We have a great team at Juniper Springs. Stop by anytime so we can connect in person. We would love to meet you.
Colleen started working in senior living in 2011 after she spent time as a caregiver for her in-laws in 2001. She obtained her Administrator License and joins our community with experience in independent, assisted living and memory care. She sincerely loves working with the senior population and we couldn’t be more excited to have her join our team! “I put heart into what I do every day. I have patience and understanding for residents, staff and families. I have a positive outlook on everything and truly believe there is good in everyone.”
When she’s not working, you’ll find Colleen spending time with her family and exploring Oregon. She really loves to garden, and finds great enjoyment in teaching her children to cook and bake.
Business Office Coordinator
Vanessa comes to us with extensive experience in customer service and a background in business management. Most of her working years have been spent managing and running her family business, a local kettle corn company. “It was through my family business that I found my love for people and I truly try to put a smile on everyone’s face.” If you’ve gotten the chance to meet Vanessa, you know how true that statement is.
Vanessa started out at Juniper Springs as our main receptionist but quickly showed us she was willing to take on more. She now holds the position of Business Office Coordinator, and we couldn’t be happier to have such a hard-working, dedicated, and kind member on our team.
When not at work, at Juniper Springs or the kettle corn business, you can find Vanessa spending time with her husband and two children. Born and raised in Central Oregon, there’s nothing she enjoys more than spending time exploring and enjoying the beauty of the place she calls home. Some of her favorite family activities include camping, fishing, and hunting.

Angela started her career in senior living in 2006 when she became a caregiver. Since then, she’s held a variety of positions including, medication technician, house manager, resident care coordinator, administrator and now recreation director. She describes her strengths to be honesty, kindness, forgiveness and leadership. We witness those strengths everyday as she connects with staff, residents and family members in such a meaningful way. “My favorite thing about working in senior living is being able to put a smile on a resident’s face when they are having a bad day. I also enjoy every moment of listening and learning from their life stories.”
When not working you’ll find her spending time with her friends and family, going on motorcycle rides in summer, or watching her favorite shows on the food network channel.
