Kelly Treisch, Health Services Director
Kelly had a lifelong desire to become a nurse. She began her healthcare career as a certified nursing assistant and after becoming a licensed practical nurse went to work in a fast paced hospital setting. In 1994, through a series of events, Kelly found the senior living industry and learned she not only had a passion for seniors but also a strong desire to work with those suffering with dementia. She quickly became a memory care director where she had the opportunity to help in the development and implementation of training programs as well as the opening of two new memory care communities in the state of Washington.
Kelly decided to return to school to pursue her RN degree, and soon after achieving that she accepted a position as a corporate nurse. This position had her travelling between 10 different states supporting multiple communities, helping to train those nursing teams and filling in when needed. When her husband decided that he was ready to retire, Kelly’s desire to stay closer to home led her to Royalton Place. She said she feels she has found a warm friendly community with a staff and residents that she truly enjoys.
In her free time Kelly enjoys spending time with her family including her children, grandchildren and the many friends she has all over the United States. She and her husband love to travel and have a friend who drives the NASCAR circuit. She also enjoys spending time on the water in their boat with her family and their dog, a Great Pyrenees.
