ABOUT YOUR ADVISORS IN Maine and The Seacoast, NH
Kelly Wilsey, MBA
Certified Senior Advisor®
I began my career in non-profit management, product management, and operational management. What I love most is working with people and helping them in any way that I can. Oasis has allowed me to do what I love, while growing my career.
I graduated from the University of San Francisco with a degree in communication, and received my MBA from Northeastern University in 2015. After losing my mom in 2003, I trained for and completed an IRONMAN to honor her life. I believe in helping people love all aspects of their life at any age. I am currently writing a book, and am actively involved with my son’s school. I enjoy skiing, yoga, gardening, and independent reading on the Whole Brain and early child development. I currently reside in York, Maine, with my four-year-old son, Benjamin.

Senior Living Advisor
My passion is helping people, as I have found it very rewarding in my careers in education, finance, and the service industry. I enjoy assisting people of all ages and abilities; like the student who needed guidance because they felt it was impossible to solve that difficult math problem, or the teacher who needed assistance implementing computer-based learning. When an elderly gentleman's family had no idea what to do when they could no longer manage caring for him on their own, I was also happy to help-- and that’s what led me to Oasis Senior Advisors.
I have a Masters in Education from the University of New Hampshire and am a retired Principal, Administrator, and Teacher of 12 years. I also hold a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration. As a change of pace, I ran a successful pet service company which I very much enjoyed. I am married to my wonderful husband, Ken, and we live in Durham, New Hampshire. Our daughter recently graduated college in New York where she is currently living. In my free time, I enjoy playing golf, boating, swimming, biking, and reading.
Finding solutions for people is what I do best using my resourcefulness and perseverance. Now as a Solution Partner for Oasis, I get to put my skills to good use by partnering with families to find the best fit for their loved ones in a caring community.
Senior Living Advisor
For 30 years, I’ve worked in the human services field, including experience as a social worker in a New Hampshire assisted living/nursing home, as director of a non-clinical day program for adults with mental illness, and 16 years at Seacoast Mental Health Center. While all of these positions were unique, they shared one similarity: assisting people to obtain benefits and navigate their way through the New Hampshire system.
It was at that time that I became proficient with New Hampshire’s Long Term Care and Choices for Independence (LTC/CFI) applications. As both a case manager and a REAP (Referral, Education, Assistance and Prevention) counselor, I learned the requirements and criteria required for Medicaid, and gained valuable experience on how to support families trying to place a relative in a safe facility.
The transition to senior community living can be a stressful one-- but it doesn’t need to be. I look forward to the opportunity to assist you and your loved ones.
