was a military man and she learned that rules and regulations made life smoother when adhered to. She still believes it makes life easier to this day.
