Lisa Kruse, Communications Specialist, Council on Aging of Southwestern Ohio

Count your have’s – not your have-not’s …that’s how I aim to live my life each and every day. And knowing that we have more ways to connect than ever, it’s vital to employ clear, concise and intentional communications.

I am a communications/marketing professional always looking to continue my ongoing quest for clear, concise communication. With proven success simultaneously managing multiple projects, I consistently produce quality results. My strengths include writing, content development, overall marketing strategies, time management and flexibility.

Through my work with Cincinnati Recreation Commission (on and off since 1999) and 4C for Children (2010-11), I have had the opportunity to develop my skills and help spread the good news that’s happening each day in Cincinnati.

I am also a Producer: Fan Experience at the Western & Southern Open (Professional tennis tournament.) I lead the Grandstand production team by directing and coordinating on-court entertainment during the breaks from tennis play. It has been the highlight of my summer since 2007.

Council on Aging description

Council on Aging of Southwestern Ohio (COA) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to enhancing quality of life for older adults, people with disabilities, their families and caregivers. We promote choice, independence, dignity and well-being through a range of services that help people remain in their homes for as long as possible.

Founded in 1971, COA is part of the national aging services network and is a state-designated Area Agency on Aging, serving individuals across a multi-county region. Our core service area includes Butler, Clermont, Clinton, Hamilton and Warren counties, with limited programming in Greene and Montgomery counties. One call to COA links people to the wide variety of agencies, information and programs that serve older adults, people with disabilities and their caregivers.

As an Area Aging on Agency, we are responsible for planning, coordinating and administrating local, state and federally-funded programs and services for older adults, people with disabilities and caregivers in our planning and service area: Butler, Clermont, Clinton, Hamilton and Warren counties.
