Meet Kip Harder

This Monday, we would like to introduce you to future resident, Kip Harder.

A current resident of Raleigh, NC, Kip has been retired for three years. In her free time she enjoys adult coloring, photography and reading. Kip recently attended an event that SpringShire hosted with the ECU Alumni Association. “The behind-the-scenes tour of the conservation of artifacts from Blackbeard’s famous pirate ship, The Queen Anne’s Revenge, was fascinating. That’s something that excites me about life at SpringShire – we’ll continue to learn through new experiences.” 

Prior to moving to Raleigh, Kip was living in Cary. One thing she loves about SpringShire is that this area has the same feel as Cary did when she first moved there. “Greenville’s a more intimate community and I’m looking forward to getting back to that kind of lifestyle,” notes Kip, who goes on to say, “and SpringShire’s quiet natural setting with a pool and a lush garden area is not like any retirement community I’ve seen before.”

Kip looks forward to taking long walks in the natural areas of SpringShire where she can continue her love of photographing wildlife, plants and flowers. Another bonus Kip finds in SpringShire is, since they have not started construction, she had the opportunity to select the exact location of her apartment and can be a part of selecting the finishes.

While she is currently 100% independent, often enjoying the preparation of her own meals, Kip knows there will come a time she will need assistance. She’s familiar with other Retirement Living Associates properties and knows she’ll get great care when that time arrives. Until then, she’s looking forward to participating in as many activities and outings as she can and getting to know the other residents of SpringShire.
