We’d love to introduce you to Kristi Breakall, our new Life Enrichment Director here at The Retreat at Sunny Vista. Kristi was born and raised in North Texas. She graduated from Texas A&M University and holds an LPN license. She has been in senior living for 10 years. Kristi volunteers with the Colorado Springs chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association and is currently the marketing chair for the area’s Walk to End Alzheimer’s.
Kristi is married with three adult children and two puppies. She loves to hike on her time off. She and her husband moved to Colorado three-and-a-half years ago as empty nesters to pursue their dream of living on the Front Range.
Kristi shared this background into her involvement in senior living: “I love working with older adults because I truly feel it’s a calling. I was very close to my grandparents and working with older adults reminds me of the happiness they brought to my life. I love looking at all the old black and white pictures in their rooms and seeing them in their youth and remembering that they were once young, vibrant and contributors to our society – and now contribute in different ways. It makes me happy to make them happy.”
