Kristen Selvig

Administrator / Clinical Director

I have over 13 years of medical experience and a lifetime of being exposed to long-term care with an immediate family member. I knew growing up with the exposure of long-term care, that the medical industry was my calling. So far, I really enjoy not only being an advocate for the residents, but the families and employees as well. It is very rewarding.

I started off dabbling in healthcare and worked my way up to where I am now, which has given me a vast variety of experience that has really helped me grow as a medical professional. At the age of 17, I completed and received my CNA certification, I went on from there and became a pharmacy technician, then went back to school to become a phlebotomist. After working many years in a laboratory environment, I wanted to do more, so I became a nurse. I have been a nurse for eight years and have loved every aspect of the position. I started off in substance abuse and mental health. From there, I went to travel nursing, and when my daughter came it led me to pediatric nursing. I knew I wanted more though, which lead me to go back to school to become a medical facility administrator. Before coming to Byron Center Manor, I worked as an office coordinator for a therapeutic apheresis department which only confirmed my decision in wanting to manage in the healthcare industry.

Upon graduation, I immediately started my search for my forever career home. Recently, I came across an email of potential positions of which I may be interested. Right away the first one that stood out to me was Byron Center Manor. I read over the position summary and saved it as a favorite. Throughout the day I was drawn back to the job position posting–reading it over and over. I finally came to the realization that this was my calling and how perfect of a position at such a reputable facility was available in my own community.

I am a mother of a 12-year-old stepson, 6-year-old stepdaughter, 6-year-old daughter of my own and a baby boy on the way, due in October. I grew up in Dorr, I attended Corinthians College for nursing and obtained my LPN, and I also attended Baker College and obtained my bachelor’s degree in Health Administration.

Kristen came to our team in August of 2020. She brought with her a wealth of clinical experience, along with administrative skills and has been busy applying them from the beginning of her time with us. She has proven that she has the will and ability to apply her experience and skills even in these trying times. She quickly caught on to our current practices and has already improved them. She is very organized and gives clear, thought-out direction to the staff. I have had many people compliment our selection of her for the position. She has already made a difference and will surely continue to make us all better.
