Passionate about senior living

The Leadership Team at Stoney River Ramsey is committed to making senior living a compassionate, enjoyable and healthy experience for our residents and their families.

In college, Kelsey worked with people who had traumatic brain injuries. She fell in love with helping others live their most independent and self-directed lives. Kelsey has collaborated with state agencies and advocated for positive change in the human services industry. As a champion of individual’s rights and person-centered care, Kelsey ensures residents receive the highest quality care.

At age 15, after Violet’s first day of volunteering at a local assisted living community, she told her mom, “I found my vocation!” Violet studied Gerontology in college and built a career in senior care. Born and raised in Minnesota, Violet loves camping, cooking and traveling. “I love the work that I do and the relationships built along the way,” says Violet.

VIVA! Life Coordinator
Julie Todd

My motto: I work where the residents live; they do not live where I work! Throughout my teen and college years, I worked at nursing homes and in-home care. Today, with an associate degree in accounting, I’m happy to be on the business side of senior living. St. Cloud is home for me and my husband. We have two grown children, one grandson, and a granddaughter on the way!
