I have been at the Council on Aging of Buncombe County since September 5, 2017. I am so excited to be here! I am learning more about our programs and the clients we serve. I have been in aging services for the last 12 years and I am honored to be in this role as the Executive Director. Since coming to the Council on Aging, I have gotten involved with a variety of committees and organizations. I have had the opportunity to visit our dining sites, meet our amazing volunteers, and make home visits with the resource coordination staff. I have seen first-hand how our services make a difference and impact in the lives of the clients we serve. While over the next few months we may make a few changes to the programs we offer, please know that we make these changes so we can better serve older adults and their families in our community.
We are currently planning our first annual Derby Party (www.coabc.org/derby-party ) on May 5th at The Venue downtown. In addition, we are planning and looking forward to our Successful Aging Conference (www.coabc.org/successful-aging) on Thursday June 14th at OLLI. Please consider joining us at one of these events.
Lastly, thank you for your support over the years to The Council on Aging. Through generous donations, volunteer efforts and by trusting us to serve you and your families we have continued to thrive as the service provider for older adults. I look forward to my future here at COAbc and I look forward to meeting you!
