Hey! I was born and raised in New Ulm, MN. I received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Communication Studies as well as a Gerontology Minor from Minnesota State University (Mankato) I have worked in the Healthcare field for about 7 years now; all in long-term care.
Things I like to enjoy outside of work: going to the lake, exploring Minneapolis, hanging out with friends and family, watching Hockey, and spending summer days on the lake.
I am grateful to have such an opportunity to be working in an environment where I am surrounded by the work I love to do on a daily basis. It is my personal desire to ensure our community is appealing and one that our residents feel proud to call home. As your director it is a passion of mine to be an advocate for our residents, friends, and families. Our passion doesn’t only extend to our residents, but family, friends and staff as well.
I graduated from Springfield High School, I worked five years as a medical lab tech before becoming a nurse. I have a deep passion for nursing, helping, and taking care of people. I bring 12 years of long-term care experience beginning with volunteer work at my hometown nursing home when I was 13. I’ve worked primarily in memory care during my time in various nursing homes and assisted livings. Having worked as a CNA for the last 10 years has allowed me to really get to understand geriatrics on a different level as well as working with their families. I am eager to be an advocate for not just my residents and their families, but my staff as well. I am very excited to be in a position where I will be able to help make the team, family members, and community member’s work as one for the best possible care of our residents.
Hi! My name is Kelsi Wahl; I am the Lead Care Manager for Woodstone Senior Living in New Ulm MN! I grew up in southern Minnesota with my three sisters! After high school I spent four years travelling and going to school. I am now a full time nursing student at Minnesota State University- Mankato, where I live with my soon to be husband and our dogs! I coach volleyball at Mankato West High School and have always had a love for travel and outdoor recreation. I plan to further my career into physician assisting and believe the skills I have and will continue to learn are a beneficial asset to Woodstone. I am excited for the changes taking place and look forward to what lies ahead!
Hi, I was born and raised in New Ulm, MN. I have been in the Food Service Industry since 2001. In 2010, I graduated from Oregon Culinary Institute of Portland. My passion for cooking has lead me to run and work in all types of kitchens. I have cooked for and catered weddings, prepared European dishes in a fine dining restaurant, and also served up to 1200 people in a day in a private college setting.
I enjoy working for Woodstone; for the last 9 months I have been trying so many new things each and every week with new menu options. I feel that the residents at Woodstone are all “country folks” and most grew up on “meat & potatoes”: There is nothing better than to make them feel at home again by replicating the warm home cooked meals from their past.
I am the new Activity Director for Woodstone Senior Living in New Ulm. I come to Woodstone with over 20 years of experience in the healthcare field, both in clinical and administrative backgrounds. I hold a degree in Health Information Technology and several other certificates related to the health care field. I am hoping to bring an active lifestyle to our residents here at Woodstone. My goal is to keep them engaged through in-house activities as well as keeping them involved in our community events. I will be tailoring programs to meet the specific needs of our residents and the things that they enjoy doing. I look forward to the adventures and memories to come!
