Elizabeth Novak

MARKETING CONSULTANT OF INDEPENDENT LIVING

I have a Masters Degree in Community Counseling as well as 13 years working in hospitals – 10 were in a Triple Trauma Hospital, where I did HR/Staff development/Marketing for the Community.

18 years working in senior living – 2+ years as an Executive Director – remainder as Marketing Director. Personally took care of a parent with Alzheimer’s in my home for 18 of his 20 years and that was a wonderful adventure with many positives.

My parents were 40+ years older than me, and I always had an affinity for older people and love to learn all the life histories of all I meet. I enjoy each and every day being in a senior community and am so fortunate to be a part of so many wonderful peoples’ lives.
