Regional Director of Operations
The Springs Living
Eric Christensen joined The Springs Living in February, 2015 as the Executive Director for The Springs at Tanasbourne. Eric was promoted to Regional Director of Operations in June, 2016 while maintaining his role of Executive Director for The Springs at Tanasbourne.
Eric was recruited by a Senior Living organization based in Portland, Oregon after several years as a sales professional and a pastor. It was not a quick recruitment as Eric’s association with senior living was tainted by a negative experience his grandmother lived through in a nursing home. After insistence from his wife, a Registered Nurse, Eric agreed to reconsider the opportunity. Ultimately, it was Alice, a whitty senior in a power chair, that sealed the deal for Eric. “I had just finished my first interview when I met Alice. She insisted that I come down to her level so she could talk to me then proceeded to tell me a dirty joke! I knew then and there that this was not my grandmother’s nursing home.”
Before joining The Springs Living, Eric served as the Executive Director at Waterford at Fairway Village (now called “Touchmark at Fairway Village") in Vancouver, Washington and as the Executive Director of The Quarry Senior Living in Vancouver, Washington.
Eric earned a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and Biblical Studies from Grand Canyon University in Phoenix, Arizona, and received a Master of Divinity from Western Seminary in Portland, Oregon.
Away from work, Eric and his family enjoy traveling, gardening – including canning the fruits of their garden, woodworking, hiking, camping and spending time with friends. For Eric, the highlight of every year is a family vacation in a remote cabin in the woods of Northern Wisconsin where, as Eric likes to boast, you have to drive over an hour just to get to Walmart.
