Vibrant Life Director
Theresa Tanner has been working in the activities department for six years. Originally from Raytown, Mo., Theresa graduated from the University of Central Missouri in Warrensburg, Mo., in 2008. While living in downtown Kansas City, Mo., for over 25 years, she worked with state and federal offenders. After meeting her husband and getting married, they moved to Belton, Mo. This is where they have lived for 30 years.
Before Theresa’s father passed away in 2009, he resided at Solstice Senior Living at Lee’s Summit for three years. It was during this time that Theresa became acquainted with the building and its residents and decided that it would be fun to work with the older population.
Theresa enjoys getting to know the residents and working with them to connect with each other, the community and their families. She loves planning new adventures every month and continuing monthly activities that work well for the residents. The residents simply enjoy the once-a-month “Mystery Trips” on the Solstice bus.
