Lutheran Disaster Response 



It was exactly this time last year that we announced the arrival of Phil Harrington as the interim president and CEO at LSMNJ. We are thrilled to share that we have recently welcomed  Colleen Frankenfield as LSMNJ's new president and CEO. 
Colleen brings a varied background and wealth of experience to the organization. After earning a nursing degree from Felician College (Lodi, NJ), Colleen obtained a masters in health care administration from St Joseph's University (Philadelphia, PA), earned her Juris Doctor from the Widener University School of Law (Wilmington, DE) and is a candidate for a masters in business administration at West Chester (PA) University. Licensed as a registered nurse as well as a nursing home administrator, she is also a member of the bar in both New Jersey and Pennsylvania.
LUTHERAN SENIOR LIFE walks to support Alzheimer's
Lutheran Senior LIFE formed a team  in support of the Alzheimer's Association
Walk to End Alzheimer's, in September at Liberty State Park.
Mia Phifer, executive director of LIFE reflected on the day, "Participating in this year's Walk to End Alzheimer's was such a rewarding experience. It allowed our team the opportunity to raise awareness about Alzheimer's and related dementia's, with the ultimate goal of finding a cure. It also provided us with a great sense of empowerment, knowing we were making a difference not only for the individuals we serve, but the millions of people who struggle with Alzheimer's each and every day."
