Cincinnati, Ohio – August 15, 2017– Danielle Amrine has been selected Executive Director for the Welcome House of Northern Kentucky. Danielle comes to Welcome House from the Council on Aging, where she served as the Vice President – Operations for Medicaid Services.

While with the Council on Aging (COA), Danielle’s roles included PASSPORT care manager and Care Transitions coach.

The Welcome House Executive Search Committee was co-chaired by board of directors’ chairperson Katie Koch, of St. Elizabeth Physicians, and incoming board chairperson Tom Hausterman, in collaboration with Centennial’s vice president of client engagement, Becky Scheeler.
“We were very pleased with the caliber and quality of candidates, each with an impressive skill set, that were presented to the Welcome House for this critical leadership position,” states Scheeler. “Danielle’s experience working with multiple populations, in addition to her energy and passion made it evident that she was the ‘right’ leader who would help accomplish the Welcome House’s vision and mission.”

She used those skills working with victims of domestic violence as a Women’s Advocate for the YWCA House of Peace Domestic Violence Shelter in Cincinnati.

Tom Hausterman, Welcome House incoming board chairperson comments, “Becky Scheeler provided a clear picture of the pathway, supported us with key information and questions, and went above and beyond when communicating regarding anything we needed in the process. Without Becky’s knowledge, guidance, and understanding of the organization needs, we would have not made a successful hire.
