  • Kristen Melle

    Activities Director

    There’s never a dull moment with Kristen around. She loves her role in keeping our residents happy and productive through whichever activities inspire them. While our residents benefit from her experience in public relations and event planning, she says she continually benefits from their wisdom and life lessons. A graduate of Merrimack College, she is also a yoga instructor, cat lover, wife, and proud mom.

  • Marie Chapman

    Kitchen Manager & Head Chef

    The delicious aromas, tantalizing selection, and beautiful dining experience at 1000 Southern Artery are due to Marie’s artistry, culinary talent and dedication. She’s been working here for over 14 years but hesitates to call it “work,” because the residents and staff feel so much like family.  When she’s not making magic in our kitchen, she enjoys traveling and spending time with her children and grandchildren.

  • Cheryl Crooks

    Beauty Shop Manager

    Cheryl grew up around the corner from 1000 Southern Artery, watching our community grow and improve since she was a girl. That young girl soon discovered a career in beauty and has spent the last 29 years making our residents look and feel their best at our in-house salon. She enjoys spoiling her cat, and rooting for the Pats and Red Sox.
