Angie Anderson

Director of Nursing

I enjoy working at Northridge Village because each and every staff member genuinely shares the desire to care for the elderly as I do myself. I have shared the same compassion since I became a C.N.A. in 2005. Each day is a new adventure and I love that. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my husband and 2 little boys attending their sporting events, riding 4-wheelers and going dirt track racing.


Michelle Jackson

Assistant Marketing Director

After attending Iowa State for my Bachelor's degree, I decided to work towards my Master's degree in organizational leadership through Buena Vista University. Currently, I live in Ames with my fiancé, dog Ophelia, and cat Luna. I love to spend my free time traveling, going to concerts, hiking, and seeing family members. I have always had a passion for connecting with others. Please feel free to reach out or stop by my office so that we can meet!

Hair Stylist

Hi! My name is Danyell Hall. I am the hair stylist here at Northridge Village Salon. I’ve been in the industry for almost 17 years. Each day with the residents is rewarding, and I’m always eager to see them smiling each and every day. I have two daughters and two step-sons. My husband and I reside in Ames. We enjoy trips to Las Vegas and hanging out with family and friends. We also love attending Iowa State football games and cheering on the Cyclones!


Kris Crawford

Activities Director

I would say a couple reasons that stand out to me working here at Northridge are: I have the opportunity to work with some very skilled people who are great teammates as well and the interaction and relationships that are built with our tenants, residents and their families. I live in Story City, love being a Grandma and GO CYCLONES!


Greg Stassen

Plant Operations Manager

I am originally from Minnesota. I moved to Ames with my Wife, Tara, our son, Bryce and daughter Breanna. We moved to Ames in 2005 after falling in love with the Cyclones. Go Cyclones! When I’m not at work, I enjoy fishing, especially ice fishing, playing golf and camping. I am looking forward to working here at Northridge Village and getting to know the residents!
