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.
Linda Lange – 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.
Kellie Stallings – First Vice 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.
Joyce Fox – Second 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 – 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.
Marcia B. McGlothlin – Secretary
I was honored to be asked join the Board of Directors.
At this point in my life, it’s the right thing to do.
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.

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.
Rev. Scott Martin
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.
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.
I am so honored to be part of the “Hill Adventure” that is unfolding at EdenHill. The “former” Eden Home has been a part of our lives for 25 years. The development of The Pinnacle is truly a welcome addition to our community and being a faith-based organization allows the love of Christ to be shared in every area of care and keeps Him at the core. What could be more exciting!
