Madeleine Snore

Care Team Coordinator

Maddy has been with Hope Landing since 2016. She came to Hope Landing fresh from Central Michigan University. Because Maddy had experience in food service at CMU she initially joined Hope Landing in the kitchen. At the time, she thought it would be a year or less tenure. After a while Maddy decided to try being a Caregiver within the business. It was during this time that her heart was really changed and she decided that caring for seniors is what she was meant to do. Maddy has always been a favorite of our residents and has frequently been voted Teammate of the Quarter by her peers.

All of her success lead to her earning her current role as our Care Team Coordinator where she leads our care team. Outside of work Maddy has many hobbies. She has two pups which she loves to snuggle, she enjoys painting, playing cards, watching TV and renovating her 100+ year old farm house.

KELLY VERMILLION

RESIDENT CARE COORDINATOR

Kelly has been with Hope Landing since 2014. She worked as a caregiver with the company for over 6 years. In those years she often said “yes” to new challenges and took opportunities to learn new skills. Saying yes and learning those new skills led her to being selected as our Resident Care Coordinator. Kelly grew up in Charlotte. Prior to working at Hope Landing, Kelly worked over a decade in the retail. Following her time in retail, she spent time at home focusing on her family and being a mom. In her time home, she realized that she is happiest when she is around people. She decided to seek a job that could fill that need, and that is when she began working at Hope Landing. With her caring heart, and love for people…the job and her clicked from the start.

When not working, Kelly enjoys spending time with her family.
