Katrin Feick

Executive Director

Avita of Stroudwater’s goal for all of our residents and associates is to, “Live Well, Love Life.” With this mission and vision it is my pleasure to be a support system for families and caregivers. I take great pride in my associates and team members as they keep our residents engaged, and provide a high quality of life to them.

Lea Rust

Sales Director

In my experience helping families with placement options can be very challenging, not to mention emotional. Being a good listener and sensitive to the emotionality of this process is most important to me. I am passionate about educating those for what is needed now, as well as what we can plan for tomorrow. I am driven by the families and residents I see on a daily basis who are happy, well taken care of, and most importantly enjoying their lives within the community. I am impressed on a daily basis with our associates who are caring for our residents. They motivate me to be better, to do better, and to be proud of Avita of Stroudwater.

Orlene DeMatteo

Resident Care Director

Making a difference in the lives of our residents is my passion. I am so proud to call Avita of Stroudwater home. It is motivating to be surrounded by all who love what we do for our residents. Our goal is to make every day better, putting smiles on all of our faces, and living our lives together as a community.

Paula Schildroth

Business Office Director

From the moment I drove past the Avita of Stroudwater’s “Coming Soon” sign I knew it was meant to be my home. After losing my own grandmother to Alzheimer’s I made the decision that Senior Care was where I was meant to be and I have never looked back. It has been an honor to serve our residents, their families and our associates over the last few years. My heart is full because of it. I am always here and happy to help you in any way I can.

John Caron

Resident Dining Director

I am so excited to be part of the Avita family.  I believe healthy eating contributes to overall happiness and I can’t wait to share my delicious creations with the community!

Alexandria Velez

Program Director

My passion and purpose is working with elders and ensuring that they live their lives to the absolute fullest despite their age, health or ability.  It is my goal to provide daily programs for purposeful engagement that will improve the quality of life in each resident that we have here at Avita. It is wonderful to work in a community where we all have the same goal; to make a positive difference is people’s lives by creating a special place where residents can thrive and families can have peace of mind.  Seeing the smiles on the faces of our residents is what motivates me each day and the reward is great.
