Kelly Koester

Divisional Operations Specialist

Kelly Koester started her career in senior living in 2006 as an activity director. Although she came to this later in life, Kelly quickly grew to love working with the senior population, especially those with dementia. She obtained her Community Residential Care Facility (CRCF) administrator’s license and became a Certified Dementia Practitioner. She has specialized in turning troubled communities around and enjoys building teams of caring, awesome people to run communities.

Kelly lives in the beautiful Santee Cooper area of South Carolina on the edge of Santee State Park with her husband and one very spoiled Dachshund. She and her husband enjoy antiquing and crafting. On the weekends, they can be found poking around antiques stores searching for midcentury treasures or in the local craft stores buying supplies for their next project.
