Home » About Us » Our People

Our staff of professionals is trained in everything from the latest medical care and therapies to healthy and delicious meal preparation. Yet we make room for compassionate connection with residents to take precedence over the necessities of our job descriptions.

We are skilled professionals, yes. And we are here to connect with you in the spontaneous moments that make your life (and ours) more meaningful.

Memory Care Director: Shauna L. McGee

Shauna was born and raised in Cincinnati, holds her LPN from Hondros College of Nursing and has been in the healthcare field for close to 20 years. She began her career as a support care and medication aid in a group home for developmentally disabled adults. She also has experience as an STNA in long term care and skilled nursing facilities. She’s learned through experience that her heart is in dementia and Alzheimer’s care.

“I am a natural born caregiver and love seeing how happy residents can feel in our care. I have met no strangers since joining the Traditions team. We are a family. And seeing residents’ faces light up when we smile and hug is the best part of my day. Family members know we treat their loved ones as our own.” Shauna is the proud mother of a blended family of eight, as well as three grandchildren and another on the way.
