Executive Director

Hickory Senior Living would like to welcome Kayla Felker as the Executive Director of Southern Magnolia Golden. Kayla is from Russellville, AL and currently resides in Iuka, MS with her husband Bobby and two boys, Landon and Canaan. Kayla has a Master’s degree in Social Work. She comes to us with years of experience in geriatric care. Kayla volunteered in high school at a local Long Term Care Facility and while in college. She worked as counselor at Belmont Schools and as an onsite Counselor with Region IV for the Assisted Living Housing Authority in Iuka.
There was a Social Worker that had a major influence on Kayla’s life at a young age. She was inviting and willing to go above and beyond and always give 110% of herself. Through her impact on Kayla’s life, it implanted a passion for Kayla helping people be the best they possibly can wherever they are in their life. Hickory Senior Living is excited to have someone with such passion and tender behavior for the elderly combined with dedication to leadership for her staff. We look forward to Kayla building a dynamic team and continuing to make our senior living community the best!
In her spare time, Kayla enjoys her responsibilities as a mother to her precious boys and wife to her husband. Along with close friends, Kayla and her spouse are very active in their church, The Station Church, in Iuka, MS. She even enjoys arts and crafts and self-taught herself to crochet a few years back.
