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.
Resident Care Director
Alan Soledad, Resident Care director at Spring Cypress Senior Living, brings with him years of experience as a licensed vocational nurse and a passion for establishing and nurturing relationships with our residents and their families. His experience includes working in skilled nursing facilities and rehabilitation facilities and teaching a class for the nursing board for several years. It wasn’t until working in his first assisted living and memory care community that Alan found his calling, and he went back to school to pursue a degree in health care administration.
“I’ve been asked multiple times why I became a nurse, and the response I’ve always given is I truly believe nursing chose me. The very first day of clinical rotations was the day that my life changed forever. After learning from a certified nurse assistant the whole day, we were doing our last rounds when one of the residents of the skilled nursing facility reached out, held my hand, looked me in the eye and said ‘thank you,’” Alan said.
At Spring Cypress Senior Living, Alan ensures our residents are in a warm environment where they are happy, are well cared for and are living vibrantly.
