Community Relations Director: Mark Sharp

"I want residents and families to feel welcome here, listened to and cared for with the compassion of a family member. We are blessed to feel like a family here, and family members are flexible and accommodating to each others' needs and concerns. Our residents are parents, grandparents, spouses and friends and they are special! I work to make their transition to their new home smooth and joyful, and individualize their experience. Each day here will be spent doing what they enjoy, indulging in meals that they love and feeling a sense of belonging, care and kindness." Mark and his husband, Brian live in Butler Township with their full-blooded Persian rescue kitty, Rusty.
Independent Living Director: Elizabeth Bowen
Liz has a Bachelor's degree in Advertising and Public Relations from Pensacola Christian College and volunteered as an Activities Director assistant at a senior living community before coming to Beavercreek.
"I was immediately drawn to this beautiful campus. But the fact that Traditions places genuine care and compassion for residents first was what stayed with me. Caring for others is a noble profession and something I've wanted to be involved with since I was a child." Liz and her husband have been married since 2018 and share their home with their black Lab, two cats and two guinea pigs.
