Burcham Hills Director of Operations Abdullah Masood and Memory Care Manager Kathleen Leslie received recognition by LeadingAge Michigan, which represents mission-based providers who serve seniors and adults with disabilities. Masood was named Emerging Leader wand Leslie received the Shining Star award.

“We are pleased that LeadingAge Michigan has chosen to recognize Burcham Hills staff members,” said Pam Ditri, executive director of Burcham Hills. “Both Abdullah and Kathleen contribute to our community with their leadership and innovation, and are devoted to excellence in senior health care.”

Masood became director of operations in 2016 but started his career at Burcham Hills serving in the dining room in 2004, when he was 16. The Okemos native has a bachelor’s degree in management from the Broad School of Business at Michigan State University. Masood recently earned the designation of licensed nursing home administrator.

Leslie began as manager in the memory care area in 2014. In 2015, under Leslie’s direction, Burcham Hills added two new “neighborhoods” to the community. These neighborhoods were designed to increase social interaction for the high-functioning memory care residents. Leslie also created a sensory room to enhance tactile function as well as a music and memory program to help sustain cognitive function.
