Liberty Lutheran is proud to announce Katrina Kane Wise, Vice President of Liberty Lutheran and Executive Director of Paul’s Run Retirement Community, has been selected by Governor-Elect Tom Wolf to serve on the transition team for Aging. The transition review teams will work with the outgoing administration to better understand the issues and challenges that face the new executive branch.
“When I received the call from Governor-Elect Wolf’s representative, I was so honored to have the opportunity to help shape the direction for aging persons in Pennsylvania in this new administration,” Kane Wise said. “Governor-Elect Wolf is very committed to seniors, so I am confident he and his team will value our recommendations,” she added.
Wise holds an M.B.A. and is a licensed nursing home administrator with more than 30 years of experience in long-term care for non-profit and for-profit organizations. For 28 of those years she has worked for Social Ministry Organizations of the Southeastern Pennsylvania Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America. Currently she serves on the Board of Directors for the Southeastern Pennsylvania Non-Profit Association of Homes for the Aging (SEPANPHA) and is co-chair of the SEPANPHA Human Resource Committee.

I am pleased to announce this outstanding group of individuals who will review state agencies and provide insight into issues that will allow me to have the knowledge necessary to hit the ground running on January 20.”
