Tim McLemore: Executive Director
Education:  Doctorate at Iliff School of Theology in Denver, Master’s degree at Southern Methodist University's Perkins School of Theology in Dallas, Texas, and B.A. from Mt. Vernon College, Ohio.

The work that Elderhaus does is vital and inspiring.  I am excited about working with our committed and caring staff and board members to continue growing and strengthening the extraordinary foundation that Joanne Vande Walle so capably helped to build.

Reesa Hanck:  Assistant Director/Compliance Officer
Education: Certified Nurse Assistant (C.N.A.) 18 yrs: Qualified Medication Administration Personnel (QMAP)-Med. Manager,  CPR, First Aid
Experience: Elderhaus since 2006: C.N.A. long-term care facility 3 yrs: C.N.A. home health care 3 yrs:  C.N.A. Hospice 6 yrs.
I received my nurse assistant training at a long-term care facility in Brush, Colorado.  I moved to Ft Collins in 1997 and worked for a home health agency and then for Hospice.  I first learned of Elderhaus when I was caring for a client who attended the day program.  After leaving Hospice, I applied for a program director position with Elderhaus.  I have learned so much since my first day with Elderhaus and continue to learn every day I am here.  Each participant adds a little bit of seasoning to the pot of diversity.  I look forward to each day and the smiles of everyone as they greet you certainly can turn a frown upside down.  I feel very privileged to have the opportunity to learn about history and changes the senior population has witnessed.  The stories that need to be remembered and the people that lived them are right here at Elderhaus.

Experience:  Elderhaus since 2005; Nursing Home, Home Health and Private Care CNA for 13 years
After moving to Alaska in 1998 to care for my mother who had suffered a stroke, I found that caring for her was extremely rewarding. Returning to Colorado, I took classes and earned my CNA and then my Gerontology degree from University of Northern Colorado in 2005. Soon after graduating, I put my experience and training to work at Elderhaus, where I love to share in the triumphs and challenges those we serve experience on a daily basis.

Kylie Jones: Occupational Therapist
Education: Master’s in Occupational Therapy, BS in Occupational Science with a Minor in Dance
Experience: Elderhaus since 2016
During my time in CSU’s Occupational Therapy program, I completed my very first fieldwork experience at Elderhaus! I instantly fell in love with the mission of Elderhaus and with the wonderful participants. Two years later, I graduated with my Master’s in OT and began working at this magical place. I developed a post-stroke group called, “L.I.F.E.: Living Independently For Everyone,” which will always have a special place in my heart. I am constantly amazed by the way Elderhaus provides people with a safe and fun place to engage in activities in the community. As an OT, it is especially incredible to work where health is encouraged through everyday occupation! I am so grateful for Elderhaus, for the hardworking staff, and for each participant that I get to see every day.
