Meet the Team
Jolene Farish, a San Diego native, began her career as a social worker at a 122-bed assisted living community for the memory-impaired. She later moved on to positions such as the director of resident and family services and executive director for an assisted living home. Farish comes from a family with a rich professional background in social services, which helped her shape her view of the world and has empowered her to become a leader in the service industry, specifically to the elderly population. As a result of her work in the senior living industry, she has received the Rising Star, Community of the Year and Administrator of the Year awards.
Director of Sales and Marketing
Kelsi Walts has been with Las Villas del Norte Senior Living for three years and has worked in the senior care industry for 13 years. She started her career as a caregiver and worked her way up from that role to community relations assistant, to sales director, and finally, to our director of Sales and Marketing here at Las Villas del Norte.
Kelsi grew up in San Diego and throughout her life found herself interacting with and helping seniors. “To this day, I do not believe there is anything else in this world that I could enjoy more than helping seniors every day,” Kelsi said.
Kelsi and her husband have been married for 10 years. Together they have two children and spend most of their time outside of work with their families. They enjoy riding ATVs in the desert and boating at the river and lakes.
