We have a great team at Juniper Springs. Stop by anytime so we can connect in person. We would love to meet you.
Memory Care Administrator
Shannon brings to Juniper Springs 18 years of experience in senior living care. She has a passion for helping others and for continued career and personal growth. “My favorite thing about working at Juniper Springs is spending time with people who have vast life experiences. I truly love learning from them.” Throughout her years in senior living, Shannon has worked in several departments including food service, caregiving, and as a medication technician. Shannon started out at Juniper Springs as our Resident Care Coordinator, and after obtaining her administrator license, has transitioned into the role of Memory Care Administrator. ”
When Shannon’s not at work you can find her at the gym or spending time with her family. She loves going camping and spending time outdoors.
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.
Recreation Director—Memory Care
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.
Resident Care Coordinator
Michaila comes to us with a bachelor’s degree in Human Development and Family Sciences and has been working with the senior population since 2012. She is determined and detail-orientated in her career. “I strive to bring a loving and attentive atmosphere to all the seniors at Juniper Springs.” Michaila is currently working to obtain her BS in Nursing and looks forward to graduating in 2020.
As an avid adventurer you can typically find Michaila outdoors. She spends the winter months on the mountain teaching her son to snowboard and, in the summer, she is typically at the lake. In her free time, Michaila is traveling with her family and enjoys watching her son grow.
Director of Maintenance
Jerry has worked with elders throughout most of his career, including roles in assisted living communities, skilled nursing facilities, as well as being a pastor. He is excited about his new role at Juniper Springs and states, “It’s great being the maintenance guy because everyone likes it when you fix things! Seriously though, I look forward to creating a fun and safe environment for all our residents and staff here at Juniper Springs!”
Jerry and his wife are long-time Redmond residents and have made a lot of great memories while raising their two sons here. He enjoys exploring the warm island waters of the Caribbean, especially when Central Oregon temperatures begins to dip, and the snow is piling up at home. When he’s not fixing things at work, Jerry stays busy keeping up with his yellow lab, two boxers, and a chiweenie named Dixie.
