Lutheran Life Villages is making key leadership and organizational changes to address the evolving needs of older adults in our community.  These changes demonstrate their commitment in moving forward to serve today and tomorrow’s older adults, focused on their faith-based, nonprofit mission to serve as an expression of Christ’s love and their vision to be a provider of choice, an employer of choice, and a thought leader in the community.

Tricia Neary, MBA, has been promoted to Chief Strategy Officer.   A member of the executive team, she has served the organization for nearly 13 years, and most recently led the successful development of their newest, innovative community for active adults, Piper Trail. In her new role, she will oversee the operations of their lifestyle-focused communities, Piper Trail and the Residential Living apartments at the Village at Anthony Boulevard. She will also continue to lead the strategic work of fund development and marketing.

In addition, Sadie Fenstermaker, HFA, Administrator at The Village at Kendallville since 2017, has been promoted to Corporate Director of Clinical Operations and Bobbie Crutchfield, PHR, is joining the team to serve as Corporate Director of Human Resources. Ms. Fenstermaker will oversee the operations of the clinical communities while Ms. Crutchfield will leverage over 20 years of experience in Human Resources to guide the LLV Human Resources team serving all aspects of the organization’s people development and needs.

“We offer a wide range of high-quality services for older adults in our community” said Alex Kiefer, President and CEO of Lutheran Life Villages. “I am honored to announce these changes that represent our continued investment in our people and the strategic growth of our organization. Our vision to be a provider of choice, an employer of choice and a thought leader in our community is supported by the many talented and engaged leaders and staff members at LLV. These three women will continue to build our organizational strength and leadership competencies in an increasingly competitive environment for talent, quality care, and lifestyle housing and services for older adults.”
