Culinary Service Director
Allan McGregor began his fine-dining career when he arrived in Seattle, Washington, from Glasgow, Scotland, 15 years ago. Not long after his arrival, he started working with senior living residents and never looked back. He loves the challenge of creating flavorful and nutritious meals that allow residents to stay healthy, with the feeling that it could have been created from their own kitchen.
Allan moved to Knoxville, Tennessee, in 2018 and has embraced the East Tennessee flavors while incorporating local favorites and comfort foods into a robust menu that his residents can be proud to invite their families to enjoy.
Resident Care Director
Lisa Neice joined Raintree Terrace as resident care director in September 2016. Lisa has more than 30 years of health care experience, which began as caregiver in a senior living community. Since then, she has tirelessly served in the dietary, housekeeping and activities departments. Lisa is driven to help others, so several years after her first exposure as a caregiver and assisting in the care of her father, she decided to become a nurse. She received her nursing license as a practical nurse from Washington County School of Practical Nursing in 2005, with top honors. Before moving back to Knoxville two years ago, she was a licensed assisted living facility administrator in Virginia and served at three different communities. Since her first visit to Raintree Terrace, for her initial job interview, she felt that this is where she was meant to be. The home-like atmosphere immediately spoke to her heart.
Lisa loves spending time with her family. She and her husband, Rick, have been married for 36 years and are blessed with four children. Lisa’s absolute greatest joy in her life is being called “Mimi” by Lane, Clayton, Ethan, Jonathan, Adrianna and Barrett. In her free time, she relaxes on the front porch of her cabin and looks down over the beautiful mountain views.
