“The years that I have worked for Otterbein have been more rewarding than the last twenty. It is such a privilege to work for Otterbein and be involved with a Christian ministry that enhances older persons’ lives on a continual basis. I cherish the people I work with and the goals we accomplish together to better all those touched by Otterbein.”
