2021 Future Leaders Award
August 2021 - Nikki Jo Olsen, Corporate Resident Enrichment Director, has been selected as one of the winners of Aging Media's 2021 Future Leaders Awards. Nikki Jo is being honored in the category of "Senior Housing," along with other high-performing individuals under the age of 40. "This group of professionals represents the critical skills of tomorrow’s health care leaders," said Aging Media Co-Founder George Yedinak. "Each of these leaders has the professional experience to help their organizations deliver better experiences and outcomes.”
Nikki Jo's recognition is a result of her role in developing and executing Avenida's 5 to Thrive wellness program. Under her guidance, resident engagement in Avenida programming is exceeding participation benchmarks for the senior living industry.
