Karla Hunt, Administrator
Karla Hunt earned a BS in English and psychology at Portland State University in 1982, and worked in the banking and finance industry from 1980 to 1998. It was while serving senior citizen banking clients in an Oregon retirement community that she discovered her passion for advocating for seniors.
In 1999 she decided to follow her heart and make a career change. She spent a year as administrator-in-training for a Northwest-based operator of long-term senior care facilities, including serving as interim human resources director, social service director and activities director. In 2000 she earned her Graduate Certificate in Gerontology from Portland State. From 2000 to 2006 she served as administrator at a residential care center in Molalla, Oregon.
Karla joined the Pinnacle team in 2006, and is happy to be working close to her home in Hubbard. She is eager to get involved in community activities and organizations.
Jessica Ryan, RN, Director of Nursing Services
Jessica was hired as director of nursing services in 2011 after a long career in health care dating back to 1993. Prior to that, Jessica worked as a teacherís assistant and had aspirations of a career in early childhood education. But she stumbled into health care after applying for a nursing assistant program, and the rest, she says, is history.
A graduate of Portland Community College, Jessica has earned a bevy of certifications throughout her career (CNA, RA, CMA, RN, SNF and RCM). Her favorite part about her job is making people smile. In her free time, she enjoys maintaining her property and being with loved ones.
