Our team here at Hickory Ridge is filled with amazing individuals that put their all into making our facility feel like a home for our residents. The activities department has the important job of putting together events and activities that keep residents entertained and engaged. Katie Svec, Hickory Ridge's Activities Director, leads her team with compassion, always finding fun ways to get our residents active.

Get to the know Katie and why she loves being in activities!

Katie Svec - Activities Director

“I got into Activities on accident. I’d always been involved with marketing and events in my previous positions and was told about this opportunity. I wasn’t sure if it would be a good fit, but once I got here, I absolutely fell in love with the residents. All day my team and I get to plan activities to improve the quality of their lives. It is an understatement to say we all feel incredibly lucky that Hickory Ridge gave us this opportunity.”

Katie goes above and beyond for the residents. She has wonderful ideas, and the residents look forward to seeing her and her team every day.
