The article digs into Barbara’s early years in long-term care, what has motivated her throughout her career, and the close relationships she has developed over her 35-year mission.
Sepich joined WRC Senior Services in 2015 and since has facilitated the opening of Water Run Landing, home to Highland Oaks Personal Care, The Villas Independent Living, and the Bistro, an open-to-the-public restaurant within Highland Oaks. Jay Chamberlin, WRC board member since 2014, stated that Barbara was “well qualified based on her knowledge and experience of senior services, and she demonstrated great leadership qualities and abilities with her previous employment.”
Before coming to WRC, Sepich has been involved in operations, construction, renovation, and start-up of more than thirty-four residential living, skilled nursing, rehabilitation, and personal facilities throughout Pennsylvania, Florida, Maryland, and China.
When the speaking to the WRC Board about their choice of Barbara in 2015 as the CEO/ President, a reoccurring reason was brought up: her various experience, and her inspiring vision for WRC.
