Our People

Our days are filled with important duties and routines. Yet human connection takes precedence over the necessities of our job descriptions every time. You are why we're here.

We bring varied backgrounds and skills to our roles, but we are all here to love and support you.

Libby Mellinger Executive Director: Libby Mellinger

Libby was born and raised in Indiana and was drawn to the locally owned and operated North Willow community. She received her Activity Director and Certified Nursing Assistant certifications in 2002, and added her Social Services Designee certification in 2004. Libby also served as the Community Relations Director at North Willow before moving into her role as Executive Director.

"North Willow and our residents are home to me. We work hard to make this a place of excellence in every way possible because we care so much about residents and their families. We know their stories and their wishes, and I believe strongly in serving everyone with options that enrich and often change their lives in surprising and positive ways."

Libby is the proud mother of four children and grandmother to one grandson.

Maggie Stordy Community Relations Director: Maggie Stordy

Maggie is a graduate of Purdue with a Bachelor of Science in Public Health and a concentration in Health Policy and Management.

"I've always known I wanted to work in healthcare, but wanted to find a role that allowed me the time to engage with and have a personal impact on people. I love the daily interaction with residents and that I can make a difference in helping them navigate change."

Maggie was born in New Hampshire, spent the first 10 years of her life in the New England area and has lived in Georgia, Texas and Colorado. Her family moved to Westfield in 2015.

Julie Bowen Wellness Director: Julie Bowen

Julie has a nursing degree, has been working in long-term and memory care since 1989, was a dementia instructor and has extensive dementia training, including instruction by Teepa Snow.

"I went to college to become a teacher, originally, but since I was a child, I have always been close to elderly people, and that was where my heart was and is today. They are really the greatest teachers of all. I am here to meet them in their journey and ensure I support our residents and their families, enhancing their quality of life."

Julie is from a family of six and has one son who lives in Oregon.

Kyle Carmichael Director of Culinary Services: Kyle Carmichael

Kyle has an Associate of Applied Science in Culinary Arts from Ivy Tech. He is a Certified Dietary Manager, Certified ServSafe Manager and member of the Association of Nutrition and Foodservice Professionals (ANFP) and American Culinary Federation (ACF), North America's premier chef's association. Before coming to North Willow, Kyle spent 12 years in the casino industry as a Sous Chef, Banquet Chef, Fine Dining Chef and Sports Bar Chef.

"I am a firm believer in treating people the way you would like to be treated. I have a strong passion for food and for using it to connect with people. We are here to serve our residents, so I also think it's really important to be a good listener and problem solver."

Kyle and his wife, Danielle, will celebrate 14 years of marriage this year. They live in Greenwood and enjoy spending time with their three kids, Ava (11), Macy (9) and Hudson (4), and watching them in archery and gymnastics.
