Mandi Kelso - Executive Director 

Mandi joined Parsons House in the Summer of 2018 as Care Coordinator and was recently promoted to Executive Director. She and her family recently relocated to the Houston-area from Boise, Idaho. Mandi is married with two children, and a menagerie of pets that include a pig, two cats, a hedgehog, and a parrot named Goose. Mandi is a dedicated and focused patient care advocate, who continuously strives to improve and find new ways to manage our resident’s care. She is committed to our resident’s quality of life and personal growth. When away from Parsons House, you will find Mandi spending time with her family, traveling, and exploring Houston.

Tim Noreen - Maintenance Director

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. 

Betty Hayner - Office Supervisor

Betty is a graduate from Belhaven University with a degree in Business Management. She comes to us with a background as an executive assistant doing accounting related work for the past 12 years. Betty was looking for a career change when she found Parsons! She now gets to interact with the sweetest residents who visit her desk daily. She still uses her accounting skills, making sure the books are correct and the staff gets paid! On her off time, she enjoys trying new things, antique shopping, and spending time with close family and friends, including her first new grand-baby.

Michelle Smitth - Care Coordinator

Michelle has been with Parsons House Cypress for two years and worked for the previous owner for four years. She had fallen in love with the residents and loved working with them as a care giver and med tech, so she was thrilled to continue her career at the same community. As a caregiver, Michelle was always on the go! You’d see her in one part of the building with one resident and in the blink of an eye she was in a different hall with a different resident. Her quick response time, her obvious heart for the residents, and her intimate knowledge of the inner workings of the med room made her the perfect choice as our Care Coordinator, working hand in hand with our Assisted Living Director, Lina. Six years ago, Michelle was a stay at home mom caring for her own three children and her niece and nephews. Once everyone was grown, she began her career to fill the empty spot! Other than being with the residents, she now enjoys spending time with her three grandchildren!
