SPRINGFIELD — Lori Todd was named executive director of Loomis Lakeside at Reeds Landing, replacing Craig Johnson, who recently retired.
In her new role as executive director, Todd brings decades of experience as a registered nurse, serving in hospital, home-care, occupational-health, and long-term-care settings, and has been a licensed nursing-home administrator for 34 years working in long-term care.
She has worked for the Loomis Communities for nearly 20 years, previously serving as executive director for Loomis House in Holyoke. During her time at the Loomis Communities, she has had the opportunity to help pioneer culture change in nursing homes and has been recognized for promoting person-centered care.
Todd is a member of the Massachusetts Culture Change Coalition and is currently a CARF (Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities) surveyor in the U.S. and Canada.
“We are so fortunate to have a person of Lori’s ability and background in senior care as the new leader at Loomis Lakeside at Reeds Landing,” said Margaret Mantoni, president and CEO of the Loomis Communities. “She understands the Loomis Communities’ culture and history and, as a person who has worked in the field locally, will bring a depth of knowledge to our Springfield senior-living community.”
Todd is a graduate of Holyoke Community College and earned her bachelor’s degree from UMass Amherst. She volunteers for the Holyoke Public Schools as choreographer for high-school musicals, for which she was recognized in 2019 by the Women’s Business Owners Alliance with the Quiet Achiever Award.
