At Evergreen Place Supportive Living, our team of dedicated, compassionate caregivers cover an array of specialties, bringing expertise and joy to Streator.
Kristie Finney, Director
I am married and have two 2 children; an 11-year-old son and a 7-year-old daughter. I have worked in long-term Care for the last 14 years as a Business Office Manager, Community Relations Coordinator and a Regional Marketing Director, and I absolutely love working with seniors. I am very blessed to be a part of this great team at Evergreen Place serving the seniors of our community. I look forward to working with you and providing all the wonderful services Supportive Living offers!
Deana Ondrey, Wellness Coordinator.
I started in the healthcare field in 2008 as a CNA at Heritage Health and Evergreen Place in Streator. In 2013 I earned my Associates degree in Nursing from IVCC. After earning my degree, I had the pleasure of working as the restorative nurse at Heritage Health for 3 years. I then took a short break from the geriatric community and worked as a school nurse. However, it didn’t take me long to realize that I missed the very place where my career began. I am grateful and blessed to be part of the Evergreen team. I look forward to serving Streator and the surrounding communities.
Kaitlan VanHamme, Community Resource Coordinator
I am the Community Relations Coordinator here at Evergreen Place Supportive Living. I recently moved to Ottawa where I now live on the family farm. We have several chickens and ducks, four cats and a dog. I previously worked in jewelry sales for 11 years in my hometown of Freeport, IL. I enjoy getting to know new people and establishing a trusting relationship. My favorite part of my job is learning all about our residents and potential residents and the lives that they have lived.
Laura Nimke, Life Enrichment Coordinator
I am the Life Enrichment Coordinator at Evergreen Place in Streator. I am blessed to be a part of the “fun” at Evergreen Place. I plan activities, recreation, outings, brain fitness, crafts, complete personal shopping and so much more. I absolutely love the time that I am able to spend with our residents, both one-on-one and in group settings. I truly consider them to be my friends and a second family. Outside of work, my 8-year-old daughter keeps me quite busy. I was born and raised right here in Streator, so I have strong ties to our community.
Linda Dawson, Administrative Services Coordinator
Twenty-three years ago I met my husband and moved near Streator. I began my career in the banking and finance sector. Most recently I assisted people with their financial needs and acquiring services that helped them live independently. With this past experience and my degree in health services administration I will continue helping the residents at Evergreen Place with their financial needs. I am happy to be part of an amazing team here at Evergreen Place in Streator. I look forward to helping you and your family in every way I can. I can't wait to meet you!
Greg Schmitt, Building Services Coordinator
I am the Building Services Coordinator at Evergreen Place in Streator. I have been with Evergreen Place for 7 years now. I have lived in Streator all of my life. My favorite part of my job is doing whatever I can for our residents. You find out that sometimes the smallest jobs or things you do for them means the most to them. My job has its days but most of the time it is rewarding.
Kourtney Brewer, Receptionist
I originally started at Heritage Health in 2016 working in the dietary department, serving meals and waitressing. Recently I became the Evergreen Receptionist and am very grateful for the opportunity to serve the residents in a different capacity! I am the first person you see when you come into our building. I always look forward to meeting new faces and will greet you with a warm smile. I love working with the residents and seeing them day to day and looking forward to the advice they have for me. Working for Evergreen is like having ONE BIG FAMILY. Everyone here is wonderful!
I was born and raised in Streator; I have been with my wonderful husband for 9 years. In our home, we have a 2 year old golden retriever and a 6 year old golden retriever. They are our babies and we love spending time with them.
