From our Executive Director

Dear S.E.P.P. Community Members:

It is an honor to serve as Executive Director of S.E.P.P. Having spent much of my professional career in customer service related industries and government, I enjoy applying my skills and experiences to S.E.P.P.'s mission of providing safe, affordable, independent living communities throughout the Southern Tier. We are here to serve our residents and enhance the living experience wherever possible and it gives me great pleasure to work with our professional staff and Board as we further this mission and continue to grow throughout our region.
