Cathy Lockhart

Cathy Lockhart BN, RN

Director of Health & Wellness

Cathy is Trico LivingWell’s Director of Health & Wellness. Cathy began her career as a registered nurse in the areas of maternity and the NICU, where she developed her skills in relationship-centred care. While raising her children, Cathy took a brief hiatus from nursing and worked in advertising and corporate design. Throughout her life, she enjoyed many meals with her grandparents and wanted to help other older adults live a life of meaning and purpose. She knew she needed to return to nursing, specifically senior living.

For 10 years, Cathy worked in a nursing leadership role in a retirement residence in Calgary. During that time, she was the recipient of several regional and national awards for clinical leadership. Cathy was fortunate to lead a high performing clinical team who regularly surpassed provincial audit requirements and as a result, she was featured in the 2017 Health Quality Council of Alberta’s Annual Report. Outside of work, Cathy enjoys spending time with her sons, family, and friends, as well as exercising and doing puzzles.

Kelsey Clarke

Kelsey Clarke

Director of Leasing

Joining the Trico LivingWell team as Director of Leasing, Kelsey is passionate about connecting with older adults in a thoughtful, respectful, and meaningful way. For many years, Kelsey worked in retirement residences throughout Calgary by helping families find the right retirement community to meet their needs. In 2015, she joined the Trico Homes sales team where she was awarded the Avid Service Award (2019 & 2020) for exemplary customer service scores. When Wayne Chui announced that Trico would be venturing into the retirement living industry, Kelsey saw a rare opportunity to combine her passion for helping older adults with her deep trust and respect for Trico Homes. She had no doubt that the Trico values would bring Trico LivingWell to life and create an exceptional residence for older adults to call home.

Kelsey studied theatre at Keyano College, and when not at work she is busy hiking, biking, and exploring the great outdoors with her husband, Scott, her son, Atlas, and her dog, Jasper.
