Carolina Assisted Living | Team

Our Team

We have a great team at Carolina here in Appleton. We invite you to get to know them and come meet them in person.

Josh Bray, Administrator at Carolina Assisted Living

Josh Bray, Administrator

Josh Bray, Administrator, grew up watching and learning from his mother's career in elder care, which planted the care giving seed. He was part of a Coast Guard family, so he lived on both coasts and many points in between. Josh believes this created a love of meeting new people and hearing their stories. He settled in Wisconsin in 1994 and it has been his home since with his wife and two children. Josh earned a Bachelors degree in Wildlife Management and Ecology from UW Stevens Point-- nature and the environment has always been one of his passions. Josh learned early in his career that caring and educating children came naturally and became my driving force for the last eight years. He wants to help bridge the gap between generations and ensure that elders continue to have an important role in raising our community's children. Creating genuine human connections with the many people around him is what brings true happiness to him.

Katie VanBeek, Wellness Coordinator at Carolina Assisted Living

Toni Thiel, RN, Wellness Director

As an RN I have been able to spend the majority of my nursing career working in geriatrics.  Further fortune has allowed me to spend much of that time focused on helping older adults with dementia related diseases.  Assisting people with dementia, and their loved ones, with the challenges of this disease process has been rewarding and heartbreaking.  I have found some of my greatest joys in small moments and unfiltered smiles.

I live in Neenah with my husband and 2 children.  I enjoy artistic hobbies and reading as well as many types outdoor adventures
