Kate Shaw
Weekend Receptionist & Dining Assistant

I have been at Alpine Vista for several years and have worked with staff as dining assistant, housekeeper, assistant activity director, receptionist, and activity director. I have enjoyed working with the residents every year and learning about their interests from all these various perspectives. I like being a positive voice for Alpine Vista and feel most comfortable continuing as parttime Receptionist and assisting in dining services.


Theresa Hubbard
Office Manager

Theresa Hubbard is our office manager at Alpine Vista, was introduced to Alpine Vista Senior Apartments when her mother was a resident. During her stay here, I became very fond of many of the residents and knew that at some point in time I would like to become a part of the team. I had worked previously for Kaniksu Health Services for 5 years and it was not until my mother became ill, did I make the choice to quit my job there to take care of her. After her passing, I received a call from the Community Manager indicating that there was a position available in housekeeping. I agreed to take the position so I could help senior residents transition through some of their difficult times. Now as the office manager, I am so excited to be able to work with them individually in a new capacity. Whether it is listening to their concerns or trying to help them solve a problem, our objective is to help our Seniors enjoy their time here at Alpine Vista Senior Apartments!!


Daisy Arreola

I enjoy living in North Idaho for all the recreational opportunities that exist here. I especially enjoy camping with my family and enjoying the surrounding community. I have been housekeeping for the past 15 years in various businesses such as casinos, hotels, and assisted living facilities. I enjoy interacting with the elder residents and hearing their wonderful stories. While working with the casinos, I served as assistant to the marketing director. Working for Alpine Vista is a wonderful change of pace from the supercharged environments of casinos and hotels. I am so pleased to be a part of the AVSA family.
