Hello! My name is Kelly Newcomer. I grew up in Newell, PA and graduated from Frazier High School in 1993. I have a diploma from Duff's Business Institute in Medical Insurance Billing and Coding, and am currently working on my Bachelor's Degree in Psychology from California University of PA. I currently live in Blainsburg, PA and have 3 amazing children ages 12, 14, and 16.
My grandmother was diagnosed with dementia in 2012 which inspired me to work with seniors, making the last moments of their lives enjoyable! I started as a Program Assistant at the Center In The Woods Adult Day Center, where my grandmother was attending. I eventually became the Activity and Fundraising Coordinator. From there, I was the Director of Maplewood Adult Day Center, then the Memory Care Director of a Personal Care Home in Bridgeville.
I am extremely excited to begin my employment at Hillside Estates as Activity Director, and to bring my ideas and experience along with me! I am anxious to meet the residents and their families, and to learn as much as I can about what they love and enjoy! Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your community!
