Chris Carter - Windmill Ponds
May 11, 2016
Born and raised in northern Minnesota, Chris Carter found a passion for working with the senior population after leaving the field of higher education. In her transition, she learned that her own values matched that of Vista Prairie Communities (VPC) and she soon joined Vista Prairie at Windmill Ponds as the Executive Director.
Chris received her Bachelor’s degree from Washington State University in Psychology and was the director of admissions at South Dakota School of Mines and Technology in Rapid City, South Dakota before joining VPC. She was also the Housing Director at Deconess Tower in Faribault, Minnesota as well as the Executive Director at River Bend Senior Living in Rochester, Minnesota.
Chris said the people at Windmill Ponds remind her of friends and family she knew growing up. She said “I truly enjoy my job – and chose to leave higher education to work with our senior population as it is greatly rewarding work.”
Chris also enjoys reading, walking her dog, Molly, adventures and quilting.
