UCH Executive Wins Statewide Recognition

Marsha Crewe

Marsha Crewe, regional housing manager, was recently named as Outstanding Executive for 2014 by the LeadingAge Ohio Professional Recognition Action Council.

LeadingAge is a nonprofit organization representing the entire field of aging services, a charitable organization focused on education, advocacy and applied research developed to learn from like-minded services, advocate together and inspire our country to view aging differently.

As the principal organized advocate for approximately 400 nonprofit long-term care organizations in 150 locations throughout the state, LeadingAge Ohio serves the interests of more than 50,000 elderly Ohioans, or nearly 55% of the state’s skilled nursing facility population.

Marsha was nominated by Gina Laine, housing manager of Cypress Run and Sterling Place, affordable senior housing communities in Florida that are operated by United Church Homes. Gina was not shy in vocalizing her reasons for the nomination:

“Marsha has a way of making you feel good about yourself and the job you do. She inspires the team player concept, which enables my team to conquer all assignments that come our way. She is fair and consistent, interested in our feedback, rewarding and enthusiastic.

“She leads her housing teams with respect. She is well educated on HUD and housing regulations, and without her relationship with the teams she leads, they would not be as successful,” Gina continued. Marsha has been part of the United Church Homes team for 25 years, applying knowledge, experience and passion to her work.

“Marsha puts all she has into her job. That’s who she is,” says Cheryl Wickersham, vice president of housing services.

United Church Homes is proud to have employees like Marsha be recognized for her service. It is always encouraging to be reminded of the qualities embodied by our staff.

Congratulations to Marsha Crewe for her dedication and service.
