Dinah Means-Bailes, Planning Committee

Dinah Means-BailesDinah Means-Bailes, AgeSong Liaison, has worked in senior living more than 20 years, but is still always looking for new and better ways to improve care, service, staff benefits and business models. Her passion for education has fueled the internship program at Lakeside Park to include over 18 master and doctorate level students, and the ancestry program to include more than 20 students from local high schools. “One of Dinah’s greatest strengths as a leader is that she builds teams that grow in confidence and skill because of her leadership and mentorship” (Paula Hertel).
