Southern Knights Senior Living Community Resident Care Coordinator


Susan was born in Lufkin, the heart of East Texas. She moved to the Tomball area in 2002 where she continued her passion as a care giver to the elderly. Susan received her certifications in Lufkin as a Certified Nurse Aide and Certified Medication Aide. She brought her talents to our community in 2004. At Southern Knights Susan has grown with her resident’s ever changing needs. She is known for going above and beyond her specific duty. Susan has been the Resident Care Coordinator since 2009 and always strives to be there for her team, residents, and their families. Susan has three children and two granddaughters that are the apple of her eye. She is a people person and loves animals.


Dangel, “Dee” to her friends, became a part of the Southern Knights community in 2001, following her dream of a career in nursing. Dee strives to improve the elderly’s quality of life and believes each and every encounter by every individual can change that. She has held many positions here and is always flexible and eager to learn new things. Dee is currently our Sales and Marketing Director, and is excited to meet new clients and start new friendships. She has two sons that mean everything to her, and gives her family any spare time she has available.
