Hello and welcome to Wells Point Lodge. I’m Susan and I’ve had the privilege of being the Executive Director of Wells Pointe Lodge (formally Heatherwilde Assisted Living) for more than 7 years. I started my career in long term care as a volunteer which led me to becoming an Activity Director. Shortly after, I earned my assisted living manager certification and assumed my current role.
Before Wells Point Lodge, I worked in banking, property management and owned my own business. Nothing has fulfilled me more than working at Wells Point Lodge. I love our Residents and their families and can’t imagine a better job.
We have a great team here at Wells Point Lodge who focus on building relationships and trust with our Residents. We know how blessed we are to be entrusted to care for a family’s greatest treasure, and work hard to exceed our Residents and their families’ expectations daily.
I look forward to showing you our beautiful community and welcoming you into the Wells Point Lodge family.x
Hi, I’m Ryan and I’m the newest member of the Wells Point Lodge team. I’ve been a nurse for about 7 years now and in addition to assisted living I have worked in a range of settings from primary care, urgent care, family medicine and acute care. I’ve enjoyed getting to know all of our Residents and their families and am looking forward to many more years here.
Come visit us at Wells Point Lodge and meet our amazing Residents and wonderful staff. We look forward to meeting you!x
Sales and Marketing Director
Hello, I’m Crista, Sales and Marketing Director at Wells Point Lodge. I am the newest member of the team and I'm so honored to work alongside a long-standing, knowledgeable, and caring staff whose mission is to create a meaningful experience for the Residents we serve! My history with the senior care industry began long before my professional career--my mother and grandmother both worked in health services for assisted living communities. I started my own career as an Activity Director and moved into a marketing role shortly after.
I'm originally from Washington state where I studied at Central Washington University. I most recently served as a Marketing Director for a memory care community in Bellingham, so far north we were almost in Canada! I have enjoyed the mountains, trees and the peninsula of Washington, but have long dreamed of making Austin my home. I am looking forward to many happy years in the Texas sunshine!
Working with seniors and their families is the greatest joy of my life. It is a blessing to care for and learn from our Residents. I'm excited to represent this wonderful community, build relationships with our current and future Residents and to welcome others into our Wells Point Lodge family!x
Hello, I’m Shannon and I’m the Activities Director at Wells Point Lodge. I’m blessed to have such a rewarding job in this wonderful community. I receive such pleasure and joy on a daily basis being able to bring smiles and laughter to our Residents through our daily activities and just conversation with them. It’s a great honor to be able to be an extended part of the Residents and their families’ lives.
I’ve worked in healthcare for over twenty years in several different areas including memory care and assisted living.
I was born and raised on the Gulf Coast of Alabama and relocated to Texas two years ago and am proud to call it home.
When I’m not spending my day with our Residents, I enjoy spending time with my husband and boating.x
Dining Service Director
Hi, I’m Dana and I’ve been the Head Chef and Dining Service Director at Wells Point Lodge (formerly Heatherwilde Assisted Living) for 8 years. I started at Heatherwilde as a part-time weekend cook and over the years worked my way up to Dining Service Director. I’ve cooked professionally for over 10 years and trained at the University of Florida’s School for Nutrition and Food Service Professionals.
I am originally from Amarillo, TX, but have called Pflugerville home for the last 10 years. I’ve even attended the same high school in Amarillo as a few of our Residents. I’m known to them as Dandy Sandie. It’s great having so many connections with Residents—they are my second family.
I’m married with a son, and have a tremendous love for cooking.
I am truly blessed to be a part of a great organization. Wells Point Lodge is just a super place to be and I look forward to many more years here.x
