Karen Dobson

Executive Director

It has been an honor for me to work with Fosters over the years. I have worked with them for a total of 24 years, both in skilled nursing, and residential care. I’m excited to be a part of opening a new community which includes assisted-living, memory care and independent living. If I could say one thing about working with the Fosters, although there are many good things to say, I would have to say how loyal they are to their employees. As an administrator, I appreciate that, and I strive to follow that same rule with my own team members. I am very thankful to work at Springhouse Village of Springfield East, and grateful for the trust our residents, families and team members put in us and the vast amount of knowledge that the Fosters share with us.

Lisa Wells

Business Office Manager

I started my journey with Foster Senior Living in January 2020 where I served as Human Resources support at our corporate office. This time provided me with some knowledge, understanding and experience that led me to now serve as the Business Office Manager at Springhouse Village. Whether it be assisting one of our residents (my favorites), a family member or fellow staff member, each day brings new opportunities to me and I am loving being a part of this wonderful organization .

I am so proud to be a member our Springhouse Village team!


Alex Miller

Memory Care Director

I entered the health care industry 25 years ago and have truly enjoyed every minute of it. I love working with the senior population and have gained incredible wisdom from each patient and resident I have worked with through the years. I began as a hospital social worker where I transitioned through each department. I then moved to rehab and long-term care where I learned the true gift of building relationships with the residents. I am delighted to have the opportunity to continue to build these strong relationships with both residents and family members within the Springhouse Village Touch of Grace Memory Care Community.

At home, I enjoy spending time with my husband and 2 dogs while looking for opportunities to sneak into the lives of my two college-aged sons.

Carrie White

Activities Director

People are my passion! I have worked in the senior living industry for over 12 years, and I can’t imagine doing anything else. Each day that I can make someone smile is a day I count as a success.

When I’m not at work I’m usually reading, drinking coffee, talking to my houseplants, or spending time with my wonderful husband and our two dogs and five cats.

Life is a beautiful gift, and I’m so grateful I get to spend mine serving people. What a joy it is to work for such an amazing company for people I love- with people I love!
