Troy Barrick

Executive Director

I have been blessed to serve in senior services for almost 20 years. I have been a licensed nursing home administrator for my entire professional career, as well as having leadership experience in assisted living, clinic, and hospital environments. I have led teams to nationally recognized 5-star rating success by focusing on providing top-notch care and doing what is right for the residents.

I was drawn to New Perspective Senior Living through hearing our owner, Todd Novaczyk, speak at a seminar a few years back. I admired his passion, compassion, and vision to provide the best home possible by always keeping the residents first. I consider myself fortunate that I can serve seniors in an organization where my passion for positively influencing the lives of our residents, families, and employees can be lived every day.

I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Health Services Administration from the University of South Dakota and a Masters of Healthcare Administration from the University of Minnesota – Moorhead.

I'm the Director of Sales for New Perspective Senior Living | Waconia. I grew up on a farm not too far from this beautiful city. I fell in love with New Perspective in 2012, when I started as a Life Enrichment Director at the Eagan and Prior Lake communities. From there I worked as the Business Office Coordinator and have worked in our corporate human resources department. Each time I visited Waconia, I was so impressed by the way I felt love and positive energy, I knew I wanted to call it my career home. It's exciting to help seniors find such a wonderful place to call their new home,and where they get to live life on purpose everyday with an outstanding care staff and leadership team!
