Tyler Palzkill

Executive Director

Smart, sophisticated and well-rounded is what comes to mind when you first meet Tyler. A direct and passionate leader, Tyler knew leading St. Rita Square was his calling. Why? The urban setting, dynamic feel, and high-end and high-quality execution of this state-of-the-art community spoke to him. Truth be told, this wasn’t his original plan. As a lifelong Packers fan, when he was growing up he found joy in the rules and details of NFL football – and in fact, saw that as a potential career! If energy and communication could be bottled, you’d find it in Tyler. He is a self-proclaimed coffee junkie who starts and ends each day checking the news and stockmarket and responding to emails. What he enjoys: spending days on the lake and dreaming about training for a marathon. What he doesn’t enjoy: people who don’t use their blinker when turning, and those who don’t wash their dishes after they eat.

Julie Gey

Community Relations Manager

Julie brings over 15 years of experience working with seniors to her role as Community Relations Manager at St. Rita Square. Julie prides herself in helping families and making a difference in the lives of others. She is inspired by her son, who despite having health challenges, tries hard every-day. It was caring for her son that made her realize that she was being called to a profession to help others. Julie hopes people remember her as a trustworthy friend with a great sense of humor and a love for life. When Julie isn’t at St. Rita Square you can find her spending time with her family, traveling and being outdoors by a bonfire listening to music. She can also be found whipping up her signature dish of chicken marsala! Julie is grateful for the life lessons that she learns from her residents. One of those lessons is that no matter how tough things may seem, always move forward with a smile and you’ll make someone’s day brighter!

Tamiko Winston

Memory Care Manager

Tamiko is a dedicated and caring individual who takes great pride in her role at St. Rita Square. While she never envisioned herself in this position, she cherishes the opportunity to show her personal growth in people’s lives. Tamiko’s best skills for the job include always being her authentic self and her passion for the work. In her spare time, she enjoys hanging out with friends, watching movies and cooking. Her personal motto is “live each day is if it was your last”. If Tamiko could pass on one piece of wisdom to her residents, it would be to have patience and slow down.
