Executive Director

Darien’s first job was in Senior Living as a relief custodian and volunteer at his hometown Senior Center. He cleaned the facility at night and helped carry out activities during the day for several years. Along the way, Darien fostered many relationships with his local seniors. These relationships would nurture an obsession for the art of storytelling and after graduating from the Davidson Honors College at the University of Montana, he went on to pursue filmmaking in Los Angeles, CA. Right as the coronavirus pandemic was beginning in 2020, Darien felt called back to his roots in Senior Living and quickly made his efforts known. He excelled as a Business Office Manager, earned his Administrator license, and this is his first opportunity as an Executive Director. Darien is excited to serve Willow Springs and see the positive difference he can make in the community! When Darien isn’t at the facility, he’s out hiking or training his very-talkative dog, Siren.
