Team – Evergreen Senior Living

Our Professional Team in Chillicothe

Evergreen Senior Living takes pride in its staff of caregivers who bring years of experience and compassion to our community. Each staff member takes their job seriously, working at a high level of professionalism with unmeasurable kindness. With a director overseeing operations, our entire team of coordinators and staff members continue to make our community a leader in senior care.

All our staff members have several things in common; a love of their jobs and interactions with our seniors. Meet our team today, by scheduling a tour online or call (309) 274-5440!

Kim Batey, Director

Kim has been in the nursing field for 33 years. She knew at an early age working with seniors was her calling. We are so happy to have her as a part of our Evergreen Senior Living family.

Amy Thompson, Community Relations Coordinator

Amy Thompson graduated from Bradley University in 2020 with a bachelor’s degree in management & leadership and social media marketing. Amy currently lives in Chillicothe with her fiancé Justin and their rescue cats, Spirit and Elina, and their dog, Asher. In her free time, she enjoys gardening, hiking, and traveling when possible.

Tina Bankert, Life Enrichment Coordinator

Tina was an activity director for 3 years in long-term care facilities before joining our team as our Life Enrichment Coordinator. She has always been a creative person who wanted her job to positively impact people’s lives in some way. When she began her first Activity Director job after college at Graham Hospital in Canton she knew she had found her lifelong passion. Working with seniors and having her job be to make them smile and have fun has been the most rewarding thing she’s ever done. It’s also a perk that she gets to include all her hobbies in her activity programs. Not only are the residents having fun baking, playing games, and making crafts, but she is too! She has a 9-year-old rescue dog named Wally, a 10-year-old rescue cat named Nutmeg, a stray cat that wandered into her home, and her heart, named Max, and a 3-year-old ornery chinchilla named Luna.
