Kristie Finney, Director

I have been the Director here at Evergreen Place since 2017. I am married and have a son and a daughter who keep me very busy outside of work. I have worked in long-term care since 2003 and have been a Business Office Manager, Community Relations Coordinator, and 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 in our community. I look forward to helping you and showing you all the wonderful services Supportive Living offers!

Veronica Gonzalez, Wellness Coordinator

I have been in the nursing field since graduating from IVCC in 2012. I put my nursing degrees to use at St. Mary’s Hospital, OSF St. Elizabeth Medical Center, The Center for Outpatient Medicine and the Pontiac Correctional Center. I have lived in Streator for over 20years and I am happy to be working back in this community doing what I love. Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my husband, my son, and my 3 daughters.

Kaitlan Van Hamme, Community Relations Coordinator

A couple years ago I moved to Ottawa, where I currently reside on our family farm. We have a house full of animals that keep me very busy. I worked previously in jewelry sales for 11 years in my hometown of Freeport, IL. I enjoy getting to know new people and establishing a trusting relationship with them. I am so grateful for the many faces I get to meet through my position here at Evergreen Place. My favorite part of my job in learning all about our current and future residents and the lives they have lived.

Laura Nimke

Laura Nimke, Administrative Services Coordinator

I started in 2017 as the Life Enrichment Coordinator here at Evergreen Place. I loved bringing the “fun” to our residents here and getting to know each one of them on a personal level. I now enjoy helping our future residents with their transition to Evergreen as well as assisting our current residents with their business office needs. Outside of work, my daughter keeps me on my toes and pretty busy.

Dan, Building Services Coordinator

Daniel Danko, Building Services Coordinator

I am the Building Service Coordinator here at Evergreen Place. I have been married since 2019 and we spend a lot of our time outside of work working on things around our house. I really enjoy landscaping and yardwork and love having the opportunity to beautify Evergreen Place for our residents. I have lived in Streator my whole life and enjoy giving back to our community. I am Vice President for “Light Up Streator” and sit on the 4th of July committee, which also keep me very busy outside of work. I look forward to spending more time and helping our residents and getting to know them more.

I have worked for Evergreen Place in dietary since 2013. I have enjoyed my transition to Life Enrichment Coordinator. Planning activities for our residents is so much fun. Spending personal time with each resident is so rewarding and I love getting to know more and more about them each day. Outside of work my husband, 4 children and 7 grandchildren keep me very busy.
