Joel Allen is the new executive director of The Springs at Whitefish. As executive director, Allen manages the various moving pieces that come with operating a senior living community. He ensures residents receive quality service, that the community meets or exceeds financial and regulatory compliance, and the right job candidates are recruited. 

The community provides nearly 75 local jobs and serves more than 80 older adults in Flathead County.

“With his background in healthcare operations and cultivating strong teams, Joel’s skillset will continue a legacy of service and quality at The Springs at Whitefish,” said Nicole Jemming, vice president of operations for The Springs Living. “It is clear that Joel will be an aspirational leader who will empower staff to provide the highest caliber of care and achieve their individual career goals.”

Allen joins The Springs Living after seven years with Logan Health Medical Center in Kalispell, Montana, where he most recently served as a practice manager, overseeing clinic staffing, compliance and patient satisfaction. He also has significant experience as a financial advisor and operations manager. 

Allen has a Master of Science in international finance and business from the University of the West of Scotland in the United Kingdom and a Bachelor of Science in risk management and insurance from the University of Mississippi.
