Michelle Kelley, Executive Director
Michelle Haigler Kelley is a native of Montgomery Alabama. She currently lives in Pike Road with her husband, Shane and daughters Shelby and Saylor. She worked alongside her mom in the family catering business “The Perfect Mix” for almost 20 years before she began her career in the Senior Living industry in 2011 as the Director of Lifestyles at Elmcroft.

Since then, she has been working everyday with residents and families to find the perfect fit for their loved one. Michelle’s door is always open for residents, families and associates.
“I am excited to join the team at Angels for the Elderly. Angels for the Elderly has always been the community of choice by multiple generations in Montgomery simply based on the reputation of Susan Durden. I am excited to work alongside her, learn her secret to having such a wonderful community, build a strong team of caring associates, getting to know the residents and their families and to be a part of the continued success.”

Brett Simpson Business Office Manager
I was born in Albany, New York and moved to Alabama at a very young age. I graduated from Jefferson Davis High school went on to technical college and received a diploma in Office Technology. I’m happily married with three children and six grandchildren. The biggest enjoyment is spending family time with my family. I also enjoy bike riding, watching old movies and going karaoke. I have worked around and with seniors for twenty years. I started my career as a CNA which gave me great fulfillment in helping the elderly. I worked many years as a Staffing Coordinator for an assisting living community. For the last several years I’ve work in the Business Office. I love what I do and I take great pride in my work. It gives me great pleasure to be working at Angels and to be a service to you and your love ones.
