Meet the newest additions to the Wichita Presbyterian Manor leadership team: Cecilia Foster and Cherree Hudspeth.
Cecilia joined the staff in June as the dining services director. She previously worked at Via Christi Village McLean and Via Christi Village Ridge Plaza as the director of nutrition services.
In her role at WPM, Cecilia is responsible for the entire dining services program from independent living in The Landing, Bistro and Waypoint dining rooms to the pantries in healthcare, PATH® (Post-Acute-To-Home) and assisted living areas.
“Every day brings new challenges. I’m always on the go and never have time to get bored,” said Cecilia.
“Bored” isn’t part of Cecilia’s vocabulary. When she’s not at the office, Cecilia enjoys board games, cooking, fiber crafts, gardening and naps.
“I’m married to a wonderful bearded, kilt-wearing guy named Tom and have three grown sons,” she said. They also take care of two dogs, four ducks and two hives of honeybees.
Cherree started working at WPM in August as a sales and admission counselor. She previously worked as the director of marketing at Via Christi Village McLean and knows Cecilia from her time there.
“We both saw a good opportunity and were lucky enough to be chosen to join the [Wichita Presbyterian Manor] team,” said Cecilia.
Here, Cherree is in charge of admissions and marketing for assisted living, memory care, long-term care, and PATH short-term rehabilitation program.
When asked what she likes about her job, Cherree said, “I enjoy meeting the families and being able to help them in their time of need.”
Cherree is the youngest of five girls and enjoys spending her free time with family.
Welcome to the team, Cecilia and Cherree!
