Community Director RN at the Gardens of Hartford
Kristy joined CFS team at The Gardens of Hartford in November 2017 as the facility nurse. She transitioned into the Community Director position where she supports and manages the facility as well as providing nursing support.
Kristy gained her BSN nursing degree at Carroll College in 2005. During her nursing career she worked in clinic settings and assisted-living facilities. She was blessed to join the team at The Gardens of Hartford and finds the work and impact it makes on the residents incredibly rewarding. Kristy feels it is an honor to be part of such an amazing team that provides care to those who are in need of assistance. She is grateful for the residents and families that allow The Gardens staff to provide care to their loved ones.
Kristy believes in educating her staff to provide the best care possible for residents. One of The Gardens goals is to keep residents as independent as possible. Staff are here to help enhance the well-being of residents and lovingly remind them, “if you don’t use it you lose it.” That motivation keeps them active and going.
