Rebecca Melpakam | Vice President

Abode Hospice

Rebecca grew up on a ranch in North Dakota with her grandparents and entire family. Part of the culture she grew up in was to respect and honor her elders, and she feels that is so important in what we all do to serve our community.  Rebecca loves to meet and get to know people that have lived their lives, most often to the fullest, with ups and downs and to hear and see what they have learned and how they see it on the other side.  Most often they are not bitter or angry, but have joy for the overall life they have lived. 

Rebecca attended college in her home state, studying as an Occupational Therapy Assistant, then moved to Wyoming and eventually Colorado where she has called home since 1995.  One of her early jobs was a CNA in her local, small town nursing home. Followed by work as a COTA in skilled nursing facilities and rehab centers for geriatric patients.  As well as some time as an Activity Director in long term care facilities.  Post COVID, Rebecca decided to move away from therapy and started as a home health and hospice liaison and then, in 2023 was given the opportunity to work for Abode Hospice. So essentially, she has always found great joy in working with the senior population. 

For Rebecca, giving is so important, as well as kindness and helping to lift others up.  It has been a joy that she can participate in many community events with the SRC and organizing other events as well.  Giving the seniors in our community things to look forward to and participate in to increase their quality of life is like no other. 

As part of my current job as a community liaison, it is my job to make relationships with those that refer to my company, but I personally feel it is even more important to become part of that community.  To be involved with the residents, families, staff, and other venders so together we can make a difference in our community.

Jaime Wuilliez | Treasurer

The Branch

Jaime Wuilliez is co-owner of a local Marketing Agency, The Branch. With background experiences in marketing, branding, finance and operations, Jaime brings her unique skill set and keen eye for detail and communication.

What she loves about the Senior Resource Council (SRC), is the unique opportunity that SRC has to give back to the community. Helping to bring businesses, education, events and LIFE to seniors in the Colorado Springs Community while also providing networking opportunities to its members. Membership growth and diversifying revenue is a major part of a successful non-profit and ensuring the value is there for members is where longevity exists. 

In 2020, COVID caused hurt to so many, especially the senior communities.  The news of shutdowns and lockdowns gave Jaime an idea for the Holiday Season.  Through her current employer at that time, Orangetheory Fitness, she was able to launch a giveback campaign that is still in place today, “Santa For Seniors.” Each year, this giveback opportunity allows the adoption of a nursing home in need for the Holiday Season. To date, with the support of Orangetheory and its absolutely INCREDIBLE, big-hearted members, we have gifted 4 nursing homes and 400+ seniors, and provided additional needs to those facilities. In addition to this project, we also have gifted teens through Rocky Mountain Kids, pets through the Humane Society and infants/toddlers/children through Children’s Hospital Colorado.

Jaime has a love for seniors, helping others and lives by the idea that you can always do just a little more, especially when it comes to helping others.

Angie Conway

Premier Senior Care Coordination

Angie started her career in Senior Care as a Social Services Director, and this is where her passion to advocate for seniors really bloomed. She has learned that seniors tend to lose their voice in making decisions for themselves. Thus, the ability to help seniors have a role in their own care became very important to me. This became Angie’s life-work.

Angie’s mission is to provide education, advocacy, and guidance to her clients regarding their long-term care, wherever that may be.

Angie looks forward to many more years of working with the incredible seniors in our community to ensure they are living their best lives possible.
