Otterbein North Shore Lifestyle Community announces new executive director

Otterbein North Shore, a faith-based nonprofit senior lifestyle community in Lakeside-Marblehead, Ohio, has announced the selection of Jennifer Lenthe, RNBSN, as its new executive director.  Ms. Lenthe will fill the vacancy created by Tom Keith’s departure in September to join a senior living community in Jackson, Michigan. 

“We are very pleased to announce this appointment,” reported Jason Miller, Vice President of Operations for Otterbein Senior Lifestyle Communities.  “Jen has excelled as Director of Nursing providing leadership and care for our residents and rehabilitation patients. To have her step into the role of executive director will provide a seamless transition as we continue to fulfill the Otterbein mission of enhancing quality of care and holistic growth of older persons in the north shore region.”

Prior to joining Otterbein Senior Lifestyle Choices in 2012 as Director of Healthcare Services Jen served several years as an intensive cardiac care nurse. In 2006 she realized a great passion for elder care and services when she transitioned into long-term care as a care coordinator, nursing supervisor and assistant director of nursing. 

Jen grew up on Catawba Island in Port Clinton and graduated from Bowling Green State University with a major in nursing. Jen had the unique opportunity of completing her Administrator in Training program with Otterbein Senior Lifestyle Choices.  Jen and her husband, Steven, have resided in Marblehead for the last fourteen years and are minutes away from Otterbein North Shore. She has four children, two sons, Chance age 20 and Brady age 13; and two daughters, Kylah age 17 and Charley age 6.
