New Senior Hub director named

Posted

The Senior Hub has named Stephanie Knight, a former director of an Alzheimer’s care facility and head of the Better Buisness Bureau in Alabama, as its new Executive Director.

Knight brings 18 years of experience in both the nonprofit and private sectors, according to an organization press relesea.

“We’re delighted to welcome Stephanie to The Senior Hub,” said Renee Dees, Di-rector of Development and Community Relations. “Her broad knowledge of the issues affecting older adults, combined with her successful leadership history and impressive public spirit, equip her to continue The Senior Hub’s essential programs, as well as guide the agency as we expand to serve the dramatically growing senior population.”

Most recently, Knight served as Director of Social Services and Director of Admissions-Marketing of a long-term care facility helping clients with Alzheimer’s Disease and other forms of dementia.

Her background also includes acting as Executive Director of the Better Business Bureau of South Alabama, and as Interim Executive Director of the YWCA of Greater Mobile, AL.

She holds a BA in Sociology and Organizational Management from Northwestern University, in addition to MS coursework in Behavioral Studies from University of California at Irvine.

Knight’s experiences helping her parents through serious illnesses catalyzed her transition from the private sector to nonprofit leadership. After accessing social programs and supportive services in the community, Knight turned toward nonprofit organizations.

“Community services help shore the individual up,” she said. This strong commitment to civic engagement extends deeply into her personal life, as well. She vol-unteers extensively, both with her family and independently. “It’s how I walk through the world,” Knight explained. “We need to lend our talents and treasures to others.”

She currently mentors young people in the metro Denver area.

The Senior Hub invites everyone to meet Stephanie at the upcoming Open House celebrating the beautiful new site of its Adult Day Service program. The Open House will be at 4 p.m. April 19, at 2360 W 90th Avenue, Federal Heights. Please RSVP at 303 426-4408.
