Current APA (and Board) member Tiffany Santos is with Otterbein Senior Life, where she is a Healthcare Navigator. Here is a little more about Tiffany.
Tell us about what you do and how you help the community.
I am the Healthcare Navigator for Otterbein SeniorLife. We offer skilled and long-term care in a unique small house setting. We have locations in Springboro, Middletown, Lebanon, Maineville, Loveland, and Union Township. My role is to work with the hospitals and the community to help navigate all referrals. I love to be able to market our small house concept and educate providers and families on a different type of skilled nursing facility.
Tell us about your work career. How long have you been involved? What brought you into this work? What do you love most?
I have worked in SNF’s for the last 5 years. I have always had an interest in health care, but hate the sight of blood and am a fainter. I searched for many years for my path and a way to assist and actually fell into a role in a SNF admissions role and the passion grew from that day forward. Over the years I was able to advance from an internal role to an external marketing role and love to be able to educate the community on what Otterbein has to offer.
If you could travel anywhere in the world where would it be?
I would love to visit the Maldives.
Tell us about yourself and family.
I am originally from The Plains, OH and moved to Cincinnati in 2012. I have been married to my husband Shane for 7 years, I am a bonus mom to his 3 wonderful daughters ages 20, 17, and 12 and also a fur-mama to a 13 year old mutt and 4 year old English bulldog. Our 12 year old plays travel softball, so most of my time is spent at the ball park, I also enjoy working out and have a guilty pleasure of watching any reality TV show.
What is your go-to restaurant?
Pretty much any pizza place will satisfy me.
What do I enjoy about being a member of APA?
I love the connections it has allowed me to make, and to know I am surrounded by amazing people who all share the same passions it just a great feeling.
What do I do when I am not working?
If I am not working you will find me at the gym or softball fields, or I will more than likely be relaxing on my couch!!
