Meet Beth Fickenscher
Executive Director at The Heritage at Shalimar Gardens
As the Executive Director, I get to spend my day making sure all aspects of the residents and associates time with us is wonderful. From Life Enrichment opportunities to personalized care, dining to transportation - I collaborate with my team to ensure each experience at The Heritage at Shalimar Gardens is the best it can be! We work very hard to make sure all of our residents’ needs are being met and they have all they need to be happy.
I started my career with Heritage in 2011 as the Senior Living Counselor, where I helped families figure out what their next steps should be for their loved ones. In 2014 I was promoted to Executive Director, and I absolutely love the variety each day brings with this role. I love meeting all of the new people I come in contact with each day and helping to make a difference in their lives. I love being a part of the Fremont community and helping seniors here and in the surrounding areas alongside other healthcare providers. I love walking through the hall and hearing the residents and associates laugh and enjoy themselves. I love seeing families get to be families again…..I love all of it!
My mother was a nursing director for a skilled community while I was growing up, so I spent a lot of time volunteering in my youth. Then, in college, I worked as a CNA in Omaha while attending the University of Nebraska at Omaha. I guess you could say I’ve been working with seniors all my life!
I would like to invite you to stop by for a visit, and experience The Heritage at Shalimar Gardens for yourself!
