Meet the Team
Executive Director: Lynne Powell
I was born and raised in Kentucky, only living outside the state for about a year when I lived in New Orleans to complete my dietetic internship at Alton Ochsner Medical Foundation. I returned to Kentucky and started my career as a Registered Dietitian. Although I enjoyed clinical work, I soon moved into a management position and decided motivating and leading individuals was more my style.
I have been in health care for 33 years, working specifically in senior living for over 25 years. I have managed Independent Living, Assisted Living, Personal Care and Memory Care Communities. I took a brief break while caring for family members terminal with metastatic breast cancer and Alzheimer’s. Watching my father-in-law become debilitated with Alzheimer’s and the devasting effects on our family, I realized specializing in this field was my gift and calling.
I have two wonderful children. Griffin and his wife are UK graduates and Mechanical Engineers for Toyota currently living in Japan. Jessica (Transylvania University graduate) and her husband (U of L graduate) live closer to home in Simpsonville. Jessica is a Behavior Therapist Technician working for Maryhurst and Treasure Home. She is working on her masters and thoroughly enjoys working with these special young girls.
One additional passion is my love for sloths. I have been infatuated for years – I think I started the trend. If I win the lottery, I will purchase my very own three-toed sloth. The mission of Charter Senior Living is perfect: To Enhance the Human Spirit. I try to live every day fulfilling this mission, at work and in my personal life.
Director of Sales and marketing: Kieleigh Cote
Kieleigh is a Louisville native, Assumption High School graduate and University of Louisville alumna. She has spent the past 6 years serving families and seniors. Kieleigh’s affinity for seniors stems from providing care for her grandmother who was diagnosed at an early age with Early-Onset Alzheimer’s Disease. Kieleigh made the decision to call Park Louisville home back in January 2021 and continues to feel blessed to have the opportunity to serve our most vulnerable population. She prides herself on being there for families every step of the way, knowing firsthand how caring for someone with dementia can be. On her off days she enjoys spending time outside at the Parklands with her husband Alex, and two kids, as well as their two rescue dogs.
Health and Wellness Director: Melissa Mull
I have recently set sail with Charter Senior Living of Park Louisville
I started working with seniors as a teenager. I organized a youth group that assisted seniors with chores around their homes. Even at a young age I had a desire to advocate for the aging population. As leader of that youth group, I was able to petition for, obtain and deliver fans to senior citizens in need of them. I went on to become an EMT, a certified nursing assistant, and eventually a nurse. I have been a nurse now for 27 years and was awarded the statewide nurse of the year in 2013. Helping seniors navigate whatever storm in life they may be experiencing is my passion. In my spare time, I enjoy playing chess with my son, watching movies with my husband, and loving on my dog Luke.
Dining Services Director: Angel McCoy
I was born and raised in North Carolina and moved to Kentucky in 2010. I have an extensive background in culinary management. I have a passion for cooking. I remember starting as a little girl side by side cooking in the kitchen with my aunt. From there I utilize some of her recipes and started cooking. As I got older, I realized food and socializing make people happy. My passion for seniors stems from caring for my parents, after that I knew that caring for seniors was my calling. I made the decision to merge my love for seniors and my passion for cooking. I have been with Park Louisville serving seniors for the past 14 years. Meals are what our residents look forward to the most. I continue to wake up each day passionately about providing our residents with enjoyable nutritious meals.
Life Enrichment Assistant: Lisa Hagerty
I am Lisa Hagerty, the Life Enrichment Assistant for Park Louisville. I’ve been working with Seniors dealing with dementia for over 25 years through home health services, adult day programs, and senior living facilities. I have an Economics degree from Centre College but have always had a calling to serve the elderly. This led to my decision to go back to school where I received my Master of Social Work from the University of Louisville with an emphasis in Geriatric care. Seeing people with Dementia thrive is my passion. As the Life Enrichment Assistant, I provide the residents with a fun filled day of activities that stimulate their minds and their bodies. We enjoy exercising, playing cornhole, making crafts, singing, and dancing, and going on bus trips. When one of our activities or discussions sparks a memory and brings a smile to a resident, it is the best part of my day.
