When I listen to Colleen talk about her community, I can feel the passion in her voice. She speaks proudly of her staff and the excellent care that they all provide to the needs of their memory care residents. There’s a sense of certainty about her, which I feel brings reassurance to her community, especially to family members faced with the challenge of watching their loved ones go through the different stages of Alzheimer’s and other Dementias. This is attributed to her many years’ experience as an E.D., 16 of which she has overseen quality care in her community. There’s a reason they call her “Brittany” at her community ActivCare Living - Brittany House; you can tell that she takes pride in and works hard to be an exemplary Executive Director. Based on the feel you get from walking through her community along with the tenure of so many of her staff, it is very clear that she is passionate about taking care of the residents, the staff and the families. As a newer E.D. in the industry, Colleen is someone to look up to and aspire to be like.

Colleen is superwoman! Her commitment to the residents of ActivCare at Brittany House knows no bounds. From every facet of caregiving, she leads her team to ensure that each memory care resident receives compassionate care. She comforts families facing difficult times with patience, understanding, and gentle guidance. Her years of experience helps families navigate all of the challenges that Alzheimer’s and dementia can bring. Colleen inspires her team with hands-on attention. She personally attends to resident needs and provides loving care as an example for her team. She rolls up her sleeves to assist in the kitchen, in the activity room and even with individual resident care. Her passion for the community is contagious and when she does outreach, she encourages families in need to visit the community to learn more and receive the help in caring for a loved one with dementia. Her associates respect her as more than an executive director, but also a warmhearted friend that is committed to providing the best care. Colleen exemplifies a true leader through her attitude, her experience, and especially her love of her residents.
