Lisa discovered her passion for seniors at the age of 16 while working as a waitress in a senior living community. She knew right away that she wanted to make it her career. Shortly after graduating from Saint Joseph’s University, she began working in a skilled care setting and became a licensed nursing home administrator. She switched to personal care twenty years ago and has been working at The Residence at Glen Riddle since 1996. She credits her passion for working with seniors to the wonderful relationship she had with her grandparents while growing up, and she is proud of the fact that she knows each and every one of the residents on a personal level. In her free time, Lisa enjoys playing with her dogs, cooking for her husband and sons, bike riding and kayaking.
Connie was initially hired in 1998 as the business office manager. Though efficient at her job, it soon became apparent that her skills and talents would have a greater impact on the lives of our residents as the Activities Director. She has taught the residents to reach beyond their expectations and explore their possibilities, and these days it’s not unusual to find 45 residents participating in daily meditation in the living room. Connie, herself an artist, attended Moore College of Art. She has had a varied career as a massage therapist, musician and small business owner. She is a reiki master and while not at work enjoys traveling and spending time by the sea.
