Elizabeth Applegate

Executive Director

I have been blessed to be a part of this wonderful community for the past nine years. I am proud of our staff, they bring passion and humor to everything they do. The Residents are family and it is wonderful to hear “I have found my home”. They remind me to embrace every day for the goodness it brings to us. When not at Cardinal, I can usually be found with my head in a book or my feet in the garden.

Steve Kurtz

Sales & Marketing

I’m fortunate to have the opportunity to help our seniors, learn from them and share in their experiences. The most rewarding part of working at Cardinal is seeing the positive transformation in new residents as they grow more comfortable within their new environment. My wife and I have two grown daughters and enjoy traveling and snow skiing out West each year. I also enjoy the indoors, other peoples’ pets, searching for lost golf balls and was once almost a really good tennis player.

Cindie Anderson

Business Office Manager

I’ve been blessed with being a part of our Cardinal Retirement family since 2007. Having a passion for the senior population, I make sure we hire the BEST staff in town to take care of our residents! Although I handle billing statements, rent payments and hiring paperwork, to me this is not a job, but a fulfilling journey as I walk and talk among my adoptive grandparents. My husband and I have grown twin daughters; one of which is married and has blessed us with our first grandchild.

Missy Smith

Director of Nursing

My residents and staff are like my second family. I began working at Cardinal since 2014 but still look forward to learning new things from them each day. Having worked in geriatrics for more than 12 years and being raised by my grandmother, I’ve gained a great deal of insight and experience with the aging population and embrace all of the different personalities. I enjoy spending my free time with my husband and two adult daughters.

Bri Protain

Activity Director

I am blessed to join the Cardinal family. I chose to work with seniors because I had a very close relationship with my grandparents until they passed. In this way I can continue my love I had for them by serving the residents here. I recently moved to the Akron area and will soon be married. I look forward to starting a family of my own one day and hope my kids will get to know my extended Cardinal family as well.  I am excited to get to know everyone more and to make many great memories with some amazing people.

Rocco Moretta

Executive Chef

I joined Cardinal in August of 2018 and responsible for our dining program and food preparation. I enjoy speaking to residents about food experiences and family recipes because there is so much that I can learn from them and the lifetime of knowledge they share. When I am away from Cardinal I enjoy family time with my wife and 3 children. I love to attend sporting events, fishing and hiking.
