Leanne, a Lititz native and Warwick High School graduate, began her career as a floor nurse, administering medications, completing daily treatments and was a member of the wound care team. She went on to work as a staff development nurse, providing education on mandated long-term care topics. Her experience led her to a position as an Admission Coordinator with a senior living community, in which she worked closely with families and residents in determining levels of care needed.
That experience steered her into an MDS Coordinator position where she became certified as a Resident Assessment Coordinator (RAC-CT) and is a member of The American Association of Nurse Assessment Coordinators. As a certified nurse assessment coordinator, Leanne is knowledgeable in Medicare/Medicaid billing and can navigate the ever-changing insurance systems. Leanne worked as a care manager for a home care agency and her own business consulting families and clients with long-range planning to prevent crises from occurring to assure the safety of her elderly clients.
Leanne earned her Personal Care Home Administrator Certification (PCHA) in 2012 and has worked as an administrator for the past three years at Moravian Manor. While working as a Personal Care Home Administrator, Leanne obtained her Assisted Living Administrator License (ALA) and is a member of the Pennsylvania Assisted Living Association (PALA). Leanne worked closely with the Pennsylvania Department of Human Services and Licensing Board and was instrumental in developing policies and procedures for Moravian Manor in obtaining its Assisted Living Licensure.
During her career, Leanne has made it her goal to minimize the stress for her clients and family members by restoring the dignity and quality of life for those she serves. Leanne and her husband, Bob, reside in Manheim and have three grown children.
