New Director of Residential Living Begins
In early October, Rebekah Johnsen began serving as the Director of Residential Living at Landis Homes. In this role she will coordinate, in partnership with other departments, the supply of programs and services to residents living in apartments, cottages, hybrid homes and suites.
Johnsen is a registered nurse and has been employed at Landis Homes since 2014 as a fill-in campus supervisor and as an emergency nurse. Earlier in her career, she served as a substitute school nurse in the Warwick School District and as a nurse at UPMC Pinnacle Lititz.
She received her associate’s degree and her RN at Penn Medicine Lancaster General Health. She later received her bachelor’s degree in nursing at Eastern Mennonite University, Lancaster. She also attended a one year wilderness school in Wisconsin where she received a bible certificate.
Rebekah with her husband, Rob, and their three school-aged children attend LCBC Church, Ephrata. She enjoys teaching Sunday school and being a parent volunteer in the Warwick School District. In addition to spending time with her family, her interests are being outdoors, gardening and pursuing fitness.
Commenting on her new role, Rebekah said, “I have found Landis Homes to be a great place to work. I look forward to connecting with the residents and finding creative ways to make living on campus even better.”
