Prior Lake Leadership

Amy Hesselgrave

Executive Director


Amy Hesselgrave

Executive Director

I have spent close to 25 years in the property management industry as a multi-family business manager and senior housing executive director. I enjoy the daily opportunities to work with seniors, their families and to work alongside a great team. When away from New Perspective Prior Lake, I enjoy my time with my daughter, our dog and cat. I can also be regularly found on a pool deck officiating swim meets that my daughter competes in.

Director of Sales


Coleen Sanford

Director of Sales

Over the last fifteen years I have had the honor to serve the senior population in a variety of ways to assist families to find the right place to call home. In this journey, I have been a wonderful part of so many families, and it is my true passion that keeps me connected to the field of senior care. I am so fortunate to now start this partnership with NPSL-Prior Lake. Where I can truly live out my passion and join forces with those liked minded where living life on purpose is our gold standard. I am mother of three adult children and all live here in the Twin Cities, and a very proud owner of an 9 ½ year old tea cup long coat chihuahua named Dali Rahma.
