Ashley Sandoval
Assisted Living Director

I have been a nurse for 10 years now. When I graduated high school I already knew my calling was to be a nurse.  I went straight to college and got started.  During that time I decided to take my first job as a dietary aide for a long term care facility in Hewitt.  I loved working with the geriatric population and knew that was where I was supposed to be.  So I then became a certified nurse aide and was able to be more hands on with the residents.  I worked as a CNA while I continued my education.  Then in 2008 I graduated for McLennan Community College in Waco as a Licensed vocational nurse.  I continued to work at the same facility as a charge nurse then was promoted to a wound care nurse.  In 2009 I decided to take a job offer in Temple at a skilled nursing facility as a wound care nurse.  I worked as a wound care nurse until I was offered a position as the assistant director of nursing in 2013 at a facility in Harker Heights.  In 2014 another opportunity came about and I took a position as the CNA instructor for a Temple facility.  Then in 2016 I was then offered the assistant director of nursing at the facility I was the instructor at.  I loved every position and opportunity I had because I believe it made me a better nurse.  After working in skilled nursing facilities for 16 years I decided I would like a change in pace.  That’s when I decided to join the Stoney Brook team.  It was everything I wanted, a change in pace but yet I would still be able to work with the geriatric population that I loved so much.

 

I love spending my spare time with my family.  I am married to my husband that I have been with for 17 years.  We have two little girls, Khloe that is 7 years old and Zoe that is 3 years old.  I look forward to working at Stoney Brook for many years to come.

Maintenance Director

I have worked for Stoney Brook since November 2015. I have 8 years of maintenance director experience in various facilities. My time at Stoney Brook has been very enjoyable and rewarding. The level of respect from all the staff and team work make it a great community. I have been working on a degree in Business Administration at Colorado Technical University. I have been married to my wife, Melissa for almost 8 years and we have 3 children, Jason, Jr., Hanna and Jordyn. We also have 1 fur baby of 5 years and her name is Sassy as well as 3 horses. In my free time I enjoy coaching softball, camping, bass fishing and spending time with my family.

Melissa Russell
Executive Director

I have been serving at Stoney Brook of Belton seven years. I was born and raised in Temple, TX. After graduating from Temple High School, I later attended Temple College with studies in Human Resources. I have over 20 years of experience in administration and human resources field. In 2014, I received my Texas Assisted Living Management Certification. I’m the youngest of five children. I have one son, Stephen. He’s my joy. In my spare time, I enjoy being with my family, friends, shopping, running, reading and dancing. It’s been a blessing working at Stoney Brook. My mom has Dementia/Alzheimer’s and I’ve been able to learn and understand this awful disease. It’s an education working here. I enjoy coming to work because every day is a new adventure. I love being around our Geriatric population. You become part of their extended family. We have an awesome team!!!

Kay Hirrill
Senior Community Marketing Director

I am a passionate God loving wife and mother of one son. I have lived in the Bell County area for most of my life. I graduated from Moody High School in 1987 and attended Temple College and San Angelo State majoring in Marketing. I have also had various experiences with non-profits and big corporate giants. I was a Regional Team Member for TXU Energy and that position moved me to Sugarland, Texas in 2003. During my time at TXU, I had the incredible opportunity to work with the geriatric population and I quickly realized that I wanted a position in an industry that would allow me to make an instant impact on their lives. In 2013, that opportunity presented itself at Stoney Brook of Belton. Since I joined Stoney Brook, I have the incredible blessing of working and encouraging families through the process of moving out of their current living situation and creating a wonderful new living experience for them here at Stoney Brook of Belton. In my position of Senior Marketing Director I get to work in several markets and no two are alike. I love the challenge of the day to day service we provide to our families. In many instances we become their family and that is an incredible honor. I am a creative thinker, excellent listener and communicator. I have a very strong work ethic and I work very well independently. I have the ability to manage multiple projects and communicate effectively with all levels of our organization. I am able to develop, deliver and train our strategies in all aspects. My mission is strong, bold and simple….continually improve and enhance the daily interaction with each and every resident. I consistently enhance the reputation of Stoney Brook Properties by achieving an environment perceived by our clients in whom they see themselves not as a patient, but rather as members of our extended family. I thrive every day to show passion for what I do!
Instilling trust in how I perform,
Loving kindness for those I serve,
Honesty and integrity in every action I take,
Caring about what I do,
The impact I make in those I serve
