Careers in Aging: Holly Witkemper, Executive Director

Careers In Aging Week; Workforce

Holly started out her career as a young teenager volunteering at DCMH hospital on the Continuing Care floor with her Grandma. She went on to a local nursing home and was an Activity Assistant.  From there, she took the Lacy Beyl course and became an Activity Director.  After many years, she worked her way up and took more courses and became a Social Service Director. After several years she then became the Admissions Director.

She then completed the Administrator in Training program and from there she took the test and became the Executive Director. Holly has a great understanding of the inner workings of the facility as she has worked in most every management position, and even as a bus driver.

Holly jumps in wherever she is needed and her dedication to her residents throughout the years and during the pandemic has been extraordinary.
