RN, Executive Director

Wellspring has provided me an opportunity to fuel my purpose and passion daily. The variability in the work that I do ensures that no day is like any other, and I am always focused on creating a meaningful experience for those we serve. The staff at our Saginaw Senior Living Campus shares in the Wellspring vision and is dedicated to the mission, which truly creates an environment where everybody can be and do their best.

Hospitality & Sales Assistant

I have the privilege of coming alongside so many people at such an emotional and life-changing time in their lives. In those moments, I have the privilege of educating families about the different services that may best suit their lifestyle. It’s truly a humbling experience.

I honestly can’t see myself anywhere else. Wellspring’s Senior Living Campus has an atmosphere where you can feel the compassion and support of everyone around you. I drive home at night hoping I’ve made even the slightest impact on someone’s life – like the folks here have done for me.

LPN, Director of Resident Care

Being a nurse and working with/helping others is important to me. In this role, I am able to help others by making sure their care is properly coordinated, as well as coach my team to the success of achieving the goals of the department.

I believe in Wellspring’s mission and I feel blessed to be able to serve our residents (and families) with a person-centered approach through God’s work. Wellspring gives hope to many people, and I am proud to be part of that.

I started with Wellspring in November 2013 as a part-time floor nurse in Frankenmuth’s long-term care facility. From there, I transferred to the Senior Living Campus in Saginaw. I served as the AFC manager for memory support. A few months ago, I was promoted to the campus’ director of resident care.

RN, Associate Executive Director

I am very passionate about this campus. My role is to be sure the residents are happy with their home here and that they are safe on this campus. I went into the health field to help people live their lives to the fullest – to the very end of life. And I feel that is what we do here at Wellspring Lutheran Services.

I joined Wellspring because we serve people through all stages and circumstances of life – from foster care to end of life care with hospice. I wanted to make a difference in people’s lives and felt that I could do that here.

ADC, Life Enrichment Manager

I love what I do! It’s a privilege to be in a position where I get to enrich the lives of so many wonderful people. My goal is to make sure everyone enjoys living at our campus and they feel at home.

I have been with Wellspring for 20 years. I started in the kitchen at Frankenmuth as dishwasher while I was a college student. That’s where my passion grew for working with the elderly. It grew so much that I even added a gerontology minor to my degree.

Wellspring’s faith-based mission cultivated my own faith to grow. I saw the love of God working through the staff and the leaders, especially at the highest level. I admired that and felt a pull. I realized later it was the Lord calling me to serve, and to do so at Wellspring.
