Karyn Smith

Executive Director

My name is Karyn Smith and I am a Senior Living Executive with more than 10 years of experience. I have a very hands on leadership style and truly lead by example. My goal is to create communities that are  nurturing, fun and welcoming to our residents, families and staff. I live in McHenry and enjoy spending time with my family, I have 1 son and am recently engaged to a man I have known since we were in high school. I love to cook and bake and in my spare time enjoy boating and riding my horse, Mighty.

Eva Kroupa

Director of Resident Care

I’ve been a nurse manager for five years and I have a master’s degree in physical therapy.   I’m known for my attention to detail and dedication to completing work.   I value the importance of patient-centered care, and I enjoy working with my team to ensure my patients are receiving the best care possible.   In my free time, I love to read and go on the boat with my family.

I’ve worked with Karyn (our Executive Director) for 5 years and I came to Aspen Woods because of the wonderful environment she helps create.

Christina Calhoun

Business Office Manager

I have been working with seniors for 10 years, in various roles throughout the community.   I take care of all of Aspen Woods’ financial services, from resident charges, to ensuring that our vendors are paid accurately.   I get to talk with our residents’ families, and I help make sure that everything runs smoothly at Aspen Woods.

On a personal note, I love creating art with multi-medias and I collect smiles and laughter from my two beautiful children while I still can!
