Roger Greene, Business Office Manager
Roger joined our BPM family as a Maintenance Assistant at Regency Park in February 2014 and was promoted to Building Services Director in February 2016. In May of 2017 he embraced a new role as our Business Office Manager. He brings to our community over 19 years of valuable experience in the management and maintenance of large multifamily apartment complexes. Roger has proven to be exceptionally passionate about working with our senior population, and takes the greatest degree of care, pride and pleasure in assisting them with their needs, no matter how trivial. He has a deep affection for each of our residents, and can often be heard laughing and joking with them in the hallways, or quietly talking to them about their diversely unique life stories – “I find it especially rewarding and interesting learning about their incredible lives, and as I watch them relay their stories I see the youthful light reawakened in their eyes. Those are the moments that truly feed my soul.”
In his off time, Roger enjoys spending time with his wife, Cheryl, their dog Leo, and (fat) cat Joey. He and Cheryl enjoy vacationing in their motor home, trying to play golf, home brewing, and to immerse himself in the pages of his favorite author’s latest novel (Wilbur Smith).
Kelcie Riba, Activity Director
Kelcie grew up outside of Hillsboro, Oregon in North Plains. Initially drawn to working with people with special needs, she volunteered in various outreach organizations where she found her passion to advocate for people of all abilities. A few years later, Kelcie joined the Regency Park Team as a dining room server, falling in love with the community and residents. With the drive to better serve her residents and growing in a community she believes in, working with the aging population on a more personal level became Kelcie’s passion. Her favorite part about Activities, is taking the residents out of the community and assisting with errands, while promoting independence. It is Kelcie’s goal to help residents and families enjoy the Regency Park lifestyle as much as she does.
Kelcie has two children and a dog. She plays softball and loves to be out in nature!
Laura Andres, Community Outreach Director
Laura serves Regency Park as our Community Outreach Director. Laura graduated from George Fox University with her master’s in business administration.

Laura comes to work each day with a smile on her face ready to serve families and their loved ones. She understands that transitioning to care away from the home can be difficult, and supports families in finding the best solutions.
Aside from work, Laura enjoys reading and spending time with her family.

Silvia has worked with older adults since 1998. She began working as a caregiver and then opened her own adult foster care home business. Later she managed two other adult care homes, which she did for almost a decade.

In 2014 Silvia joined BPM Regency Park Assisted Living as health services administrator. In 2017 she decided that she wanted to dedicate her time to serving those with dementia, so she pursued training as a memory care administrator.
