Jake’s family has lived in the Cedar Rapids/Marion area for four generations. Born in Kuwait, where his parents worked for several years, Jake was raised in Marion, less than a mile from Grand Living. This gave him many opportunities to explore the preserve before it was called “the preserve.” In high school, Jake discovered he enjoyed helping customers with all of their service needs, which led him into jewelry sales for over 15 years. Listening is the heart of customer service, and something he excels in. Ready for a new experience, Jake was pleased to be selected to serve the great residents at Grand Living at Indian Creek. He enjoys meeting new people and learning their stories, a trait that makes Grand Living a perfect fit.
“People save for retirement all their lives. Retirement is a time to give back to themselves and enjoy a beautiful environment with wonderful food, entertainment, and activities. I am proud to be part of something that gives to a generation that is so deserving.”

TERI KELEHER, RN/BS
Director of Health and Wellness
A native of northeast Iowa, Teri is a registered nurse with a Bachelor’s in Health Care Administration, and has worked in nursing for almost 30 years. Her passion for nursing started early, as she cared for her disabled brother and wanted to continue helping people live their best possible lives. She began her career in OB and NICU, and worked in that field for seven years. When Teri’s family moved to Monticello to start their own jewelry business, she began working in home health and public health for the county, eventually transitioning to a management role and working in a hospital setting as a transition liaison to help patients transition from hospital to home. She had supervised and mentored nurses and home health aides while working in a home health setting for almost 20 years. Teri has three grown children and a dog. In her spare time, she loves reading, biking, traveling, concerts, and spending time with family and friends.
“I am excited to work for Grand Living because I love their vision, foundation and principles in how they want their community to be and how they want their residents to feel. The staff here is a very cohesive family to work with. I also get to love on residents every day and treat them like family. I want to help them live their best lives every day.”
Jessica is a native of Minnesota, but has been a resident of Cedar Rapids for the past 15 years. She has a lifetime of experience in the senior industry. Growing up in a small, rural town, Jessica’s parents both worked at the local assisted living community. She spent many days volunteering and visiting with the residents there, and says she can vividly remember her first “best friends,” Steve and Joe, who were both in their 80s. She worked as a Certified Nursing Assistant throughout high school and college. After graduating with a BS in Athletic Training & Sports Medicine from South Dakota State University, Jessica managed a fitness center in South Dakota which catered to seniors, assisting them with basic health and fitness, physical therapy, and gait training/balance. After moving to Cedar Rapids in 2004, Jessica practiced real estate and once again her passion for working with seniors followed her as she eventually specialized in helping seniors downsize out of their large homes into a condo or smaller home. After finally realizing that her true calling was to enrich the lives of the seniors in her community, Jessica chose to pursue a career working directly with seniors on a daily basis. Over the past 7 years, she has held roles as a Community Relations Coordinator as well as an Activity Coordinator. Jessica is passionate about creating programs and activities that improve the quality of life for the seniors she serves.
“I cherish the daily opportunities I have to build meaningful relationships and create quality activities that result in unique and memorable experiences that fulfill each resident’s wishes and needs.”
Originally from the Pacific Northwest, Chef Michael Mitchell discovered his love of cooking at a young age during family holiday gatherings. Instead of watching football, he preferred to be in the kitchen helping to prepare the feast, but the desire to do it professionally didn’t hit him right away. It wasn’t until after some wandering, soul searching and returning home from a six-month mission in Uganda that Michael decided to pursue a career in the culinary arts, something he truly had a passion for.
After completing Culinary School in 2001, Michael went to work at Etta’s Seafood, a restaurant owned by Seattle Celebrity Chef and James Beard Award Winner Tom Douglas. It was there that he learned the value of using the freshest locally produced ingredients to create the best food possible.
In the years that followed, Michael furthered his culinary portfolio in Savannah, GA, and Chicago, as well as owning his own chocolate confection and catering business.
Michael is thrilled to bring his experience and influence to the culinary program at Grand Living at Indian Creek. It is his goal, along with the rest of the culinary staff, to create memorable dining experiences, which are nutritious and nurturing, for the ladies and gentlemen who call this “home.”
Michael currently lives in Cedar Rapids with his wife, three children and obnoxious dog.
