Cathy Mills, ADON/MDS Coordinator

I am a proud mother of 4 children and soon to be 7 grandchildren. I have been a nurse since 1991. I have been employed at Advena Living of Bonner Springs for 11 years. I wear many hats as a staffing coordinator, educator, MDS Coordinator, and Assistant Director of Nursing.  My passion lies in providing care to residents and their families above all of my roles. Being able to provide bedside nursing care to residents and seeing them smile is what nursing is all about. 

Kim Steakle, Director of Marketing and Admissions

Ashley Davies, Activities and Social Services Director

Twenty years ago, I got the opportunity to work in long-term care. I started off as a dietary aide, spent most of my years as an Activities Director/Assistant. I recently took on the role of the Social Services Director and I am looking forward to the road ahead of me. When looking back over the past years, whether it was working with residents, family, staff, and out in the community, I get the feeling of self-fulfillment. I take pride in what I do and hope to spread that feeling to others.

Lisa Richardson, Therapy Director

I became interested in occupational therapy when a family member of mine had an injury and I was able to attend some of his therapy sessions. It was fascinating to see the improvements he was experiencing both physically and mentally as he made progress in his therapy. Because of this, I decided that occupational therapy was the career that I wanted to pursue. The fact that I get to play a small part in a person reaching their goals and being able to return to the level of independence that makes them feel their best is one of the greatest aspects of working in occupational therapy. Throughout my career, I have worked in several different settings, but the skilled nursing setting seems to be where I belong. The stories and experiences that the residents in our facility have to share are invaluable. It is truly a blessing to be involved in their lives.

Stormy Proa, Dietary Director

Coming soon

Kathryn Foya, Transportation / Central Supply Manager

I have worked at Advena Living of Bonner Springs for over 15 years. My grandpa was a resident here and I received an opportunity to help provide care for him. I am very passionate about caring for residents and assisting wherever I am needed. I am a certified nursing assistant and have worked in dietary, laundry, central supply and transportation. I enjoy serving our residents and I am a proud member of the Bonner Springs community.
