To ensure we are assisting every senior with the utmost care at Evergreen Senior Living, we have put together a caring team of dedicated staff and coordinators, to keep our community as a frontrunner in senior care. Our senior care campuses run smoothly due to our comprehensive approach and seamless communication.
One thing each of our staff members emphasizes is their love of their job! This passion enables them to be positive influence, handle needs with excellence and provide a joyful living environment!
Johna McFadden, Director
I joined the Evergreen Senior Living Family in 2015 as the Legacy Coordinator. I received the honor of becoming the Director of Evergreen Senior Living in 2017. I am originally from Western Kentucky and currently live in Decatur. I have used my Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Social Work to find new and inventive ways to care for individuals with dementia. I have spent the majority of my career working with seniors and consider it my passion. When I am not spending time with my residents, I am spending time with my husband and children enjoying the outdoors.
Andrea Robinson, Administrative Services Coordinator
I have worked at Evergreen Senior Living since June of 2014. I was born and raised in Blue Mound, Illinois, and still live there today. Before Evergreen, I worked at Enloe Pharmacy for 10 years training nursing staff in nursing homes on how to complete computerized MDS information. I also worked in the long-term care pharmacy division at Enloe.
A year ago, I added a new (furry) member to my family, Chloe! You can visit her during the week here at Evergreen since I have the pleasure of bringing her to work with me.
My favorite part of my job is meeting and working with the residents and their families and watching my dog, Chloe, bring so much joy to our visitors and residents!
Stacy Kietzman, Legacy Coordinator
I am the Legacy Coordinator and I am thrilled to be part of the team at Evergreen. I have been working with seniors for about 16 years. I have experience as an Activity Director as well as Sales & Marketing. The best part of my job is spending time with our residents and making sure they have a good quality of life while living in our community.
Rachel McElroy, Community Relations Coordinator
I’ve had the pleasure of being on this team since December 2017. I understand that families aren’t looking for just any place for their loved ones; they’re looking for a home and I’m here to make Evergreen feel like home!
Prior to my time with Evergreen, I was the Membership & Marketing Director at the Kankakee Area YMCA. I was born and raised in Kankakee, IL, but moved to Decatur to be with my now husband, Tim, who I met during my 4 years at Millikin University. When I’m not at work, I love simply being at home with my husband and 2 dogs!
Being at Evergreen has been such a joy – I truly love working with seniors and their families!
Bill Kaigley, Building Services Coordinator
I have over four years’ experience at Evergreen Senior Living and over fifteen years’ experience at Decatur Memorial Hospital. My favorite part of my job is the day to day interaction with the residents and helping them to live their lives as worry free as possible and the satisfaction that they know we will take care of all of their needs no matter how big or small.

I began working at Evergreen as the Life Enrichment Coordinator in October 2018. I have an Associate’s Degree in Architectural Drafting and I am also a certified activity director. Prior to working at Evergreen, I worked at Fair Havens Christian Village for 13.5 years in the activity department.
I enjoy spending time with my family! I married to my husband, John and we have 2 sons, Ian & Adam, who are married and blessed us with grandchildren! When I’m not with family or at work, I enjoy crafts, sewing, quilting, reading, gardening and being involved in my church.
I love planning fun activities for our residents. Their smiles, humors and many stories always brighten my day!
Rachel Wilson, Wellness Coordinator
I started working for Evergreen back in March 2018 as a wellness supervisor and returned here in September 2019 as the Wellness Coordinator. Most of my experience is in long term care but I also have acute care, hospice, behavioral health, home health, and family planning experience. I was a CNA for 6 years, an LPN for 15 years and have been an RN for a little over 1.5 years.
I have my Associates degree in Nursing and I’m currently working on my Bachelor of Science in Nursing.
I’m married to my wonderful husband and have 2 daughters, 1 son and 3 dogs. I love to read, travel (especially Caribbean cruises) and go on date nights with my husband!
I love working at Evergreen because of the great staff and residents! They make work fun & exciting!
Paul Maisel, Culinary Services Coordinator
I’ve had the pleasure of beginning my career with Evergreen in October 2019. I have been in the foodservice industry for 25 years. I attended a two year vocational program for Culinary Arts while in high school and then began an apprenticeship. I have done everything from bussing tables to owning and operating full-service restaurants.
When I’m not at work, I love spending time with family, camping, restoring old campers and of course, cooking! I’m married to my wife, Jess, and we have three children: Milo, Vlad and Adaleigh.
I enjoy my time here because meals are such a large part of our lives no matter the age. The staff is very warm and welcoming and I am happy to be a part of the family.
Sabrina Doolin, Employee Services Coordinator
I’ve been with Evergreen since January 2018 first as the receptionist and now as the Employee Services Coordinator. Prior to my time here, I worked for Bodine Services as their Payroll & Accounts Payable Clerk.
During my free time, I love to go boating and watch my son, Jarrett, thrive in basketball, baseball and football at Warrensburg Latham Middle School!
I love coming to work because of the amazing residents and staff. They make every day so much fun!
