Creative Aging Cincinnati
Bev’s compassion for the senior population was instilled as a child witnessing family members care for her grandmother. Her passion for working with the senior population began while attending Northern Kentucky University. She chose to work at an adult day program for the required practicum hours needed for her degree in Mental Health and Human Services.
Following her graduation in 1999, Bev worked as an Activity Director at Eldermount Adult Day Care, now Bayley Adult Day, for 10 years. Here, she took great pride in scheduling activities, events and trips for the seniors in her care. During this time, she also acquired the Activity Director’s Certification. Continuing her education at what is now the University of Mount St. Joseph, Bev then received her Recreation Therapy Certification. In 2007, she resigned from Bayley to be home with her first child. At that time, she was offered and accepted a new role as the Executive Director of Creative Aging. Considered the best of both worlds, this part time position with a home office enables her to be with her three children while working to make a positive impact in the lives of seniors throughout Greater Cincinnati.
