Executive Director


Kristie brings her love and dedication to seniors as well as specialized customer service experience into her role as the Executive Director at Beau Provence.

She developed a propensity toward seniors with cognitive impairments. That’s when her passion to work in memory care was born. She enjoys working closely with family members by providing assistance and educating them through the process of finding the perfect community that their loved one can call home. She says, “it’s a true honor to provide personalized care to our community members by enhancing their quality of life and to provide their family with peace of mind.”
