Our Dedicated Team
Meet the Staff
We are proud to have a tenured team who provides true hospitality and thoughtfulness.
Our amenity rich community is enhanced by a team of staff members who take the time to genuinely understand and integrate an individual’s wishes regarding their living experience.
Hi, I’m Terri Howell, the Community Administrator at Hilltop Commons. Over the years I’ve had the pleasure of serving in a variety of roles at four of our Ray Stone Senior Living communities and my favorite part of each community is hearing the life stories of our residents. Their willingness to share their experiences and advice is a rare gift and one that I treasure with all my heart. I’m a lucky gal!
Hi, I’m Sue Hudson, the Marketing Director at Hilltop Commons. With 35 years of marketing experience, I find working at Hilltop Commons to be a wonderful blessing. Nothing is more satisfying than seeing the residents so happy and stress free. We’re like a big, happy family, we all really care about one another. Hilltop truly enriches the lives of our residents and it’s such a privilege to introduce seniors to Hilltop Commons. There’s lots of fun and life ahead at our community!
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.
Housekeeper and Van Driver
Hi, I’m Andrea Wheeler, the Housekeeper and van driver 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!
Associate Marketing Director
Hi! I'm Traci Gelgood, the Associate 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.
