Kristen Burman

Executive Chef/Culinary Director

You have to love someone who always has a kite in their car. It goes perfectly with a sense of curiosity and creativity, and a bit of playfulness. For Executive Chef & Culinary Director Kristen Burman, that’s a great recipe for meeting the challenge of pleasing a diversity of palates, which she strives to do each day. And just as satisfying for Kristen: getting to know the personalities behind those palates. “I love to have a hand in encouraging seniors to live their best life at any age,” she says. Her commitment to serving residents is strong, as is her love of nature, whether hiking, birdwatching, or swimming with her husband and son. That is, when she’s not catching a breeze with her trusty kite.
