Message From the Chapter President

I have recently been elected to serve as President of the Georgia Chapter of ACHCA.  I am very excited about this opportunity.  I have been in long-term care for 27 years and have been employed with Ethica Health & Retirement Communities during my entire tenure.  I currently serve as the Administrator of Traditions Health and Rehabilitation in Lithonia, a 182 bed facility.

My husband Craig and I have been married 29 years.  We have three children and one grandson.  We have had “empty-nest” syndrome for a few years and decided it was time for a new puppy.  “Augustus McCrae”, a dachshund is named after a character in my favorite movie, Lonesome Dove.  He is spoiled rotten and receives the royal treatment.  We have a second home in Myrtle Beach, SC and go every chance we get.

I recently became certified through ACHCA and consider this one of my greatest professional accomplishments!  I look forward to growing our state chapter and working with the National Office of ACHCA.

If you are not a member of the college, please make this a professional priority and become active in our Chapter.  It is a great networking opportunity!  If you are already a member and desire to become certified, our chapter will reimburse you for the costs associated with certification.
