Meet the Team
Andrea D. McKinney
Generations Program Director
Andrea D. McKinney is the Generations Program director at Spring Cypress Senior Living and thrives on her passion for working with individuals with Alzheimer’s and dementia. Her journey began at the age of 18, caring for geriatrics as a certified nursing assistant. Andrea’s experience in long-term care, skilled nursing, hospice and home health led her to obtain a bachelor’s degree in public health with a pre-nursing concentration from Sam Houston State University in the fall of 2018. In December of 2019, Andrea proudly accepted her first position with Integral Senior Living (ISL) at Spring Cypress as the Generations Vibrant Life® coordinator. She is excited about the privilege and opportunity of leading the memory care department along with support from the team of directors and staff at Spring Cypress. During her transition, she obtained a Certified Dementia Practitioner certification through the National Council for Certified Dementia Practitioners (NCCDP) and began serving as a committee member in the Alzheimer’s Association: Houston Chapter.
When she is not advocating for change, Andrea enjoys cooking and sharing recipes, running in marathons all over Texas, and spending time outdoors with her two sons and husband. Her long-term goals include obtaining a bachelor’s degree in nursing and excelling in her aspirations as an ISL leader.
