Kayla Zellmer, LNHA

I am honored to spend my days with the tenants, residents and team that make up the Northridge Village Community.  Each day brings a new opportunity to better someone’s life bringing me a lot of joy.  Outside of work I live in Boone and enjoy spending time with my husband, daughter and our twin boys.

Luke Borst

Marketing Director

I have been in sales for over 20 years, mostly in IT. I determined that I wanted to find more joy and purpose in my work and stumbled upon a sales role in Senior Living. I took a chance and changed the direction of my career. Now I’m addicted. I’ve always enjoyed spending time with seniors and now I get to do it daily. I’m thrilled to be part of the Northridge Village team. There are so many great things happening here. Outside of work I enjoy Broadway shows, museums, lectures, and spending time with my son.

Angie Anderson, RN, RAC-CT

Director of Nursing

I enjoy working at Northridge Village because each and every staff member genuinely shares the desire to care for the elderly as I do myself. I have shared the same compassion since I became a C.N.A. in 2005. Each day is a new adventure and I love that. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my husband and 2 little boys attending their sporting events, riding 4-wheelers and going dirt track racing.

Hi! My name is Danyell Hall. I am the hair stylist here at Northridge Village Salon. I’ve been in the industry for almost 17 years. Each day with the residents is rewarding, and I’m always eager to see them smiling each and every day. I have two daughters and two step-sons. My husband and I reside in Ames. We enjoy trips to Las Vegas and hanging out with family and friends. We also love attending Iowa State football games and cheering on the Cyclones!


Kris Crawford

Activities Director

I would say a couple reasons that stand out to me working here at Northridge are: I have the opportunity to work with some very skilled people who are great teammates as well and the interaction and relationships that are built with our tenants, residents and their families. I live in Story City, love being a Grandma and GO CYCLONES!

I am originally from Minnesota. I moved to Ames with my Wife, Tara, our son, Bryce and daughter Breanna. We moved to Ames in 2005 after falling in love with the Cyclones. Go Cyclones!

Callie Siskow

Assistant Director of Nursing/ MDS Coordinator

I grew up in Terril, a small town in Northwest Iowa, but have lived in Ames for over 20 years. It's the place I now call home. I have been married to my husband Wade for almost 11 years and we have two little girls and a golden-doodle. For fun, I'm all about fitness. I LOVE hot yoga and my Peloton. I walk almost every day to work. My previous role was a hospice nurse so I worked in every facility in the area. I think that Northridge is among the best of them and I've always thought the team here is great which is why I jumped on board.

It's been a privilege to be part of the NRV neighborhood since we opened on 9-1-15. It's an honor to serve the community as an RN. When I'm in my other home, I enjoy keeping up with my 3 kids and their families. My passion is creativity, expressed through art quilts or projects for my granddaughter. It's all good in the neighborhood!
