Jodi Saeko
Executive Director

I am the newest member of the Ecumen Prairie Lodge Team, joining in November, 2016. Prior to coming here, I have over 15 years of housing management experience, generally in the Northern Minneapolis and suburbs. My passion for working with seniors started at age 16, in food service at an area nursing home and has continued to grow from there. Additionally, as a daughter of a parent in an assisted living community, I have both perspectives of management and family. I have lived in the northern metro suburbs for 33 years and know the area well. In my spare time, I enjoy being a grandparent to one child in the area and others in the southern part of the country, where I enjoy visiting.

Samuel Sampson, RN
Clinical Director

I've been in the healthcare field for over 20 years serving in various capacities. I joined Ecumen Prairie Lodge in September, 2017 as Director of Clinical Services. Previously, I worked as a Utilization Review Nurse, Nursing Instructor, Clinical Manager, Nursing Supervisor, Assistant Director of Nursing, and Director of Nursing.

I completed my Associate Degree in Nursing from College of St. Catherine in Minneapolis, BSN from Liberty University in Lynchburg Virginia, and Masters in Nursing Informatics from Grantham University in Lenexa, Kansas.

I've lived in MN for the past 27 years and also served as a Medic with the Minnesota Army National Guard from 1992-1998. I enjoyed working with the elderly and Vulnerable adults and believe it is our obligation to ensure we are meeting their needs and following the plan of care.

In my spare time, I enjoy watching sports, movies, running, playing basketball/football/soccer and spending time with family. Excited about the opportunity with Ecumen.

Judy Decker
Sales and Marketing Manager

I am excited to be part of the awesome team at Ecumen Prairie Lodge! I have been working in the senior housing industry for several years as a liaison helping seniors and their families in transition. I have a broad background and am experienced in account management, sales, service, finance and administration. My degree is in Business Management from Cardinal Stritch University with a focus on Sales and Marketing and Diversity.

I volunteer my time with MASWA (Minneapolis Area Senior Workers Association) and have most recently been the Membership Chair. I am currently holding the position of President Elect with this organization. When time allows and the weather cooperates, I enjoy spending time outdoors, gardening and traveling with my friends and family.

Mary Donohue

In 2012, I joined Ecumen as part of their Home Care office. I have 25 years of experience in finance and medical billing, and I greatly enjoy working with residents and their families.

My three adult children are my life. I reside in Stillwater, and when I’m not at work I enjoy working in the garden, rollerblading, riding motorcycle and exploring new destinations.
