Cascadia Senior Living and Fieldstone Communities are excited to introduce Krista Kinzer as our Executive Director at Fieldstone Cornell Landing, an assisted living and memory care community in Portland, Oregon. With over 15 years in senior living, Krista brings a wealth of experience to our Fieldstone team.
“Krista is an experienced leader, with a strong passion for seniors. She came highly recommended to our community and is a perfect fit for the culture of our organization,” says Thomas Cloutier, VP of Operations for Cascadia Senior Living. “Fieldstone Cornell Landing is in the right hands as we open this new and exciting community in Portland.”
Krista was born and raised in Hillsboro, Oregon. She and her ten-year old daughter, Candace, currently live in Aloha, Oregon. She enjoys family time (big family with eight siblings living nearby), spending time outdoors, hiking, and paddle boarding. Krista recently took up indoor rock climbing, and Candace is already “besting” her at the activity.
Krista’s career in senior living began unexpectedly. She explains, “I fell into the senior living industry, not knowing what I was getting into I found myself having a passion for the seniors, their families, & the staff.” Describing her role as an Executive Director, Krista explains that she “strives every day to serve each senior, their families, & the staff to the best of my abilities. With hands on experience providing care, I am able to direct quality care by working alongside the team, keeping an open mind & heart to the suggestions of others, & listening to the needs of each person so that every interaction is personalized to the individual. My door is always open to all.”
