Stevee has been called the "heart of the facility" for fifteen years, and clearly the residents agree. Before settling in Houston, the Steely's lived overseas in Venezuela and Thailand, where Stevee had the opportunity to submerse herself into the local culture and became a valuable part of the volunteers at the international school. She fine-tuned the art of bringing people together for work and play. Once back stateside, she began her first job as an activity director where she immersed herself in the joy of bringing seniors together. Well known in the community for her incredible volunteer program and creative activities, Stevee was invited by the precinct to help write the mission statement for their "Fun for Seniors" program. Six years later she had become the assistant administrator, working with families and staff, still participating in activities whenever possible. When the Parsons purchased the facility, Stevee was excited to accept the offer to become Executive Director, expanding her passion to make a difference in the lives of the residents, their families, and her staff. She has created an extended family within the community that you feel the moment you walk through the front door!
Tim joined Parsons House Cypress after moving from Washington State, where he served as a Sheriff’s Deputy for six years; renovating homes on his days off. Before that he served as a Platoon Medic in the Army. He has fond memories growing up with his grandmother living with them on the weekends, while “on a mission to help people” during the week, living in a nursing home. He loves bow-fishing, playing hymns on his trumpet, reading historical fiction, and any type of fabrication he can get his hands on.

Micka comes to Parsons House with over 20 years of chef experience. She attended and graduated from Le Cordon Bleu in Dallas, Texas in Baking & Pastry. This intense course started with the French techniques that make up the culinary backbone and progressed into other techniques. In 1999, Micka travelled to Paris to attend the Le Cordon Bleu Culinary Cooking School, in London. It was a magical experience that left her with a renewed sense of cooking from the heart. Her teacher there shared her philosophy about food and how there are healthy ways to enjoy the foods we love. After graduating, Micka gained experience as a private chef, working with fine dining, in private homes, yachts & luxury hotels. She then returned to school to attend the Le Cordon Bleu Culinary Cooking School in Scottsdale, Arizona, for her bachelor’s degree in Culinary Management. Micka’s culinary passion has landed her back in school, and when she is away from Parsons House, she attends Johnson & Wales University. Micka is excited to earn her next degree, an MBA in Culinary Hotel Management. Micka enjoys making the Residents and Visitors at Parsons House feel welcome and comfortable every day.
