Executive Leadership & Dedicated Staff

executive leadership

Leadership is a spirit, not a job description. You see it when the fitness instructor works hand-in-hand with the rehab staff to help a patient get strong enough for surgery. You see it when a housekeeper introduces a newcomer to a longtime resident who shares her passion for the violin. You see it when people pool their talents to create a new activity for everyone. If you want to see leadership in action, meet our staff. If you want to reach our management, we’re always eager to hear from you.

Executive Leadership

With decades of experience in the senior living industry, our leadership team collaborates to fully meet the needs of our residents. Bringing skills and talents honed over decades with a belief that every interaction is an opportunity for a meaningful, engaging connection. Together, they focus on meeting resident needs and improving the quality of life for everyone at Larkfsfield.

Mike Hambley
President & CEO

Mike grew up in Kalamazoo, Michigan. While participating in a high school youth group, he found his calling helping seniors. He later became a pastor, and the strong faith of older adults inspired him to make a career out of serving retirement communities.

Mike holds master’s degrees in divinity and business administration. He has previously served as executive director, president and CEO at continuous care retirement communities throughout the Midwest and the South.

With more than a decade of leadership experience, he guides our organization in supporting the lives of seniors. For Mike, serving residents means engaging in good conversation, sharing laughter, and helping them age healthfully and successfully.

Lisa Smading
Executive Director of Assisted Living

While growing up in Salina, Kansas, Lisa remembers accompanying her father to senior living communities where he led worship services. She regularly visited with two particular residents — a grandmother and great-grandmother who lived in the same community. These experiences created a passion for senior service.

Lisa graduated from Kansas State University with degrees in business management and gerontology. After moving to Southern California for a job in senior housing, she returned home to continue her career. As administrator of assisted living, Lisa helps residents make the most of life and enjoys hearing their amazing stories. She says the blessings of working at Larksfield are unequaled.
