New executive director focused on ‘improving the lives of seniors’
In July, Arkansas City Presbyterian Manor announced that Virginia “Gini” Myers would be joining the community as its new executive director.
A graduate of Kansas State University with a bachelor’s in social work and a master’s in gerontology with a focus on long-term care administration, Gini has had a lifelong passion to serve.
She began her career as a juvenile intake and assessment worker for the 8th Judicial District Community Corrections Department, where she supported juveniles in crisis. But it wasn’t until she accepted a position as social services and admission liaison for Diversicare of Council Grove, that she found her true calling.
In her position with Diversicare, Gini assisted residents and their families with living transitions, developed care plans, acted as a resident advocate and facilitated communication between residents, families, health care professionals and Diversicare staff.
Sparked by her new-found interest in senior services, Gini recently completed an administrator in training program and achieved licensure as an Adult Care Home Administrator in the State of Kansas—which, when combined with her career experience, provides Gini with a solid background and ample expertise as she starts her new position at Arkansas City Presbyterian Manor.
“Gini’s five-year career in the field of aging services, along with the focus of her college degrees and becoming a Kansas Licensed Adult Care Home Administrator, has provided a solid foundation of experience and knowledge of senior living,” stated Bill Taylor, PMMA’s chief operating officer. “In each of Gini’s roles, she’s placed a great emphasis on improving the lives of seniors. As a licensed social worker and now a licensed nursing home administrator, she personally aligns with PMMA’s mission and our tradition of excellence.”
