Hi, I’m Jammie Barquilla, the Community Administrator here at Hilltop Commons. I have worked at Hilltop Commons since 1997 in a variety of different roles, with my most recent being the Activities Director and now the Community Administrator. Working with the residents and community brings me great joy. I have lived in beautiful Nevada County my whole life and there is nowhere else I would rather be!
Hi! I'm Traci Gelgood, the Marketing Director at Hilltop Commons. I've been part of the Hilltop family since 2015. I love working here, and especially enjoy working with all of the residents! I have been in the hospitality industry for almost 30 years, with a focus on sales and marketing, and this is the most rewarding and fulfilling part of my career to date! I enjoy showing our beautiful community to potential residents, and I love helping the residents who already call Hilltop Commons their home.
Hi, I’m Jill Mahanna, the Activities Director at Hilltop Commons. I love working and playing with the residents here and filling our days with fun and enriching activities, lots of laughter, and real connection. In addition to this wonderful job, I am a professional artist, a happy wife, and the mother of two children (and some fur and feather babies). I have been a resident of Nevada County for thirty years and I enjoy the outdoors, being busy, and my job here at Hilltop!
Head of Maintenance
Hi, I’m Kelly Nevius, a multi-talented maintenance man who was blessed to have grown up in Nevada County. Along with being outdoors, I love the challenge of fixing almost everything. I am happy to help the Hilltop residents with their maintenance needs, and occasionally I am lucky enough to be able to entertain everyone with a song.
Hi, I’m Andrea Wheeler, the Housekeeper at Hilltop Commons. I am proud to say I was born and raised right here in Nevada County. I have 5 wonderful children, 10 grandchildren and 4 great-grandchildren. I have been working at Hilltop Commons over 20 years and for Ray Stone Inc. for the past 10 years. I love what I do and enjoy working with the seniors!
