One of our newest Board members is Valorie Frantz. Here's a little more about Valorie.
Tell us what you do and how you help the community.
I currently work at Seasons Retirement Community, where I am the Director of Sales and Marketing. Seasons provides senior independent and assisted living apartments for people 62 years and older.
Are you from Cincinnati? If not, where are you from?
I am originally from Toledo, and I moved to Cincinnati in 2012.
If you could travel anywhere in the world (with money being no object), where would you go?
I'd love to visit New Zealand for a month.
What is your biggest inspiration in life or in your job?
My inspiration is my family and friends. With working at Seasons, I love providing an excellent place to live so residents may age in place, with no worries. I am also a nurse; I love to help people anyway I can.
Tell us about yourself and family.
I am married to my husband, Rick. We have two daughters. Alexis is a pediatric nurse who is married to Clay, a pediatric neurosurgeon. They live in Colorado Springs with Landon, who is almost two years old. My other daughter is Maya, who is 23 and a Cincinnati firefighter. Our daughters are our pride and joy and we try to see them as often as we can. We also have two dogs, Moose and Rio.

What do you do when you’re not working?
I love the outdoors – hiking, white water kayaking, off-roading, spending time in Tennessee at our property or visiting Colorado and my kids.
If you had one superpower, what would it be?
My superpower would be flight, so I could get to Colorado fast and see my daughter and grandson whenever I wanted! I also would like to have the power to take away pain to help those suffering.
What is your current and/or past favorite television show?
For a good laugh, the Big Bang Theory. My all-time favorites are Friends and Golden Girls.
