Beth Quartermaine, Home Manager
Beth joined our team in 2013 as a caregiver at Cretsinger Country Place. Her easy going manner and sweet temperament helped her move into a more challenging position as Assistant Manager. After more than a year in the position at Cretsinger Country Place, Beth moved to Pennfield Premier Living. Beginning as the Third Shift Assistant Manager at Pennfield Premier Living, Beth quickly realized she wanted to be there when all of the residents were awake and moved into the first shift manager position. Always willing to tak on new tasks, Beth became a certified instructor for the American Red Cross in July 2015.
In December of 2019, Beth accepted the promotion to Home Manager at Cretsinger East. Her vast experience has well prepared her for this position. Beth is a team player and the first one to step in when something needs to be done. Beth has always led with compassion and kindness combined with firm expectation. We couldn't ask for a better leader for Cretsinger East.
