Like the rivers that run through the Texas Hill Country, EdenHill Communities is moving forward. Progressive amenities, inspiring services, and fresh living arrangements are underway for a future rich with hope. Our Board of Directors supports the entire EdenHill Community to ensure quality and compassion is not just a requirement, but a way of living. Our dedication to faith, heritage, community, comfort, and value is ensured through the distinguished Board of Directors who support EdenHill Communities:
Wendy Carpenter – CEO and Executive Director
I am honored to have been selected to serve as EdenHill’s CEO. To be part of a mission driven organization, with a history of serving seniors for over one hundred years, is a privilege and I look forward with excitement towards the future and the countless opportunities before us.
Kellie Stallings – President
I have been in awe of EdenHill’s services since my husband and I first arrived in New Braunfels in 1988. My father-in-law also benefited from the care received through Eden Heights until his death several years ago, and we were touched by the empathy and support we received from EdenHill staff during that time. I am especially excited about the expansion of the continuum of care offered through EdenHill, particularly for active seniors and for individuals and families who are coping with diseases that impact memory. While senior care is new to me professionally, I believe my background in the non-profit field will provide support and a fresh perspective as the organization plans a strong path into the future.
Linda Lange – Immediate Past-President
Through decades of volunteering and serving on boards, I have witnessed and experienced how non-profit organizations endeavor to enhance the quality of life for those they serve. EdenHill Communities’ care for those with the mixed blessing of outliving their funds follows Jesus in loving our neighbors as we love ourselves. With the upgrade to the only Continuing Care Retirement Community between Austin and San Antonio, EdenHill took a leap of faith which I wholeheartedly support.
Joyce Fox – First Vice President
I am so honored to have been asked to serve on the Board of Directors for the Eden Hill Communities. Throughout my career as an RN I have always preferred working with the elderly, Once I received my Masters in Counseling with a specialization in Gerontology, I was introduced to Hospice and Home Health programs and this has been my passion for the last several years. I initiated a home health and hospice program for the Christus system in Corpus Christi. Eventually I had the opportunity to assume the Executive Director position at Hope Hospice in New Braunfels. I worked closely with Eden Home staff and administration to provide hospice services to residents in their facilities. I have always admired the dedication and excellent care our patients received. I look forward to the opportunity to see this non-profit organization grow and continue meeting the needs of the elderly in our community.
Hamish Storrar – Second Vice President & Treasurer
I am honored to be asked to serve on the Board. After a career in project management and operations integrity management, I look forward to participating in the future development of EdenHill.
Rev. Scott Martin – Secretary
I feel honored and blessed to be on the Board of Directors, especially because of its historical connection to the United Church of Christ. I’ve been pastor of Faith U.C.C. in New Braunfels for 13 years and many of my members are residents of EdenHill Communities.
I am proud to have been asked to serve on the Board of EdenHill Communities. EdenHill has been a part of New Braunfels my entire life. My father was a doctor here for 52 years and during that time, had many patients at what was then Eden Home. He often commented on the quality of the care his patients received and how fortunate we were to have Eden Home in our community. My mother was a resident at the Pinnacle for many years and very much enjoyed living there. While visiting her, I was able to see first hand how friendly and helpful both the residents and staff are. I am happy to have the opportunity to work with the other members of the board to help Eden Hill continue its mission of service to our community.
Rusty Brockman is the Mayor of New Braunfels, TX. Rusty retired as Director of Economic Development at The Greater New Braunfels Chamber of Commerce, where he served for 17 years. He also worked in public education for 28 years; 15 of those were with the Comal ISD as campus assistant principal, principal and central office administrator. Rusty is actively involved in continuing the development of higher education, workforce training and business development opportunities in New Braunfels and Comal County, Texas.
I am pleased to have been asked to become a member of the EdenHill Board of Directors. Since we moved permanently to New Braunfels fourteen years ago, I have concentrated my volunteer efforts on the library, serving six years on the library advisory board, three of them as its president. I am now serving on the library foundation board for my fourth and final year. And I will continue to be a member of the Friends of the Library and work in the bookstore. But I am looking forward to new challenges at EdenHill, all the more so as my husband and I are now on the waiting list to become part of the EdenHill community ourselves.
David Ho Pak, M.D.
I feel privileged to have been asked to serve on the Eden Hill Board of Directors. I am Board Certified in Internal Medicine with over 20 years of experience in patient care and I have a special passion for caring for the frail and the elderly. I strongly believe that healthcare needs to be disrupted and hopeful that we can be part of the many solutions that will soon be innovated. Previously I have had the pleasure of owning and operating numerous ambulatory clinics, house call program, hospitalist group, transitional care, wellness center, and tele-health company. I look forward to working with everyone at Eden Hill Board of Directors.
EdenHill has accomplished wonderful things for my family. My uncle moved into Assisted Living in 2005 later moved Skilled Nursing Care. His care was exceptional till his passing in 2010. My mother was a charter resident in the Pinnacle. Later in 2020 she moved to rehab and later Skilled Nursing Care. I can’t say enough good things about the quality of her care she received till her passing this year. Now, I am honored to give my time and talent to EdenHill Communities serving on the Board of Directors.
As I navigate my own Senior Years, I realize more and more the important part Eden Hill plays in this community. It touches so many lives, from its residents, to its employees, their families and friends, as well as our neighbors dealing with life-changing decisions about the future. I hope my 40 years in corporate America will bring its own set of insights as I serve on the Board of Directors. Eden Hill is a local treasure we must protect and nourish for the benefit of all.
