Integral Senior Living names senior executive directors

CARLSBAD, Calif. (Feb. 16, 2023) Integral Senior Living, a premier senior living community management company, recently named Jennifer Lester and Kelly Ainsworth as senior executive directors of their respective communities. 

Lester is the executive director of Sage Spring Senior Living, a senior living community that opened in December 2020. During the pandemic, she played an integral role in helping ISL open the community in a safe, operationally efficient way.  

“Jennifer’s leadership capabilities were evident from the start,” said Collette Gray, president and CEO of Integral Senior Living and Solstice Senior Living. “Under her leadership, Jennifer’s management teams have not only helped Sage Spring become an outstanding place for seniors to call home, but also gone on to assist many other ISL communities in reaching a new level of success.” 

Ainsworth currently serves as the executive director for Parkview on Hollybrook. Joining the community in 2020, he immediately began to work on rebuilding the foundation of the leadership team and programming. His efforts have paid off as the community has improved its care department, culinary department and sales department. The community also boasts one of the strongest Vibrant Life® programs across ISL’s portfolio, which translates to residents’ being more engaged and fulfilled with their senior living experience. In addition to internal improvements, the community was routinely featured in the local Longview newspaper for their innovative and engaging programming for residents.  

“Kelly and Jennifer continue to be the examples we encourage our community teams to aspire to,” Gray said. “They not only are exceptional role models for our associates, but also move the needle on ISL’s portfolio. With their continued leadership and stewardship, the future for ISL continues to be bright.”
